EGS Annual Meeting & Holiday Lunch 2010

Our 2010 annual meeting was well attending by local members. We missed our president who was unable to attend because he was needed in Champaign on family business. Our vice-president, Judy Van Dusen, did a great job of filling in and the meeting progressed along nicely.
Suzanne Kovak, Judy Van Dusen,
Treasurer - Tom Cheetham
VP - Judy Van Dusen, Secretary- Suzanne Kovak

Our new executive board was unanimously voted in to office for 2011:
President: Judy Van Dusen
Vice President: Karen Myers
Am Secretary: Suzanne Kovak
Pm Secretary:  Anna Moy
Treasurer: Becky Higgins

Then it was break time and, being the good genealogists we are, we partook from the treats table even though our holiday luncheon was only and hour or so away. We did try to keep the options smaller this year, however.

After the break, we were reminded that our 2010 resolutions would be discussed at the January morning meeting. There are only a few weeks to made sure they've been met.
Then, some of our members shared special family heirlooms and stories with us. We were delighted by some of the unusual items and all the wonderful tales!

Then, we were off to Rolling Knolls Country Club where we mingled and talked and ate lots of food:

After the luncheon, we played a new game called Remembrance Roulette. We all had a number (on our place cards). If your number came up, you had to share a genealogy/family related story and then you got a prize. Since we all love hearing our fellow members' stories, a great time was had by all.

2010 Annual Mtg & Holiday Luncheon

Tuesday, December 7 is fast approaching. Hopefully, you have your reservation made for the holiday luncheon at Rolling Knolls County Club. The luncheon will follow our annual meeting at the Gail Borden Public Library which will begin at 9:30 am.

Bring along a heritage item or heirloom and a story to share. Also, dig back in your memory: have you fulfilled your 2010 genealogy resolution? The deadline is looming but you still have a few days to get that task completed!

Looking forward to seeing everyone for our only meeting in December!!!
