HAPPY NEW YEAR!…

Best wishes for a Happy New Year to all Circumnavigators, Family and Friends. Our Club has now entered its 115th year, and we look forward to another year of exciting travels and events. It is worth noting that when the new U.S. President is inaugurated later this month, there will have been 20 Presidents during the lifetime of the Club, beginning with Teddy Roosevelt. Astounding advances in travel and communications have made the world a lot smaller than in those years. On the other hand, political unrest and terrorism have made the world a lot larger, with many popular destinations now inaccessible. So, our Club mission is as important as ever — to make the world better through friendship and understanding.

 

John & Annie Glenn with Jeff & Elizabeth Kelly

FAREWELL TO JOHN GLENN…

The world lost a number of outstanding people in 2016, among them Circumnavigator John Glenn. In 2001, Senator Glenn received our highest honor, the Order of Magellan, in “recognition of his lifetime contributions to the exploration of space and leadership of his country.”  250 Circumnavigators and guests packed the Union League Club as President Jeff Kelly presented Senator Glenn with his award. The world lost a hero and statesman, and the Club lost one of its most prestigious members.

CIRCUMNAVIGATOR PARRISH FEATURED AGAIN…

Last month we reported that our prolific traveling Chicago Chapter member, Don Parrish, was featured in a major article in the German newspaper Die Zeit. Now the Chicago Tribune has run a wonderful piece on Don, recognizing his accomplishment as perhaps the most traveled person in the world. Click here to view the story (opens in a new window).
