DINING HALL RENOVATION
 

amethyst clusterThe 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 after that.

 THE THEOSOPHICAL ORDER OF SERVICE



Chushul Orphanage in Tibet
By Tim Boyd

amethyst clusterIt 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...

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 Mic

Bishop Spong and the other nationally recognized speakers who will join us in April, know the place of reconciliation, forgiveness, and the reclamation of life's fullness. Our conference is not a castigation of religion but rather a time of joy, healing, and hope for reconciliation.

 NEWS FROM TSA PRESIDENT BETTY BLAND



Personnel Changes

Difficult financial times have forced us to make some difficult decisions. Consequently, the Theosophical Society national center staff has been restructured and downsized. As a result, two employees are no longer on staff: Ruthann Fowler, program coordinator; and Beverly Porzelt, TPH customer service. This was difficult for all of us but necessary for the long range management of our resources. 


We are very grateful for their service and they will be missed. Ruthann added sparkle to our environment and served the society for over 20 years. Beverly was a dedicated and efficient worker. We send them off with best wishes for the future. Their duties have been redistributed among our other staff members, so please be understanding as we adjust to the increased workload.



Break-In


Thieves broke into the maintenance garage on the night of Feb 1st.  Items stolen included two power generators, a power washer, multiple sets of sockets, wrenches, various other tools, and the blue truck. The truck was found abandoned a few miles away, but all the tools and equipment are gone.  With all the financial problems the Society is facing, this theft could not have come at a worse time. We would appreciate any donations to help us replace this equipment.

 TSA IN WIKIPEDIA

amethyst cluster

Wikipedia is one of the most widely used resources on the Internet. As most of you will know, it is an online encyclopedia consisting of articles written collaboratively by volunteer editors around the world.

 

Our archivist, Janet Kerschner, found the article titled "Theosophical Society in America" to be confusing and poorly organized, with very little information about our organization, so she has rewritten it. Janet says, "My objective was to define our organization and distinguish it from two earlier societies that used the same name. Since I was writing an encyclopedia article rather than a piece of marketing literature, it was particularly important to be balanced and neutral, and to document the facts with appropriate footnotes. I especially tried to be fair and brotherly in treatment of other Theosophical groups."

 

Please take a look at the new article online . You may learn something new!




  EARTH FLAG

 

amethyst cluster

 

The Theosophical Society has completed the S.C.A.R.C.E. Sustainability Assessment documenting our environmental efforts. Beginning with the TOS Battery Recycling project (2006), to our ongoing tree replacement program, campus composting, and participation in DuPage County's Green Fair (2009), the staff at Olcott has risen to the challenge and earned our Earth Flag!

 

And this is only the beginning--the commitment to a healthy environment is a continuing process. Sustaining and expanding our environmental projects in-house, hosting educational programs and events for the public, and coordinating efforts with ecological groups in our area are included in our plans for the future.

 

The Earth Flag was displayed in the auditorium for the Celebrate the Season program and will have a temporary home in the Olcott library until the official outdoor flag raising ceremony in the spring.
