Greetings from Orlando!

I'm halfway through my week long vacation in Central Florida - and can't say that I'm missing the weather back home too much. We watched the Channel 9 news last night and saw Tom Skilling talk about a frost advisory.... yikes! You'll be happy to know it's sunny and 85 here today! :)

I came across a couple of odds & ends I thought I'd include in on today's blog:

MainStreet Libertyville names new Executive Director:
Mainstreet Libertyville has named Pam Hume as the new Executive Director of the organization. Pam has been extremely active with the organization over the years and is a great fit! According to Mick Zawislak's article in the Daily Herald, Pam has been a part of the organization since it was created (I'm pretty sure it was under my former neighbor, former Mayor Eckmann back in 1989). I think Pam has some great vision for the organization and is the right person for this job! Which reminds me, have you sent in your Mainstreet membership for this year?? If not, follow this link and get signed up to become a MainStreet member, today!!

Several Bears throw Alex Brown a going away party in Downtown Libertyville:

I came across this in today's Chicago Tribune - it seems several Chicago Bears threw Alex Brown a going away party in Downtown Libertyville at Casa Bonita! I wanted to include this mention in today's blog to underscore how much of a big deal Downtown Libertyville's restaurant scene has become.
