For the past two years I have had the honor of being the president of I.B.M. Ring 41. What an honor it has been! What a thrill it was to receive in the name of Ring 41 the I.B.M. 65th Anniversary Award of the International Brotherhood of Magicians at our 2010 Holiday Party.
Calling the monthly meeting to order was also an honor, but the opportunity to meet the members of Ring 41 in a professional manner and to discover what magic means to each individual was also very gratifying.
The June meeting will be a opportunity for the membership to select new officers. I would encourage all of our members to attend.
In closing, I want to thank Bob Salzer for his years of serving the Ring as Treasurer and for the outstanding job he did.
Mike Miller has been very help and very dedicated to the magic of Ring 41.
It goes without saying that David Swoboda has enhanced our web and monthly newsletter along with keeping the meeting minutes.
A special "thank you" to Paul Foject for putting together the excellent lectures we have had this year..
Not to be forgotten is our Sargeant At Arms Maria Kurtz. Thanx Maria.
Thank you to all the members who helped to make I.B.M. Ring 41 special in the magic community.
Dale L. Radke — President
