- Friday morning group gives men a place to be heard. We’ve all heard that friends should avoid conversations about politics and religion. “We bend that rule a little bit,” said Bill Harlander of Brookfield, a member of Friday Morning Regulars, a men’s group that meets every Friday morning at St. Barbara’s Parish Center in Brookfield to discuss anything and everything over doughnuts and coffee.For more years than its members can recall, the group has met to discuss the week’s events in the world, close to home and in their own lives. “It’s the one thing I do every week, without fail,” said Jay Sommerfield of La Grange. At 69, he’s a youngster in the group.
- “My wife has all kinds of groups she belongs to,” Sommerfield said. The Friday group gives him a chance to spend time with friends, too.
- To join in on the conversation, just show up at the parish center, 4008 Prairie Avenue (east side of street). Meetings are from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. For more information, call Aging Care Connections at (708) 354-1323. View the Press Release.
