Hello Fellow Readers,

The ILA Conference in St. Louis, MO, will be here before you know it. As the host state organization, MSC-IRA leaders and local council leaders have worked hard with ILA to plan a WONDERFUL conference for you. There are two invitations we especially would like to extend to EVERYONE:

1. Literacy Night at the Ballpark – Saturday, July 18, 2015, 6:15 PM
Join us at Literacy Night at the Ballpark. The St. Louis Cardinals take on the Mets. Also, it is Matt Carpenter Bobblehead night. Calling all bobblehead collectors! Matt Carpenter is ready to join your collection. 25,000 fans ages 16 and older will take home the St. Louis Cardinals’ Third Baseman’s bobblehead!


Proceeds from tickets will support state, national, and international literacy causes. There are just a few AWESOME seats left at the special conference price of $45+service charge. Purchase tickets at this secure site:

2.  MSC-IRA Meet and Greet This will be held in Room 160 at the Conference Center on Sunday, July 19 from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. We would especially like our fellow Missouri attendees to drop in and pay us a visit. You do not have to be a member of a local council or MSC-IRA to join us. Light refreshments will be served.

MSC-IRA looks forward to seeing all of you at the conference!

It is with sadness that MSC-IRA announces the death of Clarence Malcolm, dear husband of Dolores Malcolm. Those who knew him well describe him as “a true gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor.” He was well known in the St. Louis community and belonged to several organizations. His wife, Dolores, is a Past President of the IRA and a resident of St. Louis, MO. Our deepest condolences and thoughts are with the Malcolm family.
