Dear readers,

We will have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT next week.

How big? Well, of all the announcements that I have made as president, this one is easily in the top five. I think that all people - Chiarians and those that care about them - will be very happy with this news.

Meanwhile, It has been a super busy week and the International Chiari Association (ICA) had another successful board meeting today.

The International Chiari Association (ICA) was at Union Bank on Tuesday and, in addition to being a generous financial sponsor for the Chiari Awareness Celebration, they would also like to make a donation to our event's silent auction.

"We are thankful to Union Bank, which has always been a friend of the ICA," said ICA Founder/President Pete Dal Bello. "They support many nonprofits and we are proud to be a part of that long list. The bank is 150 years old so they know about successfully serving the public for many years. They are actually 147 years older than the ICA."
