Society Saturday - a tour of Chicago

The National Board meeting of the Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America was held in Chicago this week.  Illinois Chapter President, Sheila Aszling, planned a very enjoyable 3 days for the visiting board members; even the weather cooperated.

The meeting began with a "meet and greet" at the hotel.  Ladies traveled from California, Florida, and Maine, as well as points in between.  They relaxed and socialized the first evening.

The second day was full of touring in Chicago.  Ladies (and a few men) boarded a bus for a guided tour of Chicago.   We are all gathered in the hotel lobby.

The tour guide was a retired history teacher and he was quite knowledgeable.  We spent a few hours at the Chicago History Museum, followed by lunch.  One of our stops was a Planetarium Point for a photo op.

Then back on the bus for a driving tour of Chicago and a walking tour of Millenium Park.

No trip to Millenium Park is complete without a picture in the "bean".

Day 3 consisted of the actual business meeting of the Board, followed by a farewell lunch.  All ladies went home tired, after another enjoyable October Board Meeting.  We are looking forward to seeing each other again at General Court in April.
