Valentine’s Lunch – Starved Rock S P Lodge – February 7th

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

Feb 2009 lunch
We had super weather with temperatures in the 50’s for the outing. Twenty people attended. Food was good. President Norm White and first mate, Sharon hosted the party and prepared the valentine treat bags. Some of us went out on the veranda to watch the eagles soaring over the Illinois River. Four couples went down to the locks on the river and to get a close up look at them. We observed about a dozen eagles, but they said there were over 200 of them fishing in the open water below the dam last week. This week the river ice has broken up and the eagles have spread out. There was also a barge moving upstream through the locks.

Traveler’s Rest Luncheon – Jan. 27th

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

We had 21 members attend the luncheon. The weather was good as well as the food. The six couples from Northern Illinois Unit that are staying at Travelers Rest, as well as the three couples who winter in the area, came to the outing. Our next Florida outing is the Sarasota Rally at the end of February. Some of us are just going to drive down for the day they have the Region 5 dinner. Rulene Aarup
