Governor, Dick Cox, who performed the installation ceremonies. Entertainment was provided by a barber-shop singing group from DeKalb, IL who really rocked the crowd.

Secretary Jim Busse presented newly-installed President Larry Wing with a new gavel with which to hold meetings. The gavel was a gift to the club from Past Secretary Carl Polstra, it being the gavel presented to him for his time ad Division 13 Lt. Governor.
