December 10, 2015: Way of Lights
Join us this Thursday for our monthly social night, as we go to visit the Way of Lights at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois. We will meet at 7:00pm at the Shrine in the restaurant parking lot (see details, infra) and then after viewing the lights and other attractions, go to dinner at the Shrine restaurant.
The Shrine is located at 442 S. DeMazenod Dr, Belleville, Ill. 62223. From the Poplar Street Bridge, take I-64 east to I-255 (exit 7) then I-255 south to IL-15 (exit 17A), and then IL-15 east to the Shrine entrance. (*Do not* take IL-15 directly from the bridge, even if your GPS suggests it.) From the JB Bridge, take I-255 north to IL-15 (exit 17A) and then IL-15 east to the Shrine entrance. (Returning home in either direction, *do not* take IL-15 further west than I-255, but reverse these directions instead.) Once at the Shrine, follow the path for the Way of Lights until reaching the camels, shortly after which you will find a road to the right which leads to the gift shop and restaurant. Return here for dinner after viewing the lights.
