On December 4, 2021 we gathered at Gibson's in Oakbrook, a lovely restaurant, for a terrific 3 course lunch.

But the main delight was finally to have a face to face meeting in person. Nice free floating conversations, working our way around the floor in a private room.

And this was a great opportunity to share with each other some of our favorite travel photos and stories. We love these collaborative talks with photos we sent to Jim Franch who assembled our 35 slides.

And David Waring was finally able to receive his membership certificate.
