Join us for the 4th annual Celebration of World Laughter Day In Illinois
The 13th annual celebration of World Laughter Day will explode with giggles in the Chicago area on Sunday May 1, 2011 from 11am 1pm. This will be the fourth year that the Park Ridge Hysterical Society has hosted the event for all of Illinois to join in and rediscover the gift of laughter. The event will be held in Centennial Park located at 200 S. Western Avenue in Park Ridge, IL which can be found in the northwest corner of Chicago about ten minutes from OHare airport.
The celebration will again be sponsored by You Can Say Yes Motivational Guidance Services and www.followthelaughter.com and hosted by the Park Ridge Hysterical Society. Opening events will include a Laughter Contest that is fun and informative to participants about their Laughabilities. A warm up session to prepare attendees for the exercises and games of laughter that are planned for the two hour event. Everyone is welcome to join this event as it will always remain a FREE event. No skills or talents are necessary, no comedy or jokes are used to promote the laughter and you dont even have to be funny to get the benefit from it.
The Park Ridge Hysterical Society is one of about 8,000 laughter clubs in the world offering the opportunity to move from stress to success with the element of joyful laughter. Done in an exercised format, the laughter becomes natural and authentic soon enough. The body and mind will benefit whether it is exercised or natural laughter so participants are encouraged to join in and discover a more oxygenated and euphoric difference in themselves in just one session.
We are pleased to announce that the great City of Chicago has recognized World Laughter Day issuing a resolution and presenting this document on April 21st, 2011 to the founder and director of the Park Ridge Hysterical Society, Lynda Tourloukis. The resolution was sponsored by the Board of Commissioners and was issued as a permanent recording of proceedings spearheaded by Commissioner Frank Avila of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of the City of Chicago. Ms. Tourloukis was presented with the resolution to Lynda at the April Board of Commissioners Public forum and both Tourloukis and Avila shared some of the benefits of laughter along with a few exercises with the board.
