From Martin Woulfe:
Weather permitting, we will meet at 2:00 pm [on Thursday, April 9] at the Lincoln Home Visitor’s Center and join the bell ringing ceremony that starts at 2:15. Afterwards, accompanied by music and more bell ringing, the group will march to the Old State Capitol where Dr. Wes McNeese will speak about the struggle for racial equality.
Rain is predicted tomorrow, so please dress appropriately for the weather. Bring an umbrella, or bring an extra umbrella for a friend!
If the weather is severe at 2 pm and the forecast shows no immediate improvement, we will not meet at the Lincoln Home but everyone is to go directly to the Old State Capitol and arrive by 2:30pm. We will gather inside on the ground floor. There, we will observe four minutes of bell ringing, followed by singing and then the program will follow in the Representatives Hall.
We invite all citizens here in the home of Lincoln who remain concerned about racial justice to join in this commemoration in the hope that we can follow in the footsteps of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. in their struggle for racial equality.

Hello. I’m Kevin Laughery, the administrator of gsia.info; I also happen to be the current president of GSIA. I ran this site for a number of years, and now it is necessary to start over with the site.
Today, Tuesday, March 3, 2015, we had to cancel our regular meeting due to ice. My diocesan office was closed as well. Sitting at home in New Berlin, I decided to get the site rolling.
The Board of GSIA will meet again on Tuesday, March 24, 8:30 am, at Temple Israel, 1140 West Governor, Springfield.
After the board meeting we will announce plans for the meeting of Tuesday, April 7, 11:45 am to 1:30 pm. We have offers from both Third Presbyterian Church, 1030 North Seventh Street, Springfield, to host that day as they had planned to host today; and from Sister Marcelline Koch, O.P., to present that day her thoughts on her January visit to Iraq.
