Vantage News - July 2012 Babies, Vacations and Fun 4th of July Facts
Join us as we celebrate with Maria Saravia on the birth of her 6th grandchild, Samuel Stastny. Maria was blessed to be a part of the delivery by supporting her daughter Ciara as she welcomed her 4th child. Samuel was born June 15th at 6:07 p.m. He weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 20 inches long and is one handsome addition to the family.
Sam Bakou and his wife Anita celebrated the baptism of their son, Isaac Emmanuel on July 8, 2012 at Carter Westminster Church in Skokie, IL.
Anne Yates attended the Women Advisors Forum in Chicago in June. Over 100 advisors were in attendance to discuss topics such as what women want from a financial advisor and how to successfully manage withdrawals in retirement. On a relaxing note, Anne just returned from a vacation in Dallas, TX to visit friends. The weather was 10 degrees cooler in Dallas than here in Chicago...hmmm, interesting!
