(Salem Adult Ministries, 55 or better)
On May 13, the Classics met at the Sycamore Forest Preserve for a bird walk. It turned out to be a great day both weather and educational wise. We learned so much about birds and binoculars, and we saw and heard many different kinds of birds along the Great Western Trail in their habitat.
On Friday, June 23, 2023, we will be headed to Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles, IL for a paddlewheel riverboat cruise on the Fox River at 1:30 in the afternoon. We will carpool from Salem parking lot leaving at 12:15 p.m. The cost of the cruise is $12 per person. Volunteer drivers will be needed for this event as well. This event is open to all members and is being sponsored by the Classics. Watch for a sign-up sheet in the church narthex in June.
It’s not too soon to make plans for our July event as well since advance ticket purchasing will need to be arranged. We will be going to the Stage Coach musical Bright Star on Saturday, July 15, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. Our own, Kathy Cain, is the stage manager for this production. This is another event open to all members that is being sponsored by the Classics. Event pricing will be available when we have a sign-up sheet in the church narthex starting in June.
Steve can be contacted at:
Phone: 815-761-4813, texting works best during daytime hours, or one can call after 5:00 P.M. That’s the most likely time I will be available to talk for more than a few seconds.
Thank you, and Peace be with everyone, Steven Latimer.
