It’s summertime and the feeling is in the air! Baseball is in full swing and the flowers are at bloom again. What a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some family friendly events hosted by the NIU Alumni Association.
This summer our first stop is at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL. We will start our Saturday morning taking in the beauty of the horticultural gems as we ride in the Acorn Express Narrated Train Tour. You’ll enjoy trees, plants and beautiful flowers, each with a distinct fragrance and theme from around the world. Following the tour, we will enjoy a full lunch reception with an all day access pass to explore the horticultural gems The Arboretum has to offer!
The cost for this family friendly event is $30 for adults and $15 for children. Children of Cardinal & Black & Legacy Members get FREE admission. Click here to register.
If outdoors is not your style, be sure to attend the Free NIU Back to School Family Night at Costco in St. Charles on Wednesday, July 28. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to do your back to school shopping while chatting with fellow NIU alumni.
It’s a night of special discounts and fun activities, including special raffles and prizes for NIU alumni and friends from 95.9 The River. Kids will enjoy games and face painting while everyone will enjoy the plentiful appetizer buffet supplied by Costco’s premium vendors.
Best of all, Cardinal & Black & Legacy members of the NIU Alumni Association will receive $50 worth of FREE coupons and products when they sign up for a Costco Membership. Click here to register.
