Summer:

July 14, 2016, Movie Night:

Members and their guests gathered at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum  for a screening of Churchill’s secret.  2016 Churchill Essay Contest winner, Chloe Bartholomew read her essay and was presented with a $500. first prize.

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.
