St. Patrick’s Day Party held on March 13th

On Saturday, March 13th, Schorsch Village hosted its annual St. Pat’s party. A real special thanks to Joseph’s Meat Market for providing the corned beef which, as usual, was fantastic! Also, a special thanks to John (Beans) Turay, who once again knocked it out of the park in the preparation of the corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots. It was great to see many familiar faces as well as those who came for the first time. We received favorable feedback and appreciate those that have offered to become involved in our future events and operations!

Real ID Update (October 1, 2021)

In last year’s Jan-Feb Informer we published an article giving details for obtaining a Real ID in Illinois. At that time facilities were crowded due to the overlap in regular services and those applying for a Real ID. If you were fortunate enough to have updated your ID then consider yourself lucky. The process for obtaining your Real ID is now restricted to Mondays from 7:30 – 2:00 with lines forming as early as 5:00am. These lines are overwhelmingly long. Please research all current times and procedures prior to your visit and double-check to make sure you have all the correct documentation as you will not want to go back a second time.
