“We must not see any person as an abstraction. Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.” – Elie Wiesel
LTDO’s Third Annual (and second LIVE) Oktoberfest was a blowout! Everyone was required to be vaccinated and the weather cooperated permitting abundant ventilation of Alter Brewing’s spacious Barrel Room. Everyone was taking photos with everyone else, and if that ain’t a successful political event then I’m a Ferengi.
Your Lazy Editor did not have time to include more than a smattering of photos, but we’re planning a special Oktoberfest Edition. Want to see your photos in the mix? Please email them to email@example.com and include identifying information!
Please join us on Friday, July 31 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. for LTDO’s next Trivia Night Fundraiser. The event will be hosted on Zoom by LTDO member Urzula Urzua.
Did you miss our first Trivia Night? You missed a great time! We are going to be playing via Zoom1, so be camera ready (or wear a mask)!! Help LTDO raise funds for rent, printing, and postage. Every little bit helps.
You may enter for any donation amount. Winners will receive Democratic-themed protective hand-sewn masks.
The event will go live at 8:00 p.m., and there will be a new round of trivia about every 15 minutes. Feel free to join any game. Our host will also serve as scorekeeper and referee.
The host will email you a Zoom invitation once your donation is processed.
All proceeds will go to support LTDO programs. We look forward to seeing you there!
1We played via Facebook last time, and some of us were watching answers pop up before the video caught up with the questions. It was like Johnny Carson’s Carnac the Magnificent routines. This shouldn’t be a problem with Zoom, nor will the Facebook-averse need logins.
Our next Happy Hour is this coming Thursday, July 20, from 5 to 7 PM.
The last two were a lot of fun! No agenda, no cost, BYOB.
We’ll see you at 25w220 Lacey Ave, Naperville.
It’s time to celebrate all of those birthdays we’ve missed in quarantine! LTDO is hosting a birthday bash and we’d like all of you to join us. The party is Sunday, June 27th from 2 pm to 5 pm at Castaldo Park in Woodridge (3024 71st St).
Please sign up now (you can adjust your choices later) for this free event at https://go.LTDO.org/signup-6-27-21. (You might need to click the link again after you sign in.) The form has additional details; please consider volunteering to bring things on the form’s “wish list”.
Due to Covid restrictions, we are limited to 50 people at a time, so you must choose one of the early or late slots on the form. (If restrictions change, we’ll increase the limit.) Masks and 6 foot distancing will be observed.
We’ll provide veggie burgers, kosher hot dogs, buns, chips, and dessert. Hand sanitizer and wipes will also be available. We have a liquor permit, so you may BYOB. You may also want to bring a comfortable lawn chair and a beverage. If you are kind enough to bring additional goodies, they must be individually wrapped.
We look forward to seeing you!
