2nd Friday Potlucks are back!

Each month we gather to welcome new and existing members of our community.  We invite everyone to come out to meet new friends and enjoy the company of old friends.  You do not need to be a paid OPALGA+ member to attend one of our potlucks.

***Please remember being fully vaccinated is a requirement to attend the potluck***


The October OPALGA+ Potluck will be on Friday, October 14 from 7-10 pm at the home of John Becvar and James (Jim) Walsh at 719 Bonnie Brae Pl, River Forest, IL.  We will be outside as much as possible. Please bring a dish to share and BYOB. We will have extra OPALGA+ Yard Signs so if you didn’t get one earlier, now is your chance. All are welcome–members, guests, straight allies, etc.  The more the merrier!  See you on October 14th.

A special thanks to past hosts Mary Ann Mohanraj and Kevin Whyte who hosted OPALGA+ in April 2022;  Kelly Soprych who hosted in May and again in September; Ron Roman and Doug Cotsamire who hosted in June; and Rick Wagner and John Sahl who opened their garden to us in July; and Bob Personett and Alan Hommerding who collected school supplies in August at their house.   Save the date for our future potlucks:

  • Nov 11 – 605 Iowa, Oak Park – hosted by Paul Loux and Brad Craig
  • Dec 9 – 413 S Kenilworth Ave, Apt 2, Oak Park – hosted by Janice Marin and Bailey Abbe
