A "Yacht" of Fun - Great Midwest Region's Largest Kickoff
On Sunday, September 20th, 2015, the Great Midwest Region #61 hosted its largest kickoff ever, the second largest kickoff in the order, and largest relative to the size of its region. The Hawaiian-themed party took off from Navy Pier on the extravagant Spirit of Chicago, and it was a "Yacht" of fun.
There were a total of 375 teens engaged that night and over 130 teens who are now being recruited to GMR. There were not one, but two DJs playing music during the night while teens danced and socialized. The night brought Jewish teens from all over the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area together for a ton of fun and we are now starting to spread our fraternity and sorority across Illinois in attempt to hit our goal of 500 members!
