NOTICE TO MEMBERS
It is my sad duty to inform you of the passing of member Chuck Giannini. He passed June 01,2019. Chuck joined the 5-11 Club Chicago until he became ill. He was also a member of Chicago Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Service for 10 years. Chuck as we often called him "NAILS" was a great guy and my best friend. You will be missed by many.
We'll take it from here.
