CRETE | The Crete Woman's Club promotes enriching activities for its members and guests year-round.
Whether it is a trip to an exhibit at the Art Institute or a lecture from the National Strategy Forum at the Union League Club of Chicago, the club finds stimulating area cultural events.
At the Feb. 21 meeting, curator Geoffrey Bates will offer a slide presentation on The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park of Governors State University in University Park. The park showcases a major collection of 27 works that is set within the wild prairie swales of the GSU campus. The presentation will begin around 1 p.m. at Lincolnshire Country Club, 390 E. Richton Road in Crete. For more information visit the club’s website, cretewomansclub.org.
