2011 - 2012

Date:  The party was originally scheduled for September 9, but was rescheduled to September 30 due to weather.  The shortened 5:30 - 7:00pm time worked well.

Food:  The Best Windy City Hot Dogs in LaGrange Park.  Rick is the contact and he was very easy to work with, even with the date change.  They set up 2 food lines so people were able to move through the lines quickly.  Food was reasonably priced - we told Rick we were shooting for a sandwich, chips and drink for $5 - 7; he charged $3.25.

Rick brought 150 bags of chips and 400 hotdogs.  We ran out of chips, so that should be increased next year.

Games / Activities: Owl Tattoos and Sidewalk Chalk


Attendance: We estimated about 400 meals, but due to rain and cold on the rescheduled date approximately 300 - 350 meals were served to around 150 people.

Tips for Next Year:
  • Having 2 tables set up to serve food was essential. 
  • One of the tables ran out of chips
