Year in Review – Annual member slide show and party
The December meeting is when we celebrate the end of the year. President and scientific advisor Patrick Leacock will give a short overview of the interesting mushrooms found this year on the forays as well as highlights from the NAMA foray.
Members may bring photos on a flash drive. Please limit photos to your best 10 for the year. We will have a laptop and projector.
Bring goodies to share, too!
Membership dues for 2018 can be paid at the meeting.
Niles Historical & Cultural Center is about a tenth of a mile Southeast from the Golf-Mill Shopping center. The former sheriff’s office has parking behind the building. The meeting room is on the third floor and is accessible by elevator as well as a large staircase. Restrooms are available on first and third floors. A museum volunteer will open the building for us this evening. For public transport from the city, take the Blue Line to the Jefferson Park CTA Station, from there it is 20 minutes on the PACE #270 bus to Milwaukee and Elizabeth. The museum is open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
MUSEUM TOUR: Come early for a narrated tour of the museum. The tour will begin at 6:30pm; 1 hour before our IMA meetings on all of the days we have meetings there. So, if you cannot make the tour for the next meeting, maybe you can make it for a later IMA meeting date. No worries, if you get there a little late, we will direct you to where the tour has progressed. The tour is FREE. Niles Historical and Cultural Center is a 501 (C3) non-profit, any small donations are gladly accepted. You will not be disappointed you came a little early to make time for the tour.
