FRIDAY, APRIL 17 -- "CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES IN THE LAST (POTLUCK) SUPPER + BOTANICAL CENTER CHOCOLATE TOUR -- Circa 21 Theatre in Rock Island, IL

If you have laughed along with the Church Basement Ladies previously, don't worry ... this is an all new show! In this latest and final installment of the series, we will be transported back to 1979 and the day of the church's Centennial Celebration. If you have ever attended a church potluck supper, you will feel right at home as the parishioners gather to share hot dishes, cookie bars, and stories from the last 100 years. The day includes a sumptuous lunch including dessert along with a dazzling pre-show revue by the "Bootleggers" (performing wait staff).


On our way home we will stop at the Quad Cities Botanical Center for a tropical escape and Chocolate Tour. This tour takes a closer look at the sweet lure of chocolate. Our addiction to chocolate began more than 3000 years ago in Central America. We'll examine the fascinating history of chocolate, follow the chocolate-making process, taste several exotic-flavored fudges, and make a visit to a chocolate tree (and other highlighted plants) in the tropical conservatory.

Cost: $90 per person

Registration: Open now through March 2015

Fee Includes: Lunch, performance, Botanical Center tour, motor coach transportation, taxes and tips

Departure: 9:30 AM from First State Bank Rochelle parking lot, return approx. 6:30 PM.
