Presidents Notes

Hello fellow East Enders! (Funny how the by-laws includes anybody who resides in Alton or who does business in Alton).

Time has changed some things  - but the by-laws remain unchanged.

I am pleased to say the membership has elected me to serve as EEIA's president the next two years. Thank you for the vote of confidence - I will do my best to be responsible, and to continue to serve the membership & our communities.

Thank you to our past president Richard Gillespie, and the other board members Steve Harmon - Treasurer and Tom Hoechst - Secretary. You did a great job!

Our new slate of officers include myself, Tom Hoechst - VP, Scott Yanta - Treasurer, Joe Schneider - Secretary.

Please check out our webpage:   www.altoneastend.org

We are working on our webpage to provide better information such as; who we are and what we do, meeting dates, scholarship applications, new membership applications, and allow members to pay dues, etc.

Next meeting is February 7th - Honorable Mayor Mike McCormick is scheduled to be our guest speaker.

March 7 is the Mayoral Candidate Forum at the Atrium Hotel. Please plan to attend.  It takes quite a few members to put this on and run smoothly.

Terry Croxford has graciously offered to allow us to tour the quarry. Plans are being made to schedule this event, stay tuned.

Again thanks for your support, look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Fraternally yours,
