    • Southwest College Ave. Park and Ride, 1500 W College Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53221
    Join us for an evening of lovely music outdoors at Ravinia on Saturday, July 29. The Chicago Symphony will perform two pieces by Dvorak. Guest artist is world-renowned pianist Lang Lang, who will perform the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto Number 1.

    Meet at the I-94 College Avenue SOUTHWEST park and ride lot at 2:30pm. We'll carpool to downtown Highland Park, Illinois, which is holding its annual sidewalk sale. We will take the free shuttle bus to Ravinia. Buy your $10 ($8 if over age 65) lawn seat ticket (or a $25 pavilion ticket if available) there. Gates open at 4pm, and the performance starts at 7pm. July 29 is also the annual Ravinia Gala, so this is a prime opportunity to people watch.

    You may bring in food and drink (including alcohol) or purchase items at Ravinia. You may also want to bring food to share with our group, a lawn chair (or rent one there), side table, blanket, candles for ambiance…whatever you'd like. It's okay to take all these things on the shuttle. Please call Cindy at (414) 336-8695 to let her know you are coming.

    • Harrington Beach State Park, 531 Co Rd D, Belgium, WI 53004
    The annual Labor Day camping trip will be at Harrington Beach State Park this year. Only 35 miles north of Milwaukee off Highway 43 near Belgium, this park has one mile of scenic Lake Michigan shoreline to explore and short hiking trails within the park. The surrounding area has great kayaking, hiking, and biking opportunities. Come for all three nights, or just one or two. Vehicles must have an annual state park sticker or day pass. There is limited parking in the group camp area.

    The group campsite has drinking water and a pit toilet, and it’s a short walk to shower facilities in the family campground. Nightly campfires will be held. Camping trip cost is only $14 per person (non-members $15.50). Please make checks payable to NSCM and mail to Mary Mueller, 4862 N. Shoreland Ave., Milwaukee, WI, 53217, along with your email address for the trip letter in late August. There are only 30 spots, so plan to join us for end-of-summer fun.

    Special invitation: Non-campers may want to come and play for a day, or join campers for the traditional Saturday 6 pm potluck--please let Mary know you are coming, and bring your own tableware and a dish to pass.

    Contact Mary Mueller at 414-477-5710 or mjmueller.uef@gmail.com for more information. Check out the park website for park information.
