Don Behl reminded the Club that their past foreign-exchange student from Australia, Diana Ruehl, will be visiting and be the program keynoter at the next meeting. New member Kim Durbin was in attendance for the first time. She is the manager of the Villas of Hollybrook, in Shelbyville and said that they have opened a new facility in Washington Illinois and it may have experienced some damage from the recent tornado that hit that town.
