We hope you will join us as we travel to Chicago's Mercury Theater on Saturday, December 8th! This is a fantastic opportunity to see the beauty of the city at Christmastime as we walk the Christkindlmart and see the heartwarming tale of the Christmas Schooner!

Tickets are $100 for members and $110 for non-members. The bus company is holding our place but the theater company needs to hear from us as soon as possible! Call 563-322-8844 today to reserve your spot! We look forward to hearing from you and spending this wonderful day in your company,



THE CHRISTMAS SCHOONER is based on a beloved Chicago story. The 'Rouse Simmons', a Great Lakes schooner, was known as "The Christmas Tree Ship." Its captain risked life and limb to transport fir trees from Michigan's Upper Peninsula to Chicago's German immigrants during the late 19th century. A timely and stirring tale of love and loss, The Christmas Schooner reminds us of tradition, and our responsibility to celebrate the living while honoring our heritage.
