We had a very enjoyable Valentine Dance with good food, enjoyable music, and great company. The website has been updated with 43 ads from those who sponsored a table at the dance with their $25 donation to the UIS Scholarship Fund. Thanks to all who attended and those that donated gift baskets and other items to make the dance a success!

A Message from the President
There is NO July meeting. Enjoy the holiday and we will see you on the 2nd of August.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the UIS Family Picnic this past Sunday and special thanks to the cooks, Dave Sabatelli and Earl Einhaus and the setup crew, Phil Sabatelli, Paul Wagner, Sandy Sabatelli and Rose Einhaus.
Since the departure of Fr. Earl Fernandes, Sacred Heart no longer says Mass in Italian, but the church still needs our support. The Italian groups have made the first Sunday of each month as ‘Italian Sunday’ at Sacred Heart Church and ask for your support at the 9:00 a.m. Mass those days.
President, United Italian Society
