Sat Aug 13th, 3rd Coast Charters Sailboat Lakefront Cruise  7:30-10:30pm;  We will set sail from Monroe harbor and embark on our journey to Chicago’s newest lakefront area called the Playpen II to set anchor and watch the fireworks night show from Navy pier with the city lights as the backdrop. After the fireworks show we will then sail until 10.30p and enjoy the views. The cost is $125, and we can bring our own food, drinks.

Thurs Sept 1, PSC General Meeting 7:00pm at Emmett’s.  Please RSVP on Meetup by the week before if you are planning to come to Emmett’s. This is to give the restaurant an idea of how many servers they will need and improve service.   Didn't get a chance to sign up for trips, you can do so at the meeting!


 Wed Sept 14, Bird Hike and Banding Event:  8:30am.  Here’s your opportunity to experience an actual bird in hand and to release back into the wild. We will observe master bird handlers weigh and examine various bird species in our area. Some of these will be migrating south for the winter. As the naturalists band the birds, they will share many pieces of information that are unique and interesting about each type of bird they handle. A great chance to see birds closer than you ever imagined. After the banding, hike with our local Camp Sagawau birding expert for 1-2 miles and see what we can spot off the trail. Bring your binoculars, (if you don’t own a pair, we will find you some) water, comfortable shoes, and dress for the weather. Questions? Contact: John O, email:  jfosullivan56@att.net    Sagawau Environmental Learning Center, 12545 W. 111th St., Lemont.


Thurs Sept 15, PSC General Meeting .

Sat, Sept 24 Dunn’s Backyard Oktoberfest 2022!   From 6:00-10:30 pm.  Breakout your lederhosen or dirndl attire for Backyard Oktoberfest 2022! Saturday, September 24th 6:00-10:30 pm.  This year Harry is once again leading a Piccadilly trip to Oktoberfest in Wisconsin on Saturday, September 17th, but for those who prefer to party closer to home (or want to partake of Oktoberfest for a second weekend) we are having a backyard Oktoberfest in Downers Grove. Cathie and Chris Dunn are the hosts. Bring your own beverage, food, chair, small table, etc. and dress for the weather since we will be outside. There will be Oktoberfest music, games, and fabulous prizes. If you would like to participate in the Oktoberfest Bier exchange, bring a 6 pack of cold beer and swap one of your beers for one of someone else’s (with their permission of course!) Please indicate in the comments section on Meetup what you would like to bring or let Harry know so we can avoid everyone bringing the same thing. This way, we can have a safe tasting without sharing open beverages. Light beer doesn’t count- if you prefer that you probably wouldn’t like sampling Oktoberfest Bier anyway. Limited to 50 people, sign up through Meet Up. The address will be provided to those who RSVP Yes on Meet Up and will be sent the day before. – Cathie & Chris Dunn
