Hello FaithWorks Churches,

On behalf of our Council President, Pam Robers, you are invited to a special event. 

Please find the announcement below. Thank you!

Do you love Chicago, but hate the traffic?  Do you love parades but hate the traffic?  Do you love shopping but hate the traffic?  Well, I can give you all of that WITHOUT the traffic!

This is an invitation to our Faith Works partners, along with Grace & St. John’s churches in Kenosha, to join us on a one-day Lamers MotorCoach bus ride to Chicago for shopping and the Holiday parade down The Magnificent Mile with Mickey & Minnie Mouse as Grand Marshalls. The parade is followed by fireworks over the Chicago River!  What a way to start off the holiday season!
