On a more personal note, John Kaminski and his wife, Ann, traveled to Granada, Spain, to visit their daughter Natalie. She is a Spanish major at the University of Illinois and spent a semester studying abroad.
Peter DiChristofano celebrated the wedding of his son, Peter, to Erica in June.
Lou Imburgia also celebrated the June wedding of his daughter, Michelle, to Scott Camp. The ceremony was at the Loyola University Madonna Della Strada with the reception at the Knickerbocker Hotel. The couple honeymooned in Hawaii. Michelle is an assistant attorney general in Lisa Madigan’s office and Scott works at a private law firm in Chicago.
Tom Schneider and Tim Tishler went fishing in Canada with their sons, Peter and Peter. Tim took the best catch, a 48-inch muskie. Tom and his wife, Sarah, have enjoyed the summer in Door County, where their daughter Margaret worked prior to beginning her studies at St. Louis University this fall.
Spencer Bloom and his wife, Kimbra, were in Detroit for the Academy of General Dentistry’s Annual Session. Both donated art projects to the silent auction, which benefited the AGD Foundation.
Congratulations to Mary Starsiak, recipient of the Raffaele Suriano Award from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Mary just completed her term as chair of the Illinois State Board of Dentistry. Mary also headed the medical triage for the Mission of Mercy in Peoria, as well as traversed the United States to oversee the administration of NERB, CRDTS, and WREB exams.
Congratulations also to Melissa Connell on the March birth of her son, James Robert Burger. Sisters Stella (4) and Zoe (2) are thrilled with their baby brother.
Our sincerest best wishes go out to Kevin King, who retired this year after 36 years of practice. He and his wife, Jackie, will enjoy time with their children and grandchildren. Kevin will also spend time enjoying golf, gardening and photography.
