We had a great meeting in November at our new venue, Louie’s Chop House, with several new members present!
I extend a big welcome to Stephanie Colletta, Robin Gallardi, Chris Neal, Paraj Patel and Ann Redmond.
Andy Moormann’s daughter, Andrea, graduated from Midwestern University in occupational therapy. Andy says she’s finally off the ghost payroll!
Wally Lamacki’s grandson, Cole Murphy, played on a championship Wisconsin football team. His granddaughter, Lt. Amanda Lamacki, is a nurse now at Lurie Children’s Hospital.
Bill Petty’s baby girl, Karen, is engaged! Better be saving your money, Bill!
Glenn Bailey was on high alert at our November meeting. The wife of his son Brian Bailey, Jennifer, was in labor. Glenn was miffed that Brian wasn’t at the meeting because Glenn had paid for his meal. Glenn said I could quote him: “the only part that’s important for Brian to be at was the conception.” Nice, Glenn! Baby Jocelyn was born Nov. 11.
Rick Facko, who grew up in Palos, recently opened a pediatric dental practice near Nick Cudney’s office in Palos Heights. The mayor and county commissioner were present for a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the office.
We welcome pediatric dentist Chris Neal, who has recently joined Ned Savide in Palos Heights. Chris is a graduate of the University of Southern California and Michigan State University.
Stephanie Colletta has joined Tom Meyering in his Oak Lawn practice. Unfortunately, her husband has taken an oral surgery residency in California and she’ll be leaving us in six months. Now why would she want to leave Illinois for sunny California?
I hope everyone had a happy holiday season, and is enjoying the best of everything in this new year!
