(A6;7A>M'*D;;'9F'[DI7'A9'"?<LMA'-;DCC'9F'2345 On Friday, March 1, some of the Missouri Athletic Club’s most distinguished athletic figures will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame. A dinner will be held in their honor in the Missouri Room. The Hall of Fame Committee reviewed nominations from MAC members and recently selected the 2013 class of inductees. Bob Gronemeyer is being inducted for handball. Gronemeyer competed in the sport over three decades and won several doubles championships. Tom O’Toole Jr. is entering the Hall of Fame for golf. The United States Golf Association Vice President has been instrumental in growing the sport at the Club. Tom O’Toole Sr. is entering the Hall for Distinguished Service. He played a key role in the acquisition of the West Clubhouse, while serving on the Board. The induction of the O’Tooles will mark the first time that a father and son have entered the MAC Hall of Fame. Brian Rodgers will enter the MAC Hall for basketball. He has been a key member on the MAC traveling team and has been on several March Madness championship teams. An outstanding 3-point shooter, Rodgers has received the Bill Daake Award in recognition of outstanding sportsmanship. D. Scot Hunsaker will receive the “Dan Barks Award.” Named for the long-time MAC Athletic Director, the award honors an individual who participated in sports in the Club as a child, and has gone on to make a mark on athletics as an adult. Hunsaker is the president of Counsilman-Hunsaker where he has been involved with the planning and design of more than 850 pools around the world, including at the Olympic Games.

Now that the New Year is here, it’s time to make your fitness and weight loss resolutions! If you are not seeing results or are starting to hit a wall, a personal trainer may help give you that extra push. Gil Clagget is a personal trainer at the West Clubhouse. He has been a part of the MAC team for 16 years and has worked 20 years as a personal trainer. Gil is an American Council on Exercise (A.C.E.) certified personal trainer. If you need help boosting your fitness routine, set up an appointment with Gil; he works with a wide range of clients from teens to senior citizens. Working with a trainer will help get you on the right path. “When working with a trainer you learn how to exercise safely and more efficiently,” Gil said. “Many times people will quit because of injury or lack of results, but I will help you get back on track and help you achieve your goals.” One way Gil motivates his clients to reach their goals is by learning what makes them “tick.” He says motivation is both inward and outward. “It is called ‘personal’ training because each person is different,” Gil said. “Motivation is different for everyone, and I have to find out who my client in order to figure out what pushes them.” In the end, he hopes his clients feel better physically and mentally. He says the more you keep exercising, the better you feel. Gil gets great satisfaction out of seeing his clients reach their goals. “All the trainers at the MAC want to help members achieve their fitness goals,” Gil said. “So let us help you.” If you are interested in setting up an appointment, you can contact Gil at 314-539-7454.

Tradition is rich at the MAC, and although some events have faded in and out of popularity, others have not; the Good Fellowship Day Party is one that endures. On Saturday, Feb. 23, the MAC will host its annual Good Fellowship Day Party, a tradition that members have been gathering for since the 1930s. To this day, athletes are the focal point of the Good Fellowship Day Party. As tradition calls, athletes and spectators still gather for a rewarding buffet of meats, salads and hors d’oeuvres, along with cold beer after the athletic events are over. Outside of the camaraderie, the best part of Good Fellowship Day is that it’s free! If you are a new member or have never come out for this celebration before, don’t miss out! The MAC encourages you to attend and participate, no matter what your fitness level is. If you have any questions, contact Rick Schneider at 314-539-4434 or Jeff Tuhro at 314539-4485.

From the General Manager Manager!s !!s Desk 8D;;P'#I>A6

Dear MAC Members: First, a big thank you to all who took the time to complete our survey. As I began this update, I referred back to the survey for some information, and then found an hour had passed as I got caught up reading all of the great comments and suggestions. The survey is laced with terrific ideas, along with honest input as to where we need to focus efforts for improvements and a better member experience. The survey was also a very valuable tool as we compiled our capital and operational plans, for this year and beyond. As most of you know the “Bright Lights Gala and Auction” is on Saturday, Jan. 26. I’ve heard stories about the first Gala in 2011 and all the fun that was had, how much money was raised and how it was then put to use. It was a smashing success! Saturday, Jan. 26, promises to be another grand success, and sell out, so call Stephanie today at 314-5394470 and let her know you will be joining the party. I’ve seen the list of auction items and there are great values to be had. I’ve also stuck my nose into the format of the

event, and promise it will be the party to remember. We have both Chef Bart and Chef Grant collaborating on a “stations” walkabout culinary discovery event like you have never seen at the MAC. Joe and Darrin have teamed up on the service plan, with catering, and everywhere you wander you will find something wonderful. In the end though, the best part will be mixing and mingling with all your fellow MAC members and guests. And, speaking of guests, this will be a night to show off your Downtown Clubhouse to friends and associates who enjoy fun, great food and spirit. Bring your soon to be Platinum Partner, and start the year off with some MAC fun and elegance. The funds raised through the auctions will be put right back into the Club via, “What you told us on the survey.” We have all new fitness equipment scheduled for March, new pool furniture and accompaniments outside around May and some dollars targeted for discovery in regard to our dining and bar operations, all at our West Clubhouse. Please join us on Jan. 26.

