Lake Michigan League of Women Voters Annual Meeting. Join us at the Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center at the Illinois Beach State Park in Zion. The Board meets for a working lunch at noon on Friday. Everyone is welcome. This will be followed by a visit to the North Shore Sanitary District's sludge burner; the first in this country, and a walk along the Des Plaines River Wetlands Demonstration Project. A member of the team will show us this 550-acre site which had been abandoned farm fields and gravel quarry pits and is now a rehabilitated ecosystem. After dinner, we will have a fascinating program. After the Saturday morning annual meeting, we'll have a guided walk of the state park. This is the only remaining beach ridge shoreline left in the state.

This event, attended by several hundred women from all parts of Lake County, is a fundraiser for the LCWC scholarship, which is awarded annually to a female student who attends the College of Lake County.

Being a "Cool City" - Highland Park's Perspective. Join the Highland Park League as they host a forum that will discuss the issues of being a Cool City from the City of Highland Park's perspective.

So what is a Cool City? These are cities that have made a commitment to stopping global warming by signing the U.S. Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement. Begun in 2005, the Cool Cities campaign empowers city residents and local leaders to join and encourage their cities to implement smart energy solutions to save money and build a cleaner, safer future.
