If we have a large interest in attendees going to the Naval Training Center at Great Lakes for a graduation ceremony, we can charter a bus for the Friday morning event. This means you must drive to Great Lakes Friday am or stay a day earlier at the group hotel and take the bus. Regular reunion activities at the hotel begin Friday noon on Sept 19 and ends Sunday Sept. 21 at noon.
The banquet is on Sat. evening Sept 20th at 6:00 pm at the hotel banquet facilities - dress business casual for photos. We always are asking for unique raffle items such as nautical items like artwork, books or ship models.
The hotel has a shuttle for shopping and local trips up to five mile – not to O’Hare Airport. The area transit is called the Metra which is 1.5 miles from the hotel and you can ride the hotel shuttle there. The Metra can take you to downtown, or you can take Amtrak to Chicago, and take a Metra to Lisle to the reunion.
Chicago offers pro sports, museums, shopping and Navy Pier. Go on line for Chicago CVB, and Lisle tourist information at www: discoverdupage.com for DuPage County info. Local fun is Lisle is a quaint town of Naperville, outlet shopping nearby and regional mall at Oakbrook Shopping Center. Of military interest is Contigney Park for the 1st Division Army Museum. It is a great museum from WWI through Gulf War.
