Don’t be “All Shook Up” with excitement in anticipation of our upcoming day trip to the Jacob Henry Mansion Estate in Joliet, Illinois on Thursday, November 16, for a delicious luncheon in the Victorian Ballroom followed by a Tribute to Elvis show performed live on stage by entertainer Logan Ramey with high energy, audience interaction, and respect for the legendary music career of Elvis Presley!
Logan is a performer that you are sure to love as he has gained the respect of fans and colleagues alike; including Elvis Presley’s step-brother! “Surrender” to your desire to join us for an authentic and heart-warming tribute to Elvis and his music.
After boarding Club members in Davenport (7:45am departure) and Moline (8:15am departure) on our chartered Tri-State Travel deluxe motorcoach, we will be on our way to Joliet in time for a 10:30am self-guided tour of the beautifully preserved Jacob Henry Mansion. The main floor is most elaborate in carving and the black walnut and oak is hand rubbed to attain the satin finish. Each room contains an ornately carved fireplace. The Mansion, a 3-year building project completed in 1876, is claimed to be the largest and best example of Renaissance Revival architecture still standing in the state of Illinois. The Mansion’s first floor is handicap accessible, but the optional second floor areas require visitors to use stairs.
It’s less than a block walk across the Mansion’s courtyard to the Victorian Hall, where we will be seated while our plated lunch is served at table. Enjoy Bourbon Barbeque Grilled Chicken complemented by sides of Au Gratin potatoes and vegetables, as well as a fresh tossed garden salad, warm rolls, whipped butter, and included beverages of coffee, tea and water. Of course, lunch wouldn’t be complete without a wedge of tasty pecan pie for dessert! And perhaps you’ll be tempted to wander over to the cash bar to purchase spirits, wine, or a soft drink while engaging in conversation with friends and new acquaintances. If you have any special dietary needs, including a vegetarian luncheon selection, please make a note of it to the Club when you submit your trip registration.
Logan Ramey’s performance begins following lunch. By mid-afternoon our stay will conclude, and we will be on our way back to the Quad Cities with an anticipated 5:15pm arrival in Moline and 5:45pm in Davenport.