And, don’t forget that January is “Meet me at the MAC” month, where everyone is going to have just one more lunch, dinner, event, lesson or workout at the Club, with a guest of your choosing. The MAC is on the move, and our Platinum Partnership Membership program has been “simplified and energized.” Let us tell you how it really works, and the awesome value we’ve created for you and your Platinum Partner. Let me conclude with huge thank you from your entire staff. The generosity that was shown through your giving to the employee holiday and foundation fund request was phenomenal. Actually that’s Phenomenal with a capital P. All of our employees enjoyed a significantly larger holiday check this year and we thank you very, very much! Happy New Year to all. See you at the Club, Wally

Twenty years after Mia Hamm first visited the Missouri Athletic Club to receive the Collegiate Soccer Player of the Year Award, the most famous soccer player in U.S. soccer history is returning to the Club as the featured speaker of the Hermann Trophy Banquet. Find out who will win college soccerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the Heisman Trophy, and see Mia Hamm! On Friday, Jan. 11, the MAC will present the crystal soccer ball trophy to the top male and female collegiate soccer players in the country. The trophy represents the highest individual achievement in the sport. In addition to two-time MAC Hermann winner Mia Hamm, the jerseys of all the past winners, like Kristine Lilly, Claudio Reyna and Alexi Lalas, are on permanent display in the Sportsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club. The event kicks off with a press conference, where the finalists are introduced and the winners are announced. Following cocktails and a fabulous dinner, master of ceremonies Bill McDermott will treat soccer fans to a memorable evening at the MAC. The banquet will sell out quickly, so make reservations now.

SANTA CLAUS SPOTTED

The Downtown and West Clubhouses were filled with festive decorations, holiday cheer and lots and lots of excited children when Santa visited this year. Santa was so impressed with how good everyone had been all year, he visited the Club four times to hear MAC childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish lists. While each child waited patiently to see Jolly Old St. Nick, there was plenty of delicious food, sweet treats, face painting and gingerbread houses to decorate. Santa stopped at the West Clubhouse to feast on a tasty dinner buffet. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a chance to rest because he was up early the next morning visiting the Downtown Clubhouse for breakfast. Santa wants to thank all of the girls and boys at the MAC.

Picture, if you can, the main dining room at the West Clubhouse being completely full. One-hundred ten reservations, and everyone showed up. As you can see, the lobby was packed with people having a good time. Besides the beverages, wait staff was there offering tuna tartar and beef Carpaccio already on spoons - A simple bite, and no need to hold on to a plate. When the dining room opened, it was set in formal fashion and everyone quickly found his or her seats. A menu was already at every seat, showing the nights three course menu, - an opening lobster salad, followed by filet mignon with mashed potatoes and veggies and, finally, bananas foster complete with a spectacular flambé display. Chef Grant and staff did an incredible job. Every course was served with flourish and the food was magnificently prepared. How is it possible to serve 110 filet mignons, each just past medium, and soft enough to easily be cut with a butter knife? The dessert, though, was the crowning glory. Chef set up an outside flambé station, which was clearly visible through the dining room windows; when it came time, his team was outside performing the ‘table-side’ flaming of the brandy sauce, for all to see at once. After dinner, Darren brought in all the kitchen staff and the wait staff for a well-deserved round of applause, and introductions. He even remembered to introduce the harpist who had played throughout dinner. As is the function of a typically nosy governor, I went around the room both during and after the meal to get reactions from the diners - Almost all from Forever Young, which was behind the idea of a meet-the-Chef night. Not one negative comment, and loud praise for everyone involved. Members were talking about coming back for the occasional dinner, and all were looking forward to what the Forever Young Club said would be a hoped-for quarterly event like this one. A good time was had by all? No, a great time. There are now 110 people out there talking about how great the event was. It will be interesting to see how we top it next time. ~Governor John Salter

