Henry Dreuth, a long time FAD Member and founder of FAD News passed away in December. He was also instrumental in purchasing our current land and securing funds to build our club house back in early 1970’s. ! In 1956 - Henry Dreuth along with several other members came up with the idea of having a monthly newsletter to share news and events. For the last 56 years, FAD News has shown up in mailboxes of FAD members and friends. Starting this month, January 2014 FAD News has made the digital switch. How fitting that Henry Dreuth passed away on the month of FAD News’ last mailbox-based newsletter. Godspeed Henry, you will be missed. Thanks for all you’ve done for FAD!!

GU President comes to Flint Dr. Alan Hurwitz, current President of Gallaudet University was in town for the Gallaudet University’s Midwest Academic Bowl competition. It turns out he’s a childhood buddy of our very own Marilyn Belsky. They both graduated from Iowa School for the Deaf. ! MSD did us proud by winning a few games. They beat Ohio and Missouri but lost to Kansas, Indiana and a deaf school in Milton, Ontario. Some FAD members were on hand to volunteer for the event. ! A Gallaudet University Alumni event was planned for local GUAA members. Earl Jones was slated to receive honors as GU’s oldest living male alumni but wasn’t feeling well enough to attend. Everyone had a GREAT time!
