BNFree Monthly Sunday Meeting

Please note: the location is new for us (the shelter at Fairview Park in Normal) and the date has been shifted to the 30th, the last Sunday of September.

Updated- directions: Although the park address is on Main Street, the shelter is a ways back from the road, on the west side. From Main, turn west on McKinley / Fairview Park Rd, which is just south of the water park. Follow the road just past the water park. The shelter is on the right, after the parking lot and playground.

Bring the whole family!  There is playground equipment nearby, as well as real restrooms.  If the weather is inclement, the shelter is large enough for the kids to play at one end while the adults socialize at the other.

Presentation: after business is conducted and our tummies are full, one of our new members, Ben, will be telling us about his experiences as a Jehovah's Witness.  This should be very interesting!

If you'd like the parameters of a food theme, let's go with Italian!  Otherwise, be a maverick and surprise us.  Note: since the shelter is nice and new there are undoubtedly electrical outlets for crock pots and such.

Please see our website to get a good idea of what our group wants to accomplish. We also have an active blog.

    My daughters and I had a great time. The food was good and the people were even better. This is a warm, open minded and welcoming group.

    My daughters made really yummy chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I didn't even help them since they are better at baking than I am :)

    I am not sure what else is needed. Should I just bring a dish that I think most people will enjoy? Are there any vegetarians in the group?

      There are vegetarians, but I don't know who they are offhand (or whether any of these RSVP's are). We usually try to plan in this space what we're bringing, but people often don't decide until the last few days.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
