We’ve made it to day #33 of 365 and we’re excited to say that the Chicago Tribune has asked if they could feature this blog every Thursday in the paper and on their website, too. That’s great news becuase it’ll help us get the word out about cool stuff to do, places to go and people to meet in Barrington, Illinois.

Lastly, thank you for being here.

There are many more to meet before I make it to April 1st, 2011 and it would be great if you are one of them.  We also have a bunch of fun stuff we’re planning to write about this week, so please visit us again soon.

  1. Liz, What an incredible thing you’ve got going here! Great idea and great pix! I was the mom sitting at Barrington Martial Arts when you took the photos — got my boys in the shot at the end of class where they’re bowing.

    I am involved with three art groups in Barrington:

    The Barrington Cultural Arts Center (you did the 1940s show-thank you)

    The Barrington Writers Workshop (now in its 32nd year)

    The Barrington Cultural Commission

    Each has things coming up. I can list some dates and events for you and if you are at all interested in covering them, I can send more info. Thanks for doing this. What a wonderful contribution to our community. Tamara Tabel

  2. Hi Tamara, thanks so much for writing in the comments box! I would love to learn more about the groups you’re involved with and any upcoming activies. Please feel free to email or call me with the details or enter them in the suggestion box section of this blog (see tab above). This project is a lot of work, but it’s a great learning experience. I’ve met a lot of really nice people so far and I have a long way to go until the end, as my husband likes to point out :). I enjoyed visiting Barrington Martial Arts this week and I’ll be sharing my photos with Master Lawson, if you’re interested. Thanks again for your kind words. Please tell others about this website and I hope to hear from you soon about your upcoming events. Have a great weekend, Liz
