This week’s issue of Shaw Media’s Barrington Suburban Life newspaper arrives in our mailboxes today and – as we do every week – we have a preview of the stories you’ll find inside PLUS a peek at the paper itself. And this week’s cover story goes to… The Hope’s in Style Fashion Show Fundraiser hosted by BHS students raising money to build homes for families living in Guatemala City’s garbage dump. There were so many great spring styles spotted on the runway this year and they broke their record for money raised.
Here’s a look at the range of stories you’ll find inside this week’s paper, thanks to Barrington Suburban Life reporter, Tarah Thorne…
