EVENTS THROUGHOUT LAST YEAR

Spring:

May 12, 2017 – CSNO hosted our annual Wine, Wit, and Wisdom, during which members enjoyed refreshments, then took turns speaking about Churchill, often in relation to current events.  Our Essay Contest winner for 2017 received her award and read the winning essay.

Summer:

August 22, 2017,  Pol Roger Night:

Members and their guests gathered at Hoppers Wine  to enjoy Churchill’s favorite champagne, Pol Roger.  Board Member Walter Wolf spoke about the unusual relationship between Churchill and the Pol Roger label.  It is estimated that Churchill may have consumed a box car worth of Pol Roger in his lifetime.

Fall:

The Birthday Dinner,  a formal reception and dinner, was held on November 30 at the National WWII Museum.  After hearing songs from Gilbert and Sullivan presented by Loyola University students, professor and author Hal Klepak, spoke about his new book, Churchill Comes of Age, Cuba, 1895.   We think that the Great Man would have felt very much at home on this grand occasion.

Year Round:

Lectures are held as the opportunity arises.
