Hi Ladies !!!

Are you ready for a “walk-together” and lunch?

Why not join us at the next Ladies Only event on Saturday, August 20th at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL.  9am is our start time. We will park in the north parking lot (there are signs) and meet in front of the Visitor Center. We will spend a good 2 1/2 hours or more roaming and exploring the park. Afterwards, we will drive to Cooper’s Corner, 27 W 150 Roosevelt Road in Winfield for lunch.

This is more than a park.  It is a beautiful place with a variety of gardens that offer beauty and tranquility for all to enjoy and experience at your own pace . 

In addition to it’s wonderful gardens, you won’t  want to miss it’s First Division Museum.  Yes, I  know, a War Museum? Wait until you experience all that the First Division Museum has to offer!  You will be astonished at what you see and hear about World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. Oh, and did I mention the full size tanks from WWI—Desert Storm? Heck, if you really want to, you can even climb onto one of them!

Oh my!  There is a special event/exhibit! It is the Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World! The word alebrije—pronounced ah-leh-bree-heh—refers to imaginary creatures that possess elements from different animals. They originated from the vivid dreams of Mexican artist Pedro Linares. Some 48 alebrije sculptures—some taller and wider than an SUV–are on display! Most amazing, besides being extremely colorful and beautiful,  is that they are all made from…… PAPER MACHE!

Admission is free, but there is a $10 per car
parking fee
.

As always, please text me at 224-388-4072 if you would like to join our park and lunch event. I would like your response by August 13 so I can make the reservation with the restaurant.
