Morning Business Hour

IMG_4120Discussing Local Business

Thank you Andrew Kyres, Vice President of First Financial Bank, for putting together a wonderful morning business hour.  It was a great opportunity to network with our peers and learn about tools and resources that can help us build and grow our business! The featured speaker was District 1 U.S. Congressman Peter J. Visclosky.  He talked about the state of local business, the economy and current issues before the United States Congress.  Congressman Visclosky is an advocate for major economic development projects in Northwest Indiana.  He talked extensively about the recapitalization of the South Shore Rail line, the Gary/Chicago International Airport and the Marquette Plan (his lakeshore investment strategy).  It was great to hear in all the discussions with some great audience questions.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The annual Chicago river dyeing (last Saturday) was an experience.  The dyeing of the river has been a tradition for many generations and lots of folks were dressed in green to see the action live. Created with a concoction by the Plumbers Local Union 130.

The Irish population was growing steadily in Chicago by the mid-1800s, but it wasn’t until the next century that St. Patrick’s Day took hold of the city every March. The city’s first parade was held in 1956, five years before the river started flowing green. We took a look at just how that tradition got started.
