Tired of sitting at home (If you do)?

Never bored! I hike in the forest preserves with my dog, play (cello) in two orchestras and a quartet, attend library book and movie discussions, do tai chi. grow vegetables, and try to keep up with a big garden and too many houseplants.

What would you have the group do for a fun outing ?

Hike in the forest preserves (can I bring my dog?) or on the Illinois Prairie Path, go to a weird museum (lapidary art? Ukrainian culture? Oriental Institute? San Filippo estate?), have a potluck picnic, visit the eagle sanctuary in Savannah (IL), see a play at 16th Street Theater (in Berwyn) . . . I'll send more quirky suggestions when I think of them.

What would help make you feel more at ease when meeting new people?

Name tags I can read without my glasses!

Would you like to Host an event (It's easy!)? If so, contact the Organizer.

Lead an active life and would like to meet folks who are interesting and interested. Love classical music, the outdoors, animals, books, theater . . .
