Most people have heard the song “Sweet Home Chicago”, but few know how “sweet” Chicago really is. Chicago has been called the “Candy Capital of the World” since the turn of the century. You likely have enjoyed plenty of
candy throughout your life, and who doesn’t enjoy a nice box of chocolates every once in awhile.

Join us on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. for a sweet deal that includes a complimentary lunch as noted historian, Tim Wilsey, shares his presentation “Chicago: The Candy Capital of the World.”

You’ll learn about the many Chicago area companies that have satisfied the sweet tooth of countless candy connoisseurs for well over 100 years.

Seating is limited so please RSVP by November 24th by calling (630) 243-3479.

Christmas Around the World

Time: December 4 @ 2:00 pm

Venue: Franciscan Village

1270 Village Dr
Lemont,IL60439United States

Phone: 630-243-3479

Many Americans celebrate the birth of Christ at church on Christmas, and decorate the outside of their homes with lights and the inside with a tree. They offer gifts to loved ones, they hang stockings and they leave cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas Eve. But how is Christmas celebrated elsewhere around the world?

Join historian and musician Tim Wilsey for this interesting presentation about different Christmas customs, the origin of Christmas traditions and share in the Christmas season. You may learn about shoes under the Christmas tree in France, a bonfire made of thorn bushes in Iran, Santa in a blue rather than red suit in South Korea, the origins of  poinsettia plants and much more!

Join us for light refreshments on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 2 p.m.
