On Saturday, November 21st, we gathered at the home of Mark Franklin to make ornaments for the tree trim. Supplies included paint, brushes and a lot of newspaper.
On Sunday, November 22nd, it was time to trim the tree at Brookfield Zoo.
We would be honored if you would join us for Brookfield Zoo’s Tree Trim. Chicago Force will have our own tree to decorate. We will provide the ornaments and you will bring the fun. We will decorate on November 22nd. Our tree is number 397, located on the West Mall, between the Pachyderm House and Tropic World. We will meet there at one in the afternoon.
We will have a limited number of zoo passes. Please contact Carrie on Facebook if you are interested.
