  1. The events seem to revolve in most part around children and families and although that is nice, there is not a lot for single adults. is there a separate web site for those events?

  2. Is there a way to print out the calendar of just the month of June in one page? A printer friendly version?
    When I try to print it, it is wanting to print 25 pages in strange columns.

  3. Rockin Jump no longer has rockin tots on Saturdays in the summer if you want to make that change. They said it would return in the fall.

  4. There is a new gym opening in lindenhurst called Play Tyme Gym. They are opening at the end of January I believe and have added some classes and prices to their FB page. Just something new to add to the calendar. Thanks for all you do! ❤️

  5. Busy brains POP UP museum will be in Grayslake at the Heritage Center (in the basement) starting January 14 9-8pm and most other days 9-2. $5 for an all day pass. I didn’t see it on the calendar so thought I’d mention it.
