And then she added…
It’s a real community with all of the benefits. Small enough to get things done and support each other. I love that at a school event, it’s always standing room only. You don’t have to beg parents to be involved. I love the feeling that I rarely have to leave Skokie to for anything unless I want to. Dude, Old Orchard!
