It’s frightening to think that in just a few short months, we may be worrying about another snowmageddon or polar vortex. But as the seasons change and the summer runs down, our West Suburban meeting schedule ramps up!
We have a fantastic set of meetings lined up for the year (and delicious Maggiano’s food as well). There will be a little something for everybody, from cosmetic dentistry to periodontal surgery and many things in between.
We will also be holding a fantastic social event for member and non-member dentists at Pinstripes (a bowling and games bar and restaurant). We hope to grow our robust branch membership, so be sure to bring your colleagues and show them what a good time we have as a branch.
This spring was very busy for our branch, as we combined our May meeting with our Installation of Officers.
Illinois State Dental Society President Brian Soltys graciously accepted an invitation to install our new board. Doug Kay is now our fearless leader. We wish him much success and sanity over the coming year, and thank outgoing president Derrick Williamson for the excellent job he did.
Congratulations to Edward Kasper, Bob Banks and Martin Sanders, who won the iPod Touch raffle at our May 13 meeting!
Barb Chang and her husband, Bill, spent six days in China in early May volunteering on their fifth dental mission trip with Education, Medical Aid and Service (EMAS). EMAS is the Canadian affiliate of the Christian Medical and Dental Society. The seven-member team included three dentists. They served the Hmong farming community in three villages near the city of Kunming.
Aaron Figueroa, Alex Figueroa and Alvaro Figueroa (along with their significant others) had a great time visiting with family and exploring Guatemala this past spring. It is a rare occasion to get the whole Figueroa family together, as Alvaro’s youngest son, Aaron, is an oral maxillofacial surgery resident at the University of Iowa and doesn’t have much free time.
Our annual golf outing at Old Oak Country Club in Homer Glen was a big hit despite the rainy weather. A good time was had by all and we hope that many more of you will join us next year on June 10. Mark your calendars now!
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Don’t forget to send us updates and photos so we can share all the fun and interesting things you all do!
