Big Ideas and the Rise of Chicago
Wednesday, January 15 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Members & guests–free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.
The Village Men’s Group invites all members for a lecture from Krista August on a transformative era of Chicago’s history. Over a period of just sixty years, frontier land of sand dunes and swamp was re-imagined into to a modern, cutting-edge metropolis — which also became the center of the whole world for six months of 1893! Chicago’s total transformation is examined in terms of remarkable ideas that were realized, and in spite of obstacles and setbacks along the way.
While the Men’s Group is typically only open to men who are Village members and their male guests, this month’s program is open to all members.
- Reservations required for all events.
- The Village aims to match participating members by request to Village events when other members who are attending the event are able to provide transportation. When registering, please let the Village office know if you are able to drive or would like a ride to an event.
