2016 Spring Chicken Run
May 15, 2016 - 10:30 AM

Jana and I are hosting the Spring Chicken Rally/Tour this year and hope that you can attend. We hope that you are available to attend on Sunday, May 15.

We will begin the driver's meeting at 10:30 in the Deer Park Town Center shopping mall in Deer Park. It is located on the north-west corner of Route 12, Rand Road and Deer Park Blvd. We will congregate by the Starbucks parking area. For those who attended in the past, this is the same meeting place. We have planned another different drive that ends at our house in Ivanhoe. The drive will take approximately an hour and one-half, where we will meet for lunch. Our son Kirk will be preparing the chicken along with some BBQ pork in his new cooker/smoker.

We hope that you can join us and we also hope that we are blessed with the good weather that we had the last several years. Please let us know if you will be attending so that we can plan for enough food and drink.

As in the past, $7.00 per person will help defray some of the food cost. If you canít make the drive but wish to attend the lunch, let me know and I can provide directions to my house.

Phone is 847-566-5075 and e-mail is

We are looking forward to a fun drive and lunch!
