I just wanted to thanks to the very wonderful and generous businesses we have in Forest Park. Last week I was asked to help get raffle prizes for a benefit being held for a very sick friend. I went around town and asked for help. The response was amazing! This is one of the reasons why I love to shop local and encourage everyone to do so. Thanks to Ed’s Way, Scratch Kitchen, Schauer’s Hardware, Slainte, Team Blonde, Louie’s Grill, O’Sullivans, Francesca’s in La Grange, Circle Bowl, House Red, Shanahan’s, La Maison de Bonbon, FP Chamber, Jimmy’s Place and Kinderhook Tap.
