Our Social Gathering is held on the third Thursday of each month at  the Knights of Columbus, 537 S. York St.,  Elmhurst, IL.   The doors open at 6:30pm with a short meeting at 7:00 followed by some kind of entertainment or speaker, and refreshments.  There is an entrance fee of $5.00 for members and guests.

 At each meeting there is a drawing of two names for free admission to a future Social Gathering. 

There is a reserved table(s) for newcomers (in addition to the reserved table for the New Direction Committee and guests) so that you can sit together with others who also don't know many of the members.  You get to know the members most easily by signing up for the various events that are attended by smaller groups of people.

This is a great way to meet people who have gone through the same life-changing event that you have.
