Glenside Club Meeting: Thursday November 18, 2021 @ 7:30PM Central

Our 29th Annual Chicago CoCoFEST! is, as they say, a wrap. I would like to thank everyone who set up exhibits, presented, attended in person, and watched our festivities online. It appears folks had a great time, though no doubt that’s primarily because it was a chance to catch up with others after so many months apart. The show, maybe, was just a means to an end :-). Regardless, it was a successful, productive, fruitful, and financially beneficial event.

All that said, it wiped me out, and I am thus late getting this notice out (I lost a week, it seems). Please join us tomorrow (Thursday, November 18th) evening on BlueJeans for a CoCoFEST! event recap, some attendance and financial statistics, and discussion as we begin planning for the 30th anniversary event (which comes in just 6 months, May 14/15, 2022.)

We will open the call early at 6:30PM as in previous months for some time to catch up and say hello to new faces.

We have a few business items on the agenda, though I am happy to add items of discussion interest.
