This week’s Barrington Life newspaper just arrived in our mailbox with a focus on photos from this year’s Concours d’Elegance classic car show and more great stories from around Barrington.
In addition to the photos from last weekend’s Barrington Councours d’Elegance and a feature on the Chicago Bears Youth Football Camp that took place this week in South Barrington, Barrington Life editor, Dan McCaleb says you’ll also find the following features:
• Barrington’s Jeffrey Pride Foundation, a local group that raises money for childhood cancer research in honor of a local boy who died at age 7 from childhood leukemia. A July 26 golf outing at Makray Memorial Golf Club is a fundraiser for the foundation.
• This fall, every middle school student in District 220 will be issued a Netbook laptop for use at school at home. We write about how that came about, and what it will mean for students and parents.
• In Their Life features Dr. Kurt O. Thomsen, Flint Creek coordinator for the Barrington Area Council of Governments and its Water Resource Initiative.
• We also have stories on fitMS NeuroBalance Center and its upcoming fundraiser, a Q&A with the general manager of Kriser’s pet store, and so much more.
