If you haven’t found the perfect gift for everyone on your list, here are gift ideas that will keep on giving for an entire year. Give a membership in the Society of Professional Journalists and the Chicago Headline Club. Or, give a donation in that person’s name to the CHC Foundation or SPJ’s SDX Foundation.
Bob Herguth Sr., a long-time member and board member during the presidency of Les Brownlee, came up with this idea several years ago. He gave his son, Bob Herguth Jr., a membership. Now they are both members!
If you need a gift idea for a colleague, why not a membership? If you don’t want to spend $92, form a pool. If you are not a member and someone asks you what you want, speak up! A membership in SPJ and CHC. Sign up here or at www.spj.org.
If not a membership, what about a donation to the CHC Foundation? We will gratefully accept any amount for our scholarships, internships and other causes. Or SPJ’s SDX Foundation, which operates on a national level? Checks may be sent to the treasurer for both (as well as CHC):
Howard S. Dubin
1633 Central St.
Evanston, IL 60201

Happy holidays to all of you!
