Central in Glencoe

Friday night Sept. 7. It's informal- with a casual appetizer buffet and cash bar; 7:30pm at Birchwood Club in Highland Park.

In order to help us get the final plans underway, (and make a firm commitment to the place for the room/food/drink) we would love it if you would send us a check or money order for $35/person to cover the cost. Drink tickets will be sold at the club (CASH ONLY). Send your money to Pam’s office: Pam Gross Laukkanen, 2929 Central, Evanston, IL 60201.

This helps us order the right amount of food and get the right size room. Please pay in advance. It will be $45 at the door (again, CASH ONLY!). If you have any questions please contact us on Facebook or through Jimmy Rubens.


Hackney's on Lake, 1514 Lake Ave, Glenview: 7:00 Friday the 7th.- Ask for the Skokie Jr High group downstairs. Cash bar and food available!! Contact Mark Standefer.
