Garlands Travel Club members had the opportunity to admire the work of one of their own while cruising Chicago’s famed architecture.
Garlands member, Sally Nutini (pictured above left)and her husband’s construction company, North Products, were behind a significant amount of high-end, custom skylights and doors created and installed in landmark buildings throughout the greater Chicago area, including The Shedd Aquarium, The Art Institute, Orchestra Hall, Metra stations, and many Chicago libraries, museums, and hospitals.
In fact, Nutini’s appreciation for fine architecture and quality construction was one of the many aspects that attracted her to The Garlands. “It’s architecturally absolutely beautiful,” says Nutini, who appreciates The Garlands landscaped grounds and nearby walking paths as well.
Her sister, MaryLou Nunamaker (pictured above right), who moved to The Garlands about six months before her, was the other main attraction.
“The people here are just so wonderful,” says Nunamaker, who happily welcomed her sister to the community where she enjoys her new first-floor home and patio, not to mention her new Garlands lifestyle.
Fresh off a trip to Chicago by Metra train (with a convenient, chauffeured ride to the station in The Garlands town car), Nunamaker and a Garlands neighbor recently caught Macbeth at Lyric Opera together. Frequently on-the-go, she enthuses, “I already feel like I’m at home. Everyone around me is so supportive and there is just so much to do.”
