Chicago: Pie & the Sky

One-Day Motorcoach Trip
Depart & Return: LaGrange County Public Library
Saturday, August 3
Cost: $139 per person
It's a go!  There's still room on the bus, so you can still register via S&S Travel.

We’ll begin with the breathtaking views of up to four states from the Willis Tower. The tower opened in 1974, and the Skydeck attracts more than 1.7 million visitors annually. The Ledge dares us to stand on its glass balcony and experience the city from 103 stories (1,353 ft.) above Wacker Drive and the Chicago River. The Skydeck also features exhibits highlighting stories of Chicago’s history and culture, one of the fastest elevator rides in the world, and a theater presentation, Reaching for the Sky.   

Return to earth for lunch at Giordano’s! The Giordano’s story began in Torino, Italy, and moved to Chicago in 1974, where their Chicago Style Stuffed Pizza became world famous. Enjoy a slice of heaven in the shadow of the Willis Tower!  

Next, explore the universe at the Adler Planetarium, a public museum dedicated to the study of astronomy and astrophysics. It was founded in 1930 by Chicago business leader Max Adler and was the first planetarium in the United States. Explore the exhibits, and visit one of the domed theaters to hear the dramatic story of the search for Planet Nine.

Mehndi: Henna Body Art

LaGrange County Public Library
Saturday, August 17
2:00 p.m. 
Please call 260-463-2841 x1030 by August 10 to register.

One of our favorite presenters, Jen Shafer, returns with her beautiful artwork!   

 

Learn about the history, culture, and science of henna. Then choose a gorgeous design from one of Jen’s books.  Jen will apply it in minutes, and it will last for weeks (with proper skin care).  

 

This beautiful and relaxing experience makes a great mom’s day out or a special mother-daughter treat.  

 

Participants younger than 18 must either attend with a parent or have their parent sign a waiver at the library before the event.  

Children under 5 shouldn’t use henna.  (It’s not dangerous. They’re just too wiggly. Their henna paste smears, and then they're sad.)
