Thank you to all who supported the 31st annual Community Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony.
The banquet took place November 14 at Century Center, with almost 600 in attendance. The 2017 inductees are Bishop Donald Alford Sr., Greg & Mary Downes, Billy “Stix” Nicks, William Przybysz, Mikki Dobski Shidler and Horatio Chapin (historic Inductee). Other honors were presented to Dennis Andres, Margaret Dobrowolska-Furdyna, Holladay Properties and Christmas Commandos.
Planning will begin in early 2018 for next year’s banquet. If you would like to nominate someone for the Hall of Fame, send two letters of recommendation to the South Bend Alumni Association, 215 S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., South Bend, IN 46601.

Check this out. 1st Source Bank has provided an opportunity for the South Bend Alumni Association to promote itself with a display in the bank’s lobby at Cleveland and Grape roads. The display will be there throughout the month of January. It includes posters and literature about the SBAA. Two manikins are dressed in historic school band uniforms, courtesy of the Casaday Costume Company, to draw attention to our Co-Ex Grants program. If you’re in that area, stop by and take a look, even if you’re not a bank customer.