Academic success can be achieved by any child, if they have the right skills. With a new semester starting, now is the perfect time to make sure your child is on track for success in school. As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. When parents and families are involved in their children’s schools, the children do better, and have better feelings about going to school. In fact, many studies show that what the family does is more important to a child’s school success than how much money the family makes or how much education the parents have. There are many ways that parents can support their children’s learning at home, and throughout the school year. Here are some ideas to get you started! Check out the list of key skills to helping your child achieve academic success. This list comes from colorincolorado.org. Partner with Your Child’s School Meet your child’s teacher. As soon as the school year starts, try to find a way to meet your child’s teacher, and that you want to be contacted in case there are problems or successes with your child at school. Get to know who’s who at your child’s school. There are many people at your child’s school who are there to help your child learn, grow socially, emotionally and navigate the school environment. Attend parent-teacher conferences, and keep in touch with your child’s teacher. Stay connected with your child’s teacher throughout the school year. Schools usually have one or two parent-teacher conferences each year. You can also ask to meet with your child’s teacher any time during the year. If schedules don’t permit meeting face-to-face, set up a time to talk over the phone or on a video chat. Support Your Child Academically Find out how your child is doing. Ask the teacher how well your child is doing in class compared to other students. If your child is not

Make sure that your child gets homework done. Let your child know that you think education is important, and that homework needs to be done each day. You can help your child with homework by setting aside a special place to study, establishing a regular time for homework, and removing distractions such as the television and social phone calls during homework time. Find homework help for your child if needed. If it is difficult for you to help your child with homework or school projects, see if you can find a tutor or someone else who can help. Help your child prepare for tests. Tests play an important role in determining a student’s grade.

Learn what the school offers. Read the information the school sends home. Talk to other parents to find out what programs the school offers. Maybe there’s a music program, after-school activity, sports team, or tutoring program that your child would enjoy. Remember to keep track of events throughout the school year.

MICDS Middle School students enjoy the interactive learning aspects of the Science curriculum.

Volunteer at your child’s school and/or join your school’s parent-teacher group. Teachers appreciate it when parents help out at the school! There are many ways you can contribute. You can volunteer in your child’s class, or in the school library.

Support Your Child’s Learning At Home Showing our children that we both value education, and use it in our daily lives, provides them with powerful models and contributes greatly to their success in school.

Get Informed And Be An Advocate For Your Child

Monitor your child’s television, video game, and Internet use.

Ask questions. If something concerns you about your child’s learning or behavior, ask the teacher or principal about it, and seek their advice.

Encourage your child to read.

Let the school know your concerns.

Talk with your child. It’s through hearing parents and family members talk, and through responding to that talk, that young children begin to pick up the language skills that they will need to be successful.

Encourage your child to use the library. Libraries are places of learning and discovery for everyone. Helping your child find out about libraries will set him on the road to being an independent learner. Encourage your child to be responsible and work independently. Taking responsibility and working independently are important qualities for school success. Encourage active learning. Children need active learning as well as quiet learning, such as reading and doing homework. Active learning involves asking and answering questions, solving problems and exploring interests.


Each year, the St. Louis Rams team up with the St. Louis Food Bank to host the Taste of the NFL dinner. MAC Chef Bart Phillips, along with 17 other restaurateurs, the Boy Scouts and players from the St. Louis Rams were on hand to help raise money and donations for the St. Louis Food Bank, the largest nonprofit of its kind in St. Louis. The organization provides food and supplies for shelters and churches that feed the under-privileged in the St. Louis area.

The Apollos have been an institution at the MAC since 1943. The Harvard Dictionary of Music credits the MAC Apollos as the “oldest continuing mens’ singing group in the general community.” There are few occasions at the MAC with such a rich family tradition or history as the Apollos. There are two families with multiple generations who are Apollos members: Tom Applewhite and his grandfather Don Krieg are proud Apollos, as are father and son duo Ed and David Smith. The Apollos are always ready for new members to join them, as they carry on this great MAC legacy. To learn more about the Apollos, call Don Costello at 314-802-0462.

The Charitable Society for Children recently selected three new charities for 2013. After hearing presentations from MAC members representing nine local charities, the CSC narrowed their list to the top three and presented it to the MAC Board of Governors for approval. The Charitable Society is proud to announce the following charities as 2013 beneficiaries: Boys Hope Girls Hope, College Bound and Voices for Children. Boys Hope Girls Hope provides academically capable and motivated children-in-need value-centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college. College Bound provides promising students from under-resourced backgrounds with the academic enrichment, social supports and life skills needed to succeed in college and careers. Voices for Children advocates for abused and neglected children and youth in St. Louis by representing their best interests in court and in the community. Throughout 2013, the Charitable Society for Children will raise funds that will be split among the three charities. This past year the Charitable Society for Children raised more than $22,000 through donations from MAC members and employees. Each year, MAC employees can elect to contribute a portion of their paychecks to the MAC CSC. A total of $2,500 was donated by the employees. The three 2012 charities - Our Little Haven, Southside Early Childhood Center and Walker Scottish Rite Clinic will all be presented with checks from this year’s donations. The CSC would like to thank all of the members and employees who contributed.

