Girls Night Out – August 23, 2011

A group of us had the best time on the 23rd of August. We got to help Marianne Swierczek Hawkins celebrate her retirement. As it happened, Marianne was in town (Bolingbrook) visiting relatives just after her official retirement. Six of us from around this area met Marianne at Francesca’s in Bolingbrook for a “Girls Night Out” dinner and LOTS of conversation. Those that attended were Sue Brown Bennett, Joan Challingsworth Goliak, Lynn Murphy, Patti Duffy Poirier, Cathy Riordan Full, Marianne and myself.


I took a couple of pictures, and our waiter was kind enough to take one that included the whole group. To see the pictures full size click on the link below. Several others took pictures that night, so when they send them to me I will add them to the album and let you all know what’s up. Marianne took the train from California to Chicago and promised to write up a little about her experiences. (Gotcha Marianne – no forgetting now!) She is completely enjoying her grandson and will be helping her son and his family move into a new house after she returns home.
