Chet's Retirement Party

$2,815 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 31 months
Chet Utterback has been a faithful employee or the University of Illinois's Poultry Farm for nearly 30 years.  He will be retiring at the end of November, and I think he deserves a party.  Not only for his work at the University but because of his efforts in teaching, outreach, and his open stance on farming.  Please help us throw him the party that he so greatly deserves.  Chet litterally knows EVERYBODY!  And, he doesn't really want anything done by the University.  I'm hoping to have a large room reserved with limited free drinks and snacks.  We can't aford this on our own, but he REALLY does deserve it, more than anyone I know.  Any amount will help.

Thanks!

Retirement party POSTPONED until further notice!

Chet broke his ankle very badly. We just found out Chet's 3rd surgery is now scheduled for Friday, and he'll be in the hospital all weekend.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but this can't be helped. I'll keep everyone updated when we set a new date. Please spread the word.

To say we'll miss Chet is an understatement! Hopefully we'll still get to have lunch from time to time...
