Welcome back to a new branch year and I hope everyone had a great summer! First up our venue will be changing to Louie’s Chophouse at 4642 W. 103rd St., Oak Lawn. Please take note when you receive your first branch mailing with dinner information.
Congratulations to our new branch leaders: Englewood Branch Director John Kozal, President-elect Bill Hajiharis, Secretary Ammar Adam, Treasuer Andy Moormann and Vice President/Program Chair Nick Cudney.
Congratulations to Steve Nicorata. His son, Dan, and daughter-in-law, Erin, made him a new grandfather: a new Nicorata boy, Dominic!
Andy Moormann has been busy rehabbing a wheelchair accessible van into a mobile dental unit. He’s using an electric wheelchair designed for people with spinal cord injuries as a dental chair, whereby he can transport the patient into the unit if the procedure requires; he has a portable bedside unit for those too ill to be transported. Most of these patients are seen after hours and many are patients of record or family members of such persons. Kudos to you, Andy!
The Kozal clan was on hand for Mission of Mercy: John Kozal; wife Roxanne; and daughters Katarina, Anastasia and Tatiana! Our own Younger Unger, Joe Unger, was also present, as was yours truly.
Wally Lamacki performed the honors for his granddaughter, Amanda, who was sworn in May 16 as a second lieutentant in the U.S. Army. She graduated the next day from Case Western Reserve University as a nurse. I know two very proud grandparents!
We welcome Dana Fort as our New Dentist Network Leader. We all look forward to seeing her at our branch meetings. Now let the branch year begin!
Lastly, big congratulations to our new prez, Alex Haralampopoulos! On hand for the installation were his beautiful sister, Stella Haralampopoulos, and her husband, Chris Ullmann. Stella and Chris were both students of mine at Loyola!
