The Noon Optimist Club welcomes Amir W. Al-Khafajl, Ph.D., M. ASCE, Professor and Chairperson; Department of Civil Engineering and Construction at Bradley University, on January 32, 2006. The Optimist Cub meets every Tuesday at approximately 11:30-1:00 at Barracks Catering. Our meetings are open to the public and the $9.50 charge includes a buffet lunch.
Dr. Al-Khafajl will speak on “Iraq Today”. He has recently returned from his native Iraq and other locations in the Mid-East. His familiarity with the regions most of us know little about except what we hear, and his experiences and first hand knowledge should help us better understand this area of our world.
Dr. Al-Khafajl may surprise some who have bought in to the “doom and gloom” of the situation in Iraq as described and shown by most of the liberal press.
Look for the announcement of this event in the Journal Star under the heading of “Social Clubs” on Monday January 30.
Hope some of my readers can join us. Having heard Dr, A-Khafajl speak, I believe your time will be well rewarded. Plus, the buffet is excellent.
