Members of the Fante Benevolent Society, FBS, took their motto “Onuado” to another level as they and others were hosted by members of the group, Mr.and Mrs. Owusu at 7900 S. Indiana Ave. Chicago Illinois. The event was annual picnic of the organization which was normally hosted at a park. The atmosphere was joyful as the attendees were seen socializing and merrymaking. Such rare times where members of an association plan to ease off from work and other social life with their peers and others makes the Ghanaian community here in Chicago an enviable one!
