1995 Midwest Regional Conference
Spice and Family Activities
Chicago is a great place to visit, with lots of things
to do in and around the city. Why not bring your family along for
the weekend? There are lots of things to keep them entertained on
Saturday, and you can join them Sunday afternoon, before heading
back home. You'll find parkland and beaches along miles of the
lakefront, world class museums, as well as a wide variety of
entertainment and dining experiences.
In the Oak Brook area, you'll find a variety of attractions,
ranging from the Morton Arboretum to the first-rate Oak
Brook Shopping Center.

The Regional conference is being held just West of the city,
conveniently located near the Eisenhower Expressway (Interstate
290, which goes directly East into the city) and the Tristate
Tollway (Interstate 294, essentially a "beltway"
going North and South around much of the city).
Chicago is warm in August, often with a cooling breeze from
the lake. T-shirt and shorts weather; don't forget to bring a
comfortable pair of shoes.
Please excuse us, since Spice has
become an APCUG in joke as the plural of Spouse.
