      Update from the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District:                 Hi  everyone,     My  name  is  Brooke  Crawford  and  I  am   the  Illinois-­‐Eastern  Iowa  District   Governor.    Our  district  is  made  up  of  15   clubs  and  273  members,  and  as  our   name  states  it  includes  the  entire  state   of  Iowa  as  well  as  the  Eastern  part  of   Iowa.    This  year  our  district  has  decided   to  put  a  large  focus  on  growth  and   involvement  of  our  clubs—for  the  first   year  we  are  implementing  a  President’s   Council  to  encourage  clubs  and  club   officers  to  feel  more  engaged  in  what   our  district  and  is  involved  in.    I  am   extremely  excited  to  see  what  the  rest  of   this  year  has  for  our  district  and  how  we   can  grow  in  membership  and  service.     We  have  a  few  upcoming  events  in  I-­‐I,  such  as  our  Leadership  Training  Retreat   which  will  be  at  Augustana  College  from  September  25-­‐26,  Holiday  Embrace  which   will  be  held  in  Bloomingdale,  IL  on  January  16,  as  well  as  DCON  which  will  be  later   in  March.    We  would  love  to  invite  you  to  join  us  for  Holiday  Embrace  which  is  a   dinner-­‐dance  fundraiser  that  our  district  holds  every  year  to  raise  money  for  the   Spastic  Paralysis  Research  Foundation.    Please  feel  free  to  reach  out  to  me  if  you   have  any  questions  regarding    any  of  our  events  or  clubs.     Sincerely,   Brooke  Crawford   ccrawfor@iwu.edu
