The FRIDAY WRAP for June 1st, 2018

Welcome to the Friday Wrap for June 1st, 2018! 

Pre-Wedding Party for Ms. Ieena Duggal:
On Monday evening, Mac Duggal and his wife hosted an unbelievable Pre-Wedding party for their daughter, Ieena Duggal, who is to be wed this weekend to Puneet Chowdhary.  The grounds included a tent that looked like half the size of a football field for tables and entertainment plus an area next door that looked like a shopping area in New Delhi, India (complete with sound effects) and with booths serving food, shawls, bangles and items to be purchased with the Indian (mock) currency that was provided at the front door.  Ieena is a Fashion Designer for Mac Duggal LLC, an internationally designer of Prom, Pageant and Evening wear spanning the globe in over 5 continents and 32 countries.  While there, I was able to meet numerous Burr Ridge residents and guests from as far away as Washington D.C. and Dubai.
808 Residents File Civil Rights Complaint against District 86:
It’s official, the complaint has been filed with the U. S. Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division.  According to a spokesman, “they collected over 800 signatures in two weeks time. The entire community understands the issue clearly and is very engaged.  People want the decades of inequity to end in D86. 
DESIGN BAR Grand Opening…Tonight and Tomorrow: 
The DESIGN BAR is holding their Grand Opening Celebration tonight (5-8 pm) and tomorrow (11 am-3 pm).  Please see attached for details!!
Two (2) Catholic Events Held . . .

  • Everest Academy held a prayer service on their last day of school (Thursday) at their new Grotto called the St. John Paul II Sanctuary, which is surrounded by a Prayer Garden complete with many statues of saints.  
  • St. Isaac Jogues Parish held their fifth annual Corpus Christi Eucharistic Procession on Thursday evening.  For the first time, Bishop Daniel Conlon celebrated the Mass at Notre Dame Church in Clarendon Hills where it started.  In 90 degree temperatures, I joined hundreds of fellow Catholics of all ages (and many Burr Ridge residents) in the procession which ended at St. Isaac Jogues Church with singing, adoration and followed by food and beverages in the parking lot.

Have a cool week,