25 Years

of Female Members

In 1988, by an overwhelming majority, members of the Missouri Athletic Club voted to allow women to join the then-85-year-old institution. On Sept. 15, 1988, the Board of Governors certified a vote count, 2,768 to 835 (a 77 percent majority), to amend the By-laws and allow female members to join the Club. Then-president William J. Conway wrote the following in his Cherry Diamond column: “Thanks to all of you who exercised your right to vote. With almost 80 percent of your voting, this was a truly remarkable response to this important issue… The vote results are a clear signal from the membership, and I would first like to commend them for making this decision, especially in light of recent U.S. Supreme Court

action. The Board must now go to work and adopt new By-Laws that will establish membership guidelines for the wives and daughters of members, widows of former members and female applicants.” Currently, there are two female Board Members, Mary Frontczak and Judith Hanses, and it is the first time two female Board members have served in the same class. All together, there have been four females who have served on the Board of Governors. The Women’s Initiative Committee was established in 2009 as an avenue to promote the progress of the MAC in regard to women, and to help recruit female members. The Women’s Initiative Committee is coordinating the second Women of Distinction luncheon, on Friday, April 19, at the Downtown Clubhouse. One of the first female members, Jackie JoynerKersee, will be the keynote speaker. Because of the high level of interest for the first Women of Distinction luncheon, early reservations are advised for this event. Call 314-539-4470 to make reservations. The Club will also honor women at Club-sponsored events throughout 2013 to commemorate this historic anniversary. Come and be a part of this year’s celebrations at the Missouri Athletic Club!

Dear MAC Member, As we turn the page on another fantastic year at the MAC, it seems a fitting time to reflect on the positive progress that took place this year, acknowledge our goals for improvement and discuss our plan for going forward. This past year brought about much positive change: A comprehensive survey of the members, undertaken by General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Wally Smith and his staff, helped set the stage for a formal Long Range Planning Committee, the first of its kind in recent Club history. With representation across key levels of MAC membership and management, this committee, using the newly-established capital budget, will help to prioritize the capital improvement wishes of our members. Our goal is to remain diligent in addressing our Club’s infrastructure needs, and membership expectations, to ensure the MAC remains an important part of your lives and an attractive, competitive option for potential members. Key staff and programming initiatives have already had a major impact on the Club’s day-to-day operations, beginning with the hiring of Skip Bowders as Facilities Manager. Skip’s 15-year career in overseeing major short-term and long-term development projects, in both the hospitality and corporate facilities industries, make him an important lynchpin in our five-year improvement plan. His fresh eyes will be a welcomed benefit to our strategic plan. Additional key hires include Chef Grant Higgs, Racquetball Director Dave Schwent, Director of Rooms Zach Freeman and Tennis Director Kenny Powell. Individually, each contributes their unique area of expertise, and together,

. % # " 0 , # # m Q & $ [ , # # " $ 0 ( + = " & , ) $ & 1 28

they improve the membership experience at our Club as a whole, reaffirming its place as one of the premier private clubs in the St. Louis area. But even the best staff cannot succeed unless given the optimal environment and tools to do their jobs well. As such, the Long Range Planning Committee has prioritized the needs identified in the member survey and will focus on addressing those needs in the coming year, including cosmetic updates in the Stan Musial Grill and bar area at West, and several structural repairs Downtown - including the leaks in the light well, roof structures, and basement. Improved security and in-room Wi-Fi services were also identified as important needs to our Downtown Clubhouse. Critical to accomplishing these goals is the ongoing raising of funds earmarked for the capital budget, something we hope to accomplish at our biennial gala on Jan. 26. In 2011, the event raised $100,000, and our goal is to exceed that amount this year. The funds raised will benefit the projects identified on our five-year plan, including improvements mentioned above, both Downtown and at West. None of this would be possible without the spirited and capable collaboration of our Club’s Management Team and Department heads, whose hard work on behalf of our Club and its members, make it the wonderful place we know and love. We look forward to another great year and take seriously our commitment to make life at the MAC the best it can be, for our members and their families. Christopher Michalak Long Range Planning Committee Chairman

Susan Kaye (Cebulske) Rogers is inspired and motivated by her fellow artists and enjoys studying the old and current Masters. Basically self-taught, she has been an active painter for over 25 years. Her art reflects a love for landscapes. Susan is concerned with green issues, and hopes to preserve open spaces through her interpretations of it - Susan creates most of her work plein air (in open air) where nature is the instructor. Susan has participated in many juried shows where she has won numerous awards. Most recently, “Best of Category” at the Midwest Salute to the Arts, in August of 2010. She is a member of the Illinois Artisans, Gateway East Artists Guild, the Pastel Society of America and co-founder and member of the Gateway Pastel Artists in Saint Louis. She continues to participate in many of the fine art events and is represented by the Illinois Artistisans Gallery in Whittington, Ill. Her work can be found in many homes and businesses in Illinois, Missouri and many other states. Susan and her husband Craig live in West Belleville, Ill., where she maintains her studio.
