Happy summer! Finally, after enduring cold and windy weather for what felt like forever, we have some gorgeous sun and perfect temperatures.  Appreciate, because as we all know, soon enough we’ll be sweating and turning on the AC….

We have four new board members to welcome this month, and a board-member-become-officer to welcome as well. Welcome to Richard Clemmitt, Judy Kohl, Beth Naegele, and Richard Spears as board members. We look forward to working with all of them in the next few years! And thanks and welcome to Richard Leasure for taking over as Secretary. Our biggest challenge in this transition will keeping our ‘Richards’ straight. We will be having a combined board meeting at the end of June to say thanks and goodbye to our outgoing board members, and to welcome and our new ones and put them to work!

Please join us for the closing program of our season on Monday, June 5 at St. Giles Episcopal Church in Northbrook! We’ll be hearing an excellent recital by members Phillip Kloeckner, Richard Clemmitt, Alan Hommerding, Todd Gresick and Derek Nickels. The theme of the recital is “War and Peace”. Following the recital, we will have a gala reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres.

We are very, very excited about introducing our 2017-18 season of programming! It will mark the 60th anniversary of the North Shore chapter, and we will celebrate the entire year! Each program will include some remembrance of our history together.  Brochures will be available at the program next Monday, and will be rolled out in the July Overtones as well.

Hope to see many of you on June 5, and have a relaxing and delightful summer!

Andrea Handley, Dean
