Chicago is the destination of choice for Midwest pages this summer!  The USCPAA invites you to join us on Saturday, June 28 at the Pritzker Military Museum and Library, 104 S. Michigan Avenue,  starting at 12 noon.

Scott Stantis, Editorial Cartoonist with the Chicago Tribune, is our featured speaker.  Scott’s editorial cartoons are syndicated to more than 400 newspapers around the world, and have been featured in such varied publications as  Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Guns & Ammo and “Nightline.”  His comic strip, “Prickly City,” was launched in 2004 and appears in more than 120 newspapers.

The event includes socializing, lunch and viewing the just-released page TV documentary,”Democracy’s Messengers.”  Pages of every vintage will enjoy the documentary’s look at Capitol Hill’s historic page tradition, narrated by Cokie Roberts and with interviews of Bill Gates (House ‘72) and Jonathan Turley (House ‘78), noted constitutional scholar and frequent TV contributor.  Our group will also have a private, guided tour of the museum, featuring its new exhibit, “SEAL: Unspoken Sacrifice.”

The Pritzker is a popular destination for every student of history, not just military buffs.  It is across the street from the Art Institute and Millenium Park (home of the “bean”), just blocks from the lake and a short ride to Chicago’s museum campus, which includes Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium and the Field Museum of Natural History.  Since the kids are on summer vacation, bring the entire family for a Chicago weekend!

Tickets are $40 per person, which includes admission, lunch and the tour.   Spouses, significant others families and guests are welcome.  Public parking garages are located nearby.  A sponsorship level ticket of $200 per person includes one ticket to the event as well as recognition of your sponsorship and documentation for tax purposes.

Make your reservation by June 22.  Questions, contact hosts Ellen McConnell Blakeman (Senate ‘72), lnblakem@gmail.com or Alan Rose (House ‘72),  alan@arose&associates.com.
