February 15th Luncheon – Houlihan’s – Geneva, IL

Monday, December 30th, 2013

On a very pleasant Saturday afternoon, 17 Airstream enthusiasts met at Houlihan’s Restaurant in St. Charles and had a wonderful time with great conversation and excellent food.  We met at noon in a private room that Dave Mayo arranged for us and stayed until 3:00PM.  This event could not have been nicer and we all enjoyed the food, ambience and Airstream conversation.
The event was attended by: Dave & Kathy Carlig, Charlene & Gene Gardner, Bob & Anita Koch, Jim & Marge Kraner,  Dave and Dolores Mayo, Bonnie Nester, Peter & Judy Schwartz, Guests Jerry McMunn & Caryl Purdue and Bob & Sandy Whitesell.
Thanks to all for coming and making this such a pleasant experience.  Bob Whitesell, President
