Spotlight on Chapter – West Suburban Women’s Chapter in Woordridge, IL.
After meeting virtually since March, we put together an outing at a local forest preserve. Members (wearing masks) paired up to do one-on-ones during the hike. We switched partners a few times. It was great to see each other and reconnect! As we get closer to winter, we probably will not have this opportunity again, but we’re sure to think of another creative way to stay connected!
