Delegates and guests to the July Chicago PMC meeting gather before lunch.


No bridges were required and no bank shots were needed when the Chicago and Western Lakes Port Council held its summer meeting at the Illinois Billiard Club in the suburb of Willow Springs on July 19.

The club was a location site for the Martin Scorsese film “The Color of Money” as well as several other movies (including Netflix’s “Night Sky”). Council members and guests toured the facility prior to the lunch meeting in the dining room next door.

PMC President Robert Howard and Secretary-Treasurer Bryan Powell updated the council on the success of its June golf outing which attracted nearly 150 participants. The pair said they already were working with the golf course for a date for next year.

About 30 people attended the lunch meeting, which included greetings from MTD Executive Secretary-Treasurer Daniel Duncan and Administrator Mark Clements.
