We ventured to WhirlyBall in Lombard for a fun-filled outing Sept. 27. For the uninitiated, WhirlyBall is a combination of basketball and lacrosse while driving bumper cars. West Side Branch president Michael Tauber had a blast, saying that playing WhirlyBall was one of the items on his bucket list. The games were heated, but for some reason the younger members seemed to have the advantage. Everyone enjoyed the competition and refreshments, then returned home to nurse their bruises and sore muscles.
George Zehak attended the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine White Coat ceremony Oct. 2. He reports that it is inspiring to see all of our future dentists (Class of 2019). We thank George for representing our branch at the ceremony
Bob Deaver reports that he is being a good grandparent and is spoiling his 9-month-old grandson, Will. Bob tells us his wife Karla is doing well fighting a three-year battle with cancer. Bob recently returned from a trip to Istanbul, wheere he was working with Médecins Sans Frontières (aka Doctors Without Borders) to provide aid to Syrian refugees. Bob says it was even worse then he imagined. A typical day’s work was 16 hours and his assignment was for five days. This has been Bob’s mission every year since he graduated from dental school in 1982. He has made 51 trips so far. He is grateful to be in this country with all of the blessings that we have.
Patrick Angelo, John Hartman, Frank Trocchio and Marie Walsh celebrated their 35th anniversary graduating from Loyola University School of Dentistry with a trip to the Marina Grand Resort in New Buffalo, MI. They look like they just graduated yesterday!
Rick Munaretto, Stephen Soppet and Jerry Udelson went to Unalakleet, AK, to do some fly fishing. They tell us they caught quite a few fish. Sounds like we don’t have to eat salmon at the next meeting.
Good news for Ahmed Masoud. He passed the qualifying exam for his neuroscience PhD. Ahmed also took a course on scoring sleep. He is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry.
