A Message From Our President

After a slow start, summer is here in all its glory. The calendar for the Midwest Furniture Club is heating up too, with our annual golf outing all set for August 6 in Huntley IL and our Midwest Furniture Show returns to Niles on September 16th and 17th. In addition we have some plans for an outing at the Rosemont stadium, home to the Chicago Dogs. Promises to be a full night of camaraderie and fun. Our goal is to make sure all of our members are aware of everything their Midwest Furniture Club membership entitles them to, including all the IHFRA benefits they are due.

It’s never been a better time to be a part of the Midwest Furniture Club, and we want you to be here and a part of the new and changing Chicago Furniture Market. For membership information, please check out our membership page. We meet at the beginning of each month, usually the first Friday, and welcome all participants to attend.

Great Day with a Great Group of People during our End of the Year Meeting!

The following is a letter from the Alexandar Graham Bell Montessori School, where we donated the proceeds from the annual Midwest Furniture Golf Outing.

Dear Mark and Group,
As always, we are deeply touched by your continued support and generous donation to the school. I can assure you this donation in the amount of $7,650.00 will be put to very good use to continue our work with children who benefit from the use of cued speech.

For those of you new to the group, Cued Speech is a visual mode of communication in which mouth movements of speech combine with "cues" to make the sounds (phonemes) of traditional spoken languages look different. Cueing allows users who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have language/communication disorders to access the basic, fundamental properties of spoken languages through the use of vision.

For those of you who were fortunate to have known Bill Krause, you know how passionate he was about this school and it's growth, sustainability and continued success with children. Your willingness to continue remember him in this way is very touching for each of us at AGBMS-AEHI.

As we look back over time, we find ourselves wondering... did we remember to thank you enough for all you have done for us? For all the times you continued to support us and were there to celebrate our successes? Please accept our heartfelt thanks for all you do for the children and families we serve and for always remembering Bill and what he stood for.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~ Marcel Proust
