Home Newsroom 228. Sign Up for the South Barrington Gobbler Gallop

South Barrington is continuing a brand new tradition by hosting the second annual “Gobbler Gallop” one week from today on Sunday, November 21st. The 5K run and 1 mile walk is a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving season because you’ll be helping two important causes AND get a great workout at the same time.

Gobbler Gallop in South Barrington

Day-of registration for the Gobbler Gallop starts on Sunday morning at 8:30 and the race begins at 9AM at Munao Fountain at the Arboretum of South Barrington. The Arboretum is partnering with Barbara Rose Elementary School and the South Barrington Park District for the event. Pre-registration costs $8 for residents, $10 for non-residents and $15 if you register on the day of the race. All proceeds will benefit the Heart of a Marine Foundation, an organization that supports all branches of the US Armed Forces.

There will also be a “Sock Drive” and a “Cereal Drive” taking place on race day. Volunteers will be collecting white crew socks to be sent to those serving overseas and boxes of cereal to help feed the hungry right here in Barrington and the surrounding area.  People who participate in the sock and cereal drive could win raffle baskets, a leather bomber jacket, turkey dinners and more.

Hi guys! Today we'll be checking out some star-crossed lovers! 💔

No, **not** Romeo and Juliet! I mean first of all, the story of 牛郎织女 -- niú láng zhī nv -- dates back to at least the Jin Dynasty -- 250-420 AD 😱. Take that, Shakespeare! Also, Romeo and Juliet may be tragically "star-crossed," but, as the story goes, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu literally *are* stars -- on opposite ends of the Milky Way 😦.

Let's rewind. Zhi Nu is the youngest daughter of the Queen Mother of the West and the Jade Emperor (Hey -- we know who those people are! 😁).

Meanwhile, Niu Lang was a poor. sad, unloved cowherd. As many versions of the story go, though, the cow was magical -- which is never a bad thing 😂. The cow led Niu Lang to steal the clothes of a girl bathing with her sisters in a river.

As questionable as a method as that may seem, it worked! Zhi Nu and Niu Lang were married and had children ❤️.

But there's always a but. And this story's "but" is that the Queen Mother was not happy with this union. Niu Lang had a magical coat (that's another story), and when the Queen Mother tried to separate them, he flew up to try to join Zhi Nu in the heavens.

Unfortunately, the Queen Mother wasn't having it, and she separated the two with a river in the sky, only allowing them to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar -- "Chinese Valentine's Day."
