Local Voices Community Bulletin, Feb 11-19

Headlining this week: a La Grange Highlands theatre company folds, a Western Springs youth group does an awesome balloon fundraiser and EAB-infected trees in La Grange Park.

Here's a sampling of what Patch's Local Voices contributors from the La Grange, Western Springs and La Grange Park area shared with us this week:


Craig Fisher mourns the demise of the Theatre of the Highlands in La Grange Highlands, and also looks at why Countryside can "splurge on civic doodads" while Indian Head Park cannot.

Megan's "Food Wars: Healthy vs. Healthier" was popular, so how about a Part II with some more even better choices?

High-school youth at PCWS delivered nearly 500 Valentine's Day "Balloon-a-grams" to the community as a church fundraiser.

Yikes! They've found emerald ash borer (EAB) in La Grange Park and are removing thirty trees starting this week.

Grand Avenue Preschool had an excellent "bring-Dad-to-school-day."

The Illinois Senate Republican Staff are now blogging a weekly review of goings-on from Springfield.

Our ever-reliable Karen Deane is plugging some terrific scholastic honors for St. Francis Xavier 7th-graders as well as an Oscar-night party at Cela Creations Boutique.

Argonne National Lab taks about their new 112-foot-tall wind turbine

And the MWRD snagged a $250 million loan from the governor to "clean up Chicago waterways and create jobs."
