New National Churchill Library and Center project receives local chapter and matching donations. Is your chapter next?

Library-and-CenterThe Churchill Centre’s Chicagoland Chapter recently made a contribution to the new National Churchill Library and Center fundraising effort in the name of a longstanding member of their chapter.

A donation was made personally by chapter Co-Presidents Phil and Sue Larson and matched in-kind by the local chapter.

The generous donation was made in the name of “Miss Kitty” Kathleen Fairchild, who died last month at the age of 91. She was a World War II British Navy veteran and longtime resident of Oak Park; a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. She had the distinct pleasure of hearing Winston Churchill speak in person on several occasions and she frequently attended local chapter events.
