Cornerstones will gather in May for a joint event with Fourth Dimension, the Fourth Church fellowship group hosted by individuals fifty and older.

Chicago historian Matt Nickerson, author of the book Lake View, will discuss Chicago's storied north-side neighborhood, from its days as America's celery capital to its heyday as a German community and finally to the celebrity-studded affluent locale it is today.

The evening will begin with appetizers, followed by dinner and the presentation. A $25 prepaid reservation with Carol Allerton (312.640.5448) is required by Wednesday, May 4.
