Snow and Football on Thanksgiving

239. Celebrate a Barrington Thanksgiving

 As I promised, I’ve been compiling a list of favorite Thanksgiving traditions and reasons to be thankful this year in Barrington. I didn’t meet my goal of polling 30 people. But I made it to 15 and, for that, I am thankful, kind of like making it Halfway to Hana! Of all the “favorite traditions” I heard this month, the most popular ways to celebrate here in Barrington involve family, relaxation, neighbors and football.
I’m starting our list today with Barrington Bank and Trust President, Jon Stickney……

233. New Skating Plaza Opening in South Barrington!

 I have a bad habit of overusing exclamation points, but today, I simply HAD to put one in our title! Because, one week from today, the area’s only Open-Air Skating Rink will be opening for business in South Barrington. They’re busy setting it up at the South Barrington Arboretum and there are two big events tied to the outdoor “Skating Plaza’s” grand opening next weekend. The first is an appearance by “Skates”, the Chicago Wolves Mascot.…

231. Guess Where Wednesday & Last Week’s Winner

 So it’s clear to me now that local history is no mystery in Barrington! We had a record-breaking number of guesses come in last week when we published our “mystery photo” from the Barrington Area Library archives. More on that in a minute. But first, we have an AWESOME prize for the winner of our new mystery photo contest. So let’s get to it! I cropped this picture to make it a little more challenging. Can you guess what this is a picture of?

We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. Just moments ago we drew the winning name and it is……

224. “Guess Where Wednesday” & Last Week’s Winner

 We’re going back in time for this week’s “Mystery Photo” here at 365Barrington.com. This picture comes straight from the Barrington Area Library’s archive of historic photos. You can’t take a picture like this today because this building is no longer standing. But if you’ve been in Barrington a while, this one will probably be obvious. Can you guess what this is a picture of?

We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. Just moments ago we drew the winning name and it is……

From the Community

Today, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and the start of our WORDS MATTER campaign for No Name-Calling Week, bring your family together to talk about the incredible power of words. Words can harm, they can heal, they can inspire and they can change the world. Dr. King is considered by many to be one of the greatest speakers of all time, using his words, his passion, and his conviction to lead one of the most important movements in our nation's history. For today's family activity, talk about some of Dr. King's most famous quotes.

Here are few links to help:

Talk about the quotes that have meaning for you and the power that Dr. King's words have had to change the world.
