Veterans, Book Sales, School Meetings and Park District Petitions
This week was a busy one for just about everyone.
This week started with another District 113 meeting. Residents heard some specifics about what renovations the school has in mind, but there's still no word on the cost.
Also early in the week, Ravinia threw a Christmas ornament decorating event at the Whole Foods in Deerfield. On Friday, Ravinia hosts a performance by singer Teresa Eickel, who confided in Patch that she had a terrible voice when she first started. We immediately told everyone.
This week, Patch finally got around to figuring out why so much of Highland Park reminds you of the Emerald City.
Thursday was Veterans Day, and Highland Park held a ceremony at Veterans Memorial on Central. Mayor Michael Belsky was there, sitting in front of State Senator Susan Garrett and mayoral candidate Nancy Rotering.
Last, we revealed the mastermind behind the recent petition to unseat park district commissioners Cal Bernstein and Elaine Waxman. Whether the petition is a good idea or not continues to be discussed in the comments section.
