Cannolis were on the menu at a recent VHSC meeting. Presented by Tony Cannoli of Mundelein, participants learned to roll, form and fill three cannolis, to enjoy at the center or take home. Events now cancelled included Lunch with an Elvis impersonator, and a trip to the Chicago Art Institute. It is hoped that these activities can be rescheduled at a later date. All area seniors are invited to join the group as we look forward to the time we can resume activities. Individual membership dues are $10.00 or $15.00 for a couple.  For information contact the club president David at 224-433-1539
