TMBC Louisa May Alcott Luncheon

In the Quad Cities, we have several colleges -- and they do "Lunch and Learn" programs. Last summer, Lilly and I went to the "Hamilton Women" luncheon. There was a wonderful actress who played the rolls of Eliza Schuyler, and her sisters Angelica and Peggy.  It was SO POPULAR, they had to run it twice.  (300 people is considered sold out).

This summer, their June event features the same wonderful actress.  This time, she is being Louisa May Alcott. And, as luck would have it -- Lilly and I just watched the recent PBS version of Little Women. And she loved it!!

One of the best things about these luncheons is the location. Our favorite location is the very fancy Outing Club.
It's a great excuse to get ALL DRESSED UP.
I restyled this adult lace dress for Lilly...and the back of the dress is her favorite thing.
We were both in our best outfits...
The food is always delicious. Lilly ate EVERY LAST BITE.! (Her mother could not believe she ate asparagus!)
She told her mother the food was "Perfection" (Hey -- TWO servings of strawberry shortcake)
This is our Louisa May, in her period costume.
She made a living as a writer,writing 43 books...and she never married.

So far, 2018 Grandma Camp is keeping me busy -- and going great!!
