LDE 2014 Annual Meeting and Dinner Report
By Julie Chernoff
The skies were intermittently stormy, but there was nothing but sunshine inside the The Racquet Club of Chicago on Monday, June 16 for the LDE Chicago Chapter Annual Dinner.
The great news kept coming: Roberti Community House as our new Community Service Project; a glowing Treasurer’s Report with the amazing results of Swank-a-Licious! fundraiser; the recognition of our hardworking, outgoing Board members and Past Presidents; the approval and introduction of our incoming Board; and the induction of 5 new Dames (Elizabeth Donovan, Mary Kay Gill, Kimberly Allen Hack, Roisin Hannerty, and Marsha Nelson Pesavento), and the reinstatement of two returning members (Dames Amy Morton and Terri Walman). Special guest Dame Lori Willis, St. Louis Chapter and 1st VP LDEI, also joined us for the evening. Welcome, all!
Special thanks to Dame Shannon Kinsella, who produced the evening along with Past President Jen Lamplough—and also to Dame Melissa Lehman Zorio and her wonderful staff at the Racquet Club of Chicago—for a lovely evening.
