Strengthening Our Community Through Learning

Since 1891 our organization has focused on promoting learning and giving.  Supporting our 21st century community, we encourage social responsibility by providing charitable service, financial support to community not-for-profit organizations and college scholarships to local high school students.


Our parking lot is scheduled to be closed by the Lake/Forest developer on or before Monday, October 6 to allow them to begin erecting fence barriers prior to the garage demolition.  VALET PARKING SERVICE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE REGULAR MONDAY LUNCH/PROGRAMS, FROM 10 AM TO 4 PM. Simply drive up to the portico; your car will be safely parked and returned to you at the entry door.  Please allow extra time , both before and after the program, for this service.  You are responsible for the fee of $5 per car, so we encourage car-pools.  Note even if our parking lot appears to be open, it will be entirely dedicated to valet parking.  Arriving early to secure a free parking spot will not be an option.  You may choose to park at the Holley Court Garage, at their standard rates.  You can also opt for free on-street parking in the area.  Be aware, however, there is a two-hour limit.  During the construction of the new garage , expected to be approximately  12-months, valet service  will be offered for every Monday lunch/program, and any other event of 50 or more attendees.
