Recent Events

On Monday, December 21st, 2015, we hosted the 2015 Chicago Infrastructure Tour with the topic: Municipal Water Reclamation.

The tour began at the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant which is the largest waste water treatment facility in the world.

Next we toured the Mainstream Pumping Station. Here we travelled 300 ft below ground to see the massive pumps at the bottom of Chicago's Deep Tunnel.

The tour was concluded with lunch at the Chicago Brauhaus. Tony & Adam presented "A History of Major Chicago Infrastructure Projects - 1872 to Present" while we dined on wienerschnitzel.

Later in the week a few of us extended our water reclamation education with a tour of the Wilmette Harbor Diversion Structure in Wilmette, Illinois.

Why a Family Portal?

In the old days it was easy. All the important family information was stored in kitchen drawer. Everyone in the family knew to look here for phone numbers, recipes, photos, and other key documents. As family members moved away, the kitchen drawer information portal no longer worked. Thankfully Al Gore invented the internet and we were able to finally find a new location for the "kitchen drawer".
