Southeast (Atlas) Region Senior Center
Join us for a tour of the Southeast (Atlas) Region Senior Center. This is a significant event for our family. This center was named after an Atlas family member, Francis Joseph Atlas, Jr. He was a significant contributor to the welfare of senior citizens of Chicago. The first Friday of every August, they celebrate Francis Joseph Atlas, Jr., with the Atlas Fest. Fortunately, this year’s reunion is taking place at the same time allowing us to participate in a city event that honors one of our own.
