​The goal of the MCJC “Let’s Have Fun Together” initiative is to enhance the social program offerings at MCJC in an effort to help build community. These are events we shared during the past year:

1) Saturday June 9, 2018: attended the Green Room Productions family-friendly improv show at the Cosman Theater in Huntley. Prior to the program, we had dinner at the Kosta’s Restaurant in Algonquin.

2) Saturday July 15, 2018: attended the Woodstock Folk Festival and had a picnic lunch in the park on the Woodstock City Square.

3) Monday December 24, 2018: annual Christmas Eve Chinese Dinner at the New China Restaurant in Carpentersville.

4) Sunday March 10, 2019: Charles Troy’s presentation of “The Creation of West Side Story” at MCJC, followed by a dessert social.
