The Northern Illinois Parents Club hosted a Chicago Night on April 12th at the Air Force Academy. Enjoy the photos of cadets and parents enjoying all things Chicago. Go Hawks!
Founders Day Dinner 2014 was a huge success! Thanks to all of our sponsors for making it a possibility. The dinner was held at the Pritzker Military Museum and Library. We started with a cocktail hour in the beautiful library with a great panorama of Millenium Park and the Art Institute to enjoy with our drinks. The "hour" was more like an hour and a half which was perfect for a group of grads and Academy supporters that hadn't come together for a long time and had the opportunity to renew some old connections and make some new ones.
We then moved into the second floor gallery for our seated dinner. The cadets of AFROTC Detachment 195 at Illinois Institute of Technology posted the colors and Brett Lucas '97 led us in our invocation. The catering from Blue Plate was outstanding. We then screened the preview version of "A Year in the Blue." We ended with remarks from the Superintendent, Maj Gen Johnson, and a great question and answer session.
It was a great night and hopefully the genesis of many more great Chicago AOG events to come. See you at the next event. Go Blue!
