I'd like to call this blog, The Blog Café. I'd like to think of it as coffee with friends, a chat with neighbors and a sharing of information in a casual friendly way. It's the destination for 'what's going on, in and about River Forest'. I see it as a way for our community to share ideas, keep up to date and learn more about our Village. I truly believe that great ideas can come from small conversations. So let the conversations begin!
What's the best thing about the Oak Park Farmers' Market? Many quickly say that it's the nationally known donuts! I say it's community! Last Saturday marked the last market of 2010. It'll be six and a half months until the next market on May 21, 2011.
I have been quietly watching what happens on the streets of River Forest as I take my kids around on Halloween night and here is what I have found. Some houses give out full-size chocolate bars, gift certificates and soda pop, but only to the "neighborhood kids". I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this practice.
