Late spring is here and summer is almost upon us. The flowers are blooming, the lawns need mowing, the evenings grow longer, the patio furniture comes out of storage, golf clubs get cleaned up, Chicago's neighborhood festivals begin, movies begin to be shown in Millennium park, Buckingham Fountain is roaring, the Chicago River bridges let boats pass, and the BBQ grill now gets fired up more often. And the bugs aren't out yet! What a great time to be in Chicago.
So other than burgers and brats on the BBQ, what's cookin' with you this spring? New job? New friends? New skills? New resolutions? Reconnecting with old friends? Trying something new? All of the above? This is a great season to deepen existing relationships, create new relationships, have new experiences, or just go out and have some fun.
SIM Chicago offers many opportunities to do all of those things, and even though our regular yearly program of events is nearing an end, there are still great events coming up this summer that you won't want to miss. The premier annual charity SIM Chicago CIO Golf Outing is upcoming, so mark your calendars. And don't forget the Summer Social at Ravinia. These are two fantastic and fun opportunities available to you through your SIM Membership that fall in the "all of the above" category. Other opportunities also abound in Chicago, so we hope that you take advantage of SIM's events as well as other Chicagoland events to keep what you have cookin' in your life spicy and interesting. I hope to see you all this summer!
