Hi Maureen,

As usual I am a "day late and a dollar short" but wow, what a great time we
had on the 22nd. Will put you in charge for anything - the weather as you
stated was just perfect. I am just amazed and awed at all the knowledge some
of you have. I just try and absorb a portion of it. I learn so much - now if
I can only remember half of it <grin> So, thank you so much.

We had a really nice lunch in the outdoor courtyard restaurant in the Art
Institute; the weather was just perfect - sunny, warm, and a slight breeze.

Eight of us were present, Nan Brennan, Kay Brennan Mammoser, Jack Clerkin,
Joyce Hennessy, Judie Mason, Patti Meyers, Maureen Neidle, and Kathleen
Richmond. We had a great time with great conversation and some good ideas.
We all
talked for at least 2 1/2 hours - and didn't run out of things to say.

We talked about ideas for "field trips" and future lunches. Our next lunch

is tentatively scheduled for a Sunday in October at the Irish American
Heritage Center on the North Side of Chicago - with "vittles" and a tour.
Jack is
checking with Brian there about an availability date. I will advise more
when we have the information.

We also discussed other field trips in the future. Some mentioned were the

Newberry Library, St. James of the Sag (and the cemetery) in Lemont
(southwest of Chicago), and the Chicago Historical Museum (formerly the
Historical Society). I have a Word document with the website addresses and
little info about each location. If you would like a copy of this
please let me know OFFLIST and I will attach the document in a return email
to you.

We will give you more info about the next lunch when we have a definite
