we invite you to a special weekend dinner get together featuring my daughter, Jen, and my daughter-in-law, Kate, moving to the Midwest from Massachusetts to take teaching jobs at Miami of Ohio.
we will meet at Jen's choice, Popolano's in Chesterton http://www.popolanosrestaurant.com/ , with comfortable Italian classics, and a couple innovations, and have a friendly dinner.
many of you have met my younger daughter, Kim, but not as many have met Jen, because she went away to college just before i started this hiking group.
now she is back teaching college, and I'm eager for you to meet, or re-meet her and Kate, and for them to meet you. I hope many of my wonderful friends from Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and points beyond will be able to attend.
a note on accommodations: now that we seem to be turning into a tri-state group, spread over a couple hundred miles, i thought i should mention a word about where to stay if you'd like to turn a meetup into a weekend getaway.
