    1. FREE Tour: A Trip to Granite City (RSVP Requested)
      10:00 am – 1:00 pm

      A TRIP TO GRANITE CITY

      Monday, June 17 at 10:00 AM

      Leaving from the IKEA parking lot, returning around 1:00 PM

      The tour is limited to the number of people who can fit in Doug Schneider’s car.  Please RSVP (accepts only) to Doug by clicking here:  ParadiseDouglas@gmail.com if you would like to go on the tour.

      This free Prime-Timer-only-tour will go over the McKinley Bridge, past the Salute to Steel, and explore some areas in Granite City, Illinois: the Silk Stocking District, an Army Camp, Route 66, and remnants of the company town it once was.  Granite City was founded in 1896 and named after the kitchenware manufactured there.  We will do some walking to see the Arts and Design District, an art deco library, and some of the efforts being made to counteract the nickname “Steel City”: live theater, vibrant bookstore, afternoon tea, urban gardening.  Lunch (on your own) will be “upscale comfort food” in a historic bank building.  We will also see an I-House, turned into a museum.

      Note from Eric:

      I decided on the Field Friend Membership ($25.00 online).  I then called and reserved my Happy Hour ticket.

      I attended the Happy Hour on Jan. 31.  Nice location, easy free parking at the back entrance.  The new building attached to the house is something to see.  They had a very nice spread of hors d’oeuvres (hot meatballs, slice salami, vegetable tray, assorted crackers, several dips, delicious deserts) plus wine, beer, soda… Also included was a guided tour of the Field House and full access to the museum.

      I can now go to the rest of the Happy Hours for Free (see remaining dates for this year below).

      Join me at the next History Happy Hour in the Field House Museum.  I’ll be in the elegant library with a glass of wine.
