Kalo Foundation congratulates Priya Karkhanis (left), one of three Park
Ridge high school students who won the Youth Service Medal from Cook
County Sheriff Tom Dart in December. Priya was honored for her service
as a regular volunteer and weekend docent at Kao's Iannelli Studios
Heritage Center. Park Ridge Mayor David Schmidt (right) introduced the
winners at the Dec. 16 City Council meeting. The other recipients were
Ellen Longman and Georgia Loutrianakis. Ellen, whose grandparents Herb
and Barbara Zuegel are active in Kalo, was a volunteer this year at our
Arts and Carafes fundraiser.
We are very grateful to the many
teens and young adults who have contributed their talents to Kalo.
While Priya has been one of our longest regular helpers, we also truly
appreciate the many scouts who have helped us update the building and
grounds with their Eagle Scout projects, and groups of students from
local schools who take an interest in helping us share community

A Fantastic Donation!
Carol Schmidt has donated a reproduction concrete Sprite to the
Studios Heritage Center. The original Sprite from which it
cast was designed by Alfonso Iannelli for the Midway Gardens designed
by Frank L. Wright. Ms. Schmidt purchased it from Scott
of the Kelmscott Gallery in 1998. Scott had this sculpture
reproduced from an original Sprite. She is donating this
so that people visiting the Iannelli Studios Heritage Center can enjoy
seeing a full size, three dimensional likeness of the original design
by Alfonso Iannelli and appreciate the greatness of his talent.
a sidenote, Mr. Mike Grucza, who is restoring our Immaculata Madonna
sculpture, also restored the original sprite sculpture from which this
cast was made. He told us that there were only 4 or 5 of these sprites
We feel very fortunate to have received the donation of this sprite
from Ms. Schmidt.
