One Day Tour- Crest Hill, IL.

An Ol' Fashioned Sunday Afternoon

The weather was so dismal that nobody brought out a classic T-Bird. But as always, it didn't dampen our spirits or appetites. We met at the Schweppes Restaurant Supply store, then we proceeded to the St. Joe's parking lot to see where the festivities would be held later on. We arrived early at Merichka's. The restaurant has been family owned since 1933. They are famous for their Poor-boy sandwiches, but the salads, beverages and other delights were also mighty fine. After lunch, filled with great food and fun conversation, we proceeded to the St. Joe's picnic ground for an old fashioned church picnic.

It was a day filled with live polka music, dancing, raffle booths, food and beverages. It was Len Vinyard's lucky day; he couldn't lose. He even tried sharing his hair dressing tips with the clergy!

We all turned out to be winners that day, and we all had a great time. Those members who attended are as follows: Rudy & Janet Budach, Bert & Jane Eisenhour, Maryann Graziano & Paul Ureche and guests, Joel Greenberg & Annie Luginbill, Bob & Helen Hoge, Len & Mary Keil, Dan Mrozek & Judy Butler, Ken & Kathy Smizinski, Len & Irene Vinyard, and Jim Wilson and son, James.

Thanks to Bob and Helen Hoge for planning such a fun-filled day. What started out as a gloomy, rainy day turned out in fact to be a day filled with wonderful food, music and dancing.
