    We learned recently that long time Illinois community member Jim Obst has died. He was a good guy and he made significant contributions to our chapter, including putting together our chapter newsletter for many years. His obituary requests that we honor him by planting memorial trees. If you would like to participate, reach out to Lorene Kennard to obtain her Venmo or Zelle info: We will make the donation the week of November 16th.
