Fox Valley Chapter 2016 Events

We produce two formal meetings each year -- please mark your calendars for April 17th and a date to be determined in October, and we have informal monthly meetings hosted by our Chapter President, Mike Campagnolo, on the third Saturday of every month.

The monthly meetings are held in a comfortable atmosphere where members can sit down and have a nice conversation with Mike and other members. They will be held in three different locations this year, The Fox Restaurant in Lisle, The American Legion Post 187 in Elmhurst and the Messenger Library in North Aurora. The addresses, dates and times are given in our quarterly newsletters. These newsletters are sent via email to our members, and they are available on our website. Go to Newsletters & Archives.

The newsletters announce other events like patriot grave marking, geneological meetings, etc. Just click on Newsletters & Archives, select the most recent quarterly newsletter, and scroll down to see meeting announcements.

Another informal meeting is held in September at Cantigny in Winfield, IL. The exact date is not yet available. This is during the fantastic Revolutionary War Days -- from 10:00am to 4:00pm -- where reenactors in American and British uniforms camp and stage a Revoutionary War battle. This is an activity for the whole family and is not to be missed.

Photos and details on our events from 2003 to 2015 are available in the Photos & Events section.
