Another June Gathering of “Local” Carolians in Chicago

St. Charles Preparatory School made its fourth “annual” trip to Chicago’s Wrigley Field on Friday, June 21st. Carolians who live within a general 150-mile radius of the Windy City’s area are invited to join members of the school’s administration and staff at an afternoon baseball game. This year the group enjoyed watching the Cubs take on the New York Mets from a “Wrigley Rooftop” location across Sheffield Avenue just down the first base line. Folks could watch the game from the building’s 4th floor rooftop stands or gather in the third floor air-conditioned lower floor bar area which provided an almost-uncontested view of the infield over the right field wall. Large screen TVs allowed folks to follow the action pitch-by-pitch relaxing at tables and booths. Guests were treated to an “open bar” of wine, beer and soft drinks and a delightful unlimited buffet stocked with grilled chicken breasts, Italian beef sandwiches, Chicago style hot dogs, grilled bratwurst, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, nachos, potato chips, pasta salad, fresh fruit, salad, ice cream bars and ice cream cups and assorted cookies and brownies. The weather was very pleasant…breezy and warm… making it very comfortable and enjoyable for all to visit with each other.

Next alumni trip is to Annapolis in September….
