Planning Ahead for the Summer 

If you're anything like me, after the winter we've had, I am more than ready for summer! Spring break is over and we're coming into the home stretch of the school year. I'm looking forward to all of the possibilities of the things we can do, places we can go and the people we can see during those few months of summer. This got me thinking about how I can best spend this time "connecting" with my family and community, so I'm going to share with you some of the ideas I've come up with: 

Grayslake Community Events 
June 22- 24th Annual Arts Festival & Annual Wine Tasting 
July 12- Grayslake 5K and Kids Run 
August 16/17- Grayslake Summer Days 
August 17- Grayslake Summer Days Parade 
August 24- 7th Annual Color Aloft Balloon Festival
