 General Meeting 

Welcome Club has a fun-filled general Meeting scheduled for April. First, there is our annual book sale to benefit the Illinois Youth Center. Members can bring books to be sold and purchase books to enjoy at home. Second, we will have a presentation by Marlise Schlitz of the St. Charles Library.  She will explain the assistance available in the library for choosing books and researching topics. Finally, we will have a selection of teas to savor. along with light tea-time snacks. This promises to be an entertaining and enlightening morning.


Submissions for each newsletter must be received in writing by the 7th of each month in order to be in the next edition.
