A friendly reminder we will have a gathering on Saturday, 2023 September 23 at the Woodfire Pizza in West Dundee, IL at 4:00pm. We will be there from 4:00pm until the last of us decide to leave! Glenside has made an allowance to contribute to the bill.

If you come early, there are many types of shops and amenities in the area including a river walk, vintage/antique store, old-time candy store (with sugar-free options!), retro-arcade, and more. Below are some links to additional things for you or anyone coming into town.

We won’t have a place to set up technology at the restaurant, just time to enjoy the day together. If you’re in the area and/or traveling a distance the links below are some attractions and places to visit.

2023 Glenside Picnic coming in September!

We’ve have a date for our annual picnic and gathering. Everyone is welcome. Put this on your calendars! Saturday September 23, 2023

Upcoming picnic September 23, 2023

This year we will be meeting in West Dundee, IL. It’s a little further west of Schaumburg, IL and has a lot to offer.

Come early for a casual afternoon. Bring the whole family or grandkids!

For those of you in the Chicago area it is an easy drive. Those coming from further out will find it directly off I-90.

We will have informal gathering for those interested at the Underground Retrocade at 1pm (open noon-11pm, $20 cover unlimited game play with all day pass). Then we meet as a formal group at 4pm at the Woodfire Pizza for a meal with up to $20/person on us!

Look on the Glenside Facebook Page or here on our website for any updates. If you plan on attending we would love to hear from you to get a semblance of the size of the group. Email if you’d like to RSVP.
