DINING HALL RENOVATION
The Colita Nicholson bequest has enabled the Capital
Funds Campaign to embark on a kitchen and dining room remodeling
project. At its completion Olcott will have a kitchen that satisfies the DuPage County Health Department code and
a dining room that will be a place of beauty for staff and visitors. The
project includes funding for a new stove,
ovens, stainless steel work tables and shelving. The remodeled dining and
multipurpose area will compliment Jeff's and Michele's cooking, as well as provide a
pleasant space for meetings, celebrations, and casual recreation. Nicholson
Hall will be a tribute to the generosity of Colita, sister-in-law to
Shirley Nicholson who is resident head of Krotona Institute in Ojai,
California. The projected completion date is early February, so plan your visits for anytime

THE THEOSOPHICAL ORDER OF SERVICE
|Chushul Orphanage in Tibet
By Tim Boyd
It is with great joy that I report that the building
project for the Chushul Orphanage in Tibet has been completed. The
project began 2 years ago when Betty and David Bland, who had just returned
from the Theosophical Society's pilgrimage to Tibet, presented the idea to the TOS. They had visited the orphanage and raised the initial funds among their
fellow pilgrims. The original goal was to raise enough to build new bath and
shower facilities for the kids. Last year when the second TSA pilgrimage traveled to
Tibet, I was able to visit the orphanage. Read more...
The 2010 Theosophical World Congress hosted by the Societa

Congress with the Summit Roma Hotel prior to booking flights. Remember, summer is high
season in Italy. It is a very popular destination and availability at the
Summit is limited.
After the Theosophical World Congress in Rome, the

fascinating country. We will explore art, architecture, ruins, and religious
traditions in Rome, Pompeii, Pisa, Assisi, Florence, and Venice!

Olcott Drama Troupe
The Olcott Drama Troupe invites
participation in our new acting group at the Theosophical Society in America,
in Wheaton. Having recently finished a production of Persephone, a tongue in cheek comedic treatment of the ancient
Greek story of how the seasons came to be, we are now working
on productions of old-time radio shows such as The Shadow, Lone Ranger, The Jack
Benny Show, etc. Interspersed with each show will be live renderings of old radio
commercials. We read from scripts, so memorizing
lines is not necessary. We perform at The Theosophical Society's own Open MicSoirées, at various celebrations, and at local senior homes (and perhaps soon, hospitals). Join us for the fun! We practice every other Tuesday at 5 pm in the library (or
