• Joyce is Lt Gov of our zone and was elected Finance Chair of the Illinois District. Congratulations, Joyce!!

• As a new project, we would like to sponsor a college Optimist Club. A student needs to take 12 credit hours in order to be a member. A college group would require 15 members. We would have to fund the $400 cost to charter this club.

• Christmas trees arrive November 28th at Country Fair Shopping Center.

• Life member dues are increasing to $436.20.

• Door prizes were won by Elaine, Gene and Andrea.

WTF! - How do animals similar to Bernaldo Bicoy - who is a twice convicted child molestor get bail?

This punk faked himself as a attorney and business investor consultant to win trust of kids. Out of all people, the govern lets him home?

It's sad but the streets of Lake Forest are now dangerous. Who do we petition?

My husband travels for a living. Much more times than he would care to count, his organization has booked him into a hotel which does not provide cable Tv. Last year, while surfing the web, he came across a site the allows him to Watch Frasier Online. Now he has something to try and do on those nights when he is bored. This makes me very happy as there had been nights when he would go out searching for one thing to perform. He would often spend much more out for the town than he had made that day watch frasier. His work is to bring capital in, not spend more than he makes watch frasier online free.
