<![CDATA[On March 23rd, thirty-four individuals from Region 3 comprised of students, staff, parents, etc. headed to Chicago for the day. We travelled in style in Eastside’s big white bus which has more of the comfort features of charter buses. After departing Butler at 7 A.M., we arrived in the Windy City about four hours later. The group dispersed in every direction eager to see all that the city had to offer. Several groups feasted on three inch-thick pizza at Giordano’s, while others found delights at various food courts in town. Others munched their way on Garrett’s world famous Chicago blend popcorn…YUM! Some of the attractions that were visited by various groups were Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Water Tower, The Hershey Store, The Nike Store, Forever 21, the Museum of Science and Industry, etc. There were a few glitches with the time zone difference since everyone’s cell phone automatically switched to Central Time which made our pick-up time interesting. I do believe some members in our group set a land/speed record for distance travelled from the John Hancock Building to the Chicago River(our pick-up location), but no names will be mentioned, right? The day was a great success with lots of new sights, sounds, and tastes experienced by all. [gallery ids="2092,2093,2094,2095"]]]>
