The theme of the workshop was “Play Ball!” and attendees were encouraged to wear their favorite team’s apparel. We had everything there from the Rockford Peaches to the Cubs, Sox, and teams outside Illinois. Lunch was catered by Babe’s Hot Dogs and featured “ballpark food.” Attendees were provided with bags courtesy of the Village of Shorewood, and items in the bags were provided by various vendors.
The Joliet Zonta Club was the hosting club for this event. “We get so many good ideas from this kind of sharing,” said Club President Pat Perrier. “We know we can count on our sister clubs to help us brainstorm new events, ways to make our clubs stand out, and unique ways to benefit our communities. Nobody has to reinvent the wheel – we just have to ask our other clubs.”
