Annual Fall Kick-off Salad Supper, September 13, 2017 at 6:45 pm

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 6:45 pm

One of our favorites–the Salad Supper!  A time for sisters to bring their favorite salad and a special summer memory to share plus reconnect after the summer break.  Joan is our hostess, and Barbara is our co-hostess.

If you are new to Chicago North Shore Alumnae, no salad is necessary.  Just bring yourself and enjoy!  We’re all good sisters!                                                                                                                                               Click on “Contact Us” for directions or complete details on any of the programs.
