Maifest Luncheon a HUGE Success!


Maifest 2013

Approximately 450 people attended the annual 47th Ward senior luncheon last month.  It was a beautiful, sunny day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves as well as the delicious lunch prepared by the Dank Haus.

Our special entertainment this year was the Lakeview High School choir.  They sang both the oldies and contemporary songs for us while we dined.  Forty-seventh Ward Alderman Ameya Pawar and 5th District Congressman Mike Quigley spoke briefly to the crowd and thanked them for coming.

All in all it was a great way to celebrate our Ward’s Maifest celebration. The entire community is looking forward to next year’s luncheon.
