We welcome you to our 50th Annual Itoo Shish-Ka-Bob . . .

fifty years ago it was Louis Kouri’s vision to hold a

Shish-Ka-Bob each summer to help raise money for the

Itoo Society. He wanted to keep the spirit of the Itoo Club

alive year round by offering more than only the Itoo Supper

in November. Lou held weekly meetings for months upon

end while carefully planning and organizing every detail

of that inaugural Itoo Shish-Ka-Bob.

For fifty years members of the Itoo Society have continued

the tradition that Lou began in 1968, and we continue to

welcome the greater Peoria community to our “home” as

we celebrate our heritage and continue the tradition so

many of our relatives helped to set in motion.

Today we would like to extend our appreciation to all the

dedicated men, ladies, children, and friends of the Itoo

Society who generously gave of their time, help, and

encouragement in preparation for today’s celebration.

We are proud and thankful to have such a wonderful

group that has continued the Itoo Shish-Ka-Bob and

makes it the great tradition that it is.

We also thank all of the individuals and business

establishments who have advertised in this year’s

souvenir program. We highly recommend and appreciate

you patronizing our sponsors!

In loving memory

As we celebrate our 50th Annual Shish-Ka-Bob as an

Itoo Society, we remember all those who have come

before us and helped pave the way to bring us where

we are today. This book is dedicated to all of the

deceased family members of the Itoo Society. Their

unselfish giving and their traditions that have been

handed down through the generations are the

backbone of our Club today.

Marilyn Joseph - who showed love to all

For Ed Mallow - how he loved

our Itoo family!

In Loving Memory of Ray Maroon

Jamil Couri (1958-2015)

Jamil loved the Shish-Ka-Bob, one of his

favorite Itoo events. He started the

previous Sunday by coring cabbage

with the crew, working when he

could during the week, and was

always there on “game day” to

help wherever he was needed.

Jamil always had his calm demeanor,

no matter how crazy the day got,

and always his beautiful smile.

We miss you, Jamil.
