Event description

Description

It’s time for the IIT alumni in the South Suburbs to get together again since Thanksgiving is done and Christmas is still about a month off. We have a break between the holidays when we can spend a few hours with fellow alumni in a friendly environment where we can have some appetizers, drink with friends and at the same time learn something valuable. This time we’ll get to listen to a presentation about the stock market and investing in the stock market by Patric Bourbon – a fellow IIT alumnus. He’ll tell us all about the mysteries of the stock market and how we can do better when investing in the future. He’ll cover stock market basics, explain why investing in the stock market is important, and why asset allocation and diversification are also important.

Today there are numerous companies and market experts out there that provide us with market guidelines, but Pat Bourbon is a fellow alumnus so he is not giving us a presentation to sell us his services. His presentation is designed to provide us with useful information, and the IIT South Suburb Alumni organization is happy to provide IIT alumni with an opportunity to learn about long term investments.

This event is taking place at the Public Landing Restaurant in Lockport and this restaurant has some historic heritage. It was originally called the Gaylord Building, and it is one of 29 National Trust Historic sites and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1838 and is located along the I&M Canal which is part of the first US National Heritage Corridor. There is a museum to the canal system inside the restaurant and a park located outside of the restaurant that has an interesting statue of Abraham Lincoln. There's a parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, and if that lot is full there is more parking across the street. Here's the address for the Public Landing website: http://www.publiclandingrestaurant.com/ - you can copy and paste this into your browser to learm more about the restaurant, or you can just do a search for "Public Landing Lockport".

Coming to this alumni event is a blast from the past, because you'll be stepping into one of the oldest buildings in the South Suburbs. Public Landing also has great food so you can get a full dinner after the get-together if you haven't eaten too much of the appetizers.
