We had nice weather and a great turnout on January 16 for the annual Dudes 'n' Divas Dinner at
Court Restaurant Arlington Heights. Thirty-six people
enjoyed the ambiance of a "private" room. Tom Bruin supplied red wine
for the tables. Those with January birthdays wore hats or crowns and the group
sang to them. The Board gave each lady a pink rose which Pete and Marylu Kramer
distributed at the end of the meal. Once again, this was a terrific way to
shake off the post-holiday doldrums and get together with great friends. Thank
you to Ken and Kathy Smizinski for planning it.
In attendance were: Lee & Gina Bakakos, Bill & Jane Balogh, Tom & Judy Bruin, Laura & Mike Cielenski, Joe & Barb Esdale, Joel Greenberg & Annie Luginbill, Gail Hascek, Larry & Karen Kelly, Len & Mary Keil, Pete & Marylu Kramer, Ed Levin & Rose Kovalenko, Dan Mrozek & Arlene Figlia, Debbie Powless, Doug & Soon Rogers, Lloyd & Joan Schellin, Ken & Kathy Smizinski, Bob & Barb Sroka, Liz & Bill Werth, Jim & Jane Wilson.
