And what a wonderful year it turned out to be. Magnus Charitable Trust was joined by over half of its 2004 scholarship winners on a cruise of Lake Michigan aboard the Odyssey. Maria Magnus was hostess to not only the scholarship winners and mentors, but was also joined by Dr. Cleo Boswell of the Illinois Department of Education, Principal Beatrice Madaj of Pope John Paul II Catholic School and Father Gerry Grupczynski of Five Holy Martyrs Church. Brunch was served aboard this beautiful ship as it set sail out into the lake under blue skies. Everyone aboard had a great time getting to know each other, and relax while a speaker identified points of interest along the Chicago skyline. With a mellow jazz guitarist playing in the background, the afternoon was filled with fun, food and fellowship.
