Fox Valley Chapter 2013 Events

We produce two formal meetings each year, and we have informal monthly meetings hosted by our Chapter President, Rod Herbig, on the second Saturday of every month.

The monthly meetings are held in a comfortable atmosphere where members can sit down and have a nice conversation with Rod. They are held in the back area of a nice restaurant, The Fox, located on Ogden Avenue, and Main Street in Lisle. Rod has reserved the time from 12:00 noon to 2:00pm.

In 2013, the second Saturdays in each month are January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, May 11, June 8, July 13, August 10, September 14, October 12, November 9, and December 14. This is a good opportunity to met Rod and ask questions about Fox Valley chapter or SAR activities. There is no need to call ahead, just drop by the Fox Restaurant, any time from noon to 2pm.

Photos and details on our events from 2003 to 2012 are available in the Photos & Events section.
