To all our IML friends and associates,

We have a very good lineup for the 2nd quarter this year including a meeting in the lobby of the Hammonds School of Architecture with the Chairman, Professor Bruce Moore making the presentation after a brief tour of the facility.  We also have a program featuring Leslie Forrester, Executive Director Springfield Regional Arts Council and a program featuring Brian Fogle President of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.  There are many more very good programs planned.  All in all I think it will be a very interesting and exciting quarter.

I hope you can be at most, if not all of the meetings!!


John Thurman, Chairman
