House in the Wood Gala Lake Forest supports Open Lands camp BY EMILY SPECTRE DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

T

he North Shore Board of Northwestern Settlement will host its main fundraiser on October 21 in Chicago to support House in the Wood camp, which provides enriching experiences to children from some of Chicago’s most economically disadvantaged communities. Idyllically located on Lake Delavan in Wisconsin, House in the Wood gives children a traditional summer camp experience, and it also includes a nature center where STEM-based educational programs are held throughout the year. The nature center was made possible through the North Shore Board’s fundraising efforts and its supporters. “It is evidence of how loyal the supporters are who have been coming back since 1936,” said Vicki Kastory of Northbrook, one of three co-chairs of the House in the Wood Gala.

t was hot even before the Falbe family of Lake Bluff lit the torch, but the weather didn’t hamper Lake Forest Open Lands Association’s Bagpipes and Bonfire celebration on September 24. Held at the Middlefork Nature Preserve, Bagpipes and Bonfire has raised more than $3.4 million since the tradition began 30 years ago. Some 1,800 people attended, many wearing plaid shorts, pants, dresses and kilts. Tributes were made to board members who have passed away, including Ken Campia; skydivers fell from the sky; Scottish games were played, and bagpipes filled the evening with historic, Lake Forest Open Lands Association board member John Dick stands before the raging fire on September 24. He came up with the idea for the Bagpipes & Bonfire fundraiser 30 years ago. PHOTOGRAPHY BY KERRI SHERMAN mournful tunes.

Broken china becomes heirloom jewelry at Vintage Bliss

CAMP Continued from PG 1 $475,000 to benefit the camp. Many of the board members rely on skills developed in the corporate world to plan the event. “It’s a great network of women,” said Tina Barr of Winnetka, another of the Gala’s co-chairs. The year 1936 marks the founding of the North Shore Board to exclusively support House in the Wood. While initially the board raised money by selling members’ own handiwork, over time the fundraisers became more sophisticated. Eventually North Shore Board’s main fundraiser became a large event held at the Four Seasons known as the Glitter Ball. The name was changed to House in the Wood Gala to connect the event to the camp. This year, for the first time, House in the Wood Gala will be held at Morgan Manufacturing. “Like the camp, the event always evolves and stays on trend for our guests,” Kastory noted. Morgan Manufacturing is “industrial chic,” with rustic wood tables that play up the gala’s camp theme. The farm-to-table menu will include Wisconsin cheeses and local produce. Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts band — son of Rick Nielsen of the popular 1980s’ band Cheap Trick —will entertain guests with music influenced by rock ’n’ roll and 1960s’ soul. “It should be a fun band for the venue,” said Gala co-chair Melissa Corley of Winnetka. The black-tie optional event will include a silent and live auction, as well as a fund-a-need program that will allow supporters to sponsor a camper. For the second time, the board is offering packages with an all-inclusive weekend at the camp

for up to 50 guests. The beautiful setting on a lake with cabins, outdoor activities and a new nature center makes House in the Wood ideal for family reunions or corporate getaways. In addition to organizing the House in the Wood Gala, board members also visit the camp and lead activities throughout the year. One board member taught an art class, another board member who is a caterer held a cooking class,

while other members held pilates and yoga classes. “There are so many women (on the board) with gifts and talents that they share,” Kastory said.

House in The Wood Gala will be held on October 21 at 6 p.m. at Morgan Manufacturing, 401 North Morgan Street, Chicago. Open to the public, online reservations and an auction preview are available at www.northshoreboard.org.

gust of wind pushed jewelry designer Nancy Gissendaner’s career in a new direction. A few years ago, Gissendaner was working at an antique show next to two sisters who had a large collection of highend vintage china. As the ladies were packing up for the day, wind knocked the plates to the ground. The women were upset, especially because the china belonged to their mother.

SPORTS COURT APPEAL

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @tnswsports

Verdict is in as Lake Forest High School’s Rabjohns attracts high praise BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

G

eese honked above the tennis courts. A train’s horn blared, drowning out the clattering it had made to announce its arrival. Catchy, pop music — serving as entertainment for spectators and players before the start of a field hockey game — emanated from the stadium near the tennis courts. But Lake Forest High School freshman Kiley Rabjohns produced the most emphatic sounds on Sept. 23 with her tennis racket, in a No. 1 singles match against Lyons Township senior Joie Reisch at the Cookout Invitational in Lake Forest. The 5-foot-6 Rabjohns struck thunderous winner after thunderous winner on an LFHS West Campus court. She also mixed things up with a melodious forehand slice here or with a dulcet backhand slice there, extending points and wearing out Reisch in 90-degree temperatures — on a sunny second day of autumn. Rabjohns lost the first game of the match but exited the court with a resounding 6-1, 6-0 victory to maintain her undefeated record. “Kiley hits the ball early, on the rise, and goes for her shots,” Scouts assistant coach Corky Leighton says. “She picks the right shot to hit, every time, with a motor that’s always running. Amazing; she’s amazing. She’s quick and talented. Her game is simple, and she makes tennis look simple with the kind of talent she has. “But you know what I really like? Kiley is always working, always looking, to improve her game.” And to think: Rabjohns — a Blue Chip netter (Class of 2021) ranked No. 18 in the U.S., No. 3 in the Great Lakes and No. 2 in Illinois by tennisrecruiting.net — works with an instructor who charges exactly zero dollars an hour and is a former Yale … hockey player. Josh Rabjohns is his name. Or “Dad” to Kiley and her sister, Autumn, a hard-hitting Deer Path Middle School seventh-grader with a penchant for turning fluffy, fresh, right-out-of-the-can tennis balls into bald ones in no time.

player, too.” Life off the court — like life on it — often requires adjustments. Rabjohns continues to make those in her first month at LFHS. “So much homework,” she says with a smile. “But I’m getting used to it. At lunch? So many food options. Walking into the cafeteria at school is like walking into a big grocery store.” As Rabjohns continues to ring up victories, with most of them lasting less than an hour, don’t expect more than her tennis racket to do the talking for her. The superb athlete behind those loud, crowd-pleasing winners has no desire to toot her tennis horn. To anyone. “She’s really humble,” Fawcett, one of the tri-captains, says. “There’s nothing showy about her. Kiley is a really good tennis player, with focus and determination. When you watch her play, when you see how zoned in she is on every point, it’s clear how dedicated she is to the sport and how much she has benefitted from repetition. You don’t hit the shots she hits in matches without putting in the hard work.” RIP-ROARING: Kiley Rabjohns of the Scouts blasts a backhand during singles play at the Cookout Invite. The freshman remains undefeated entering the second month of the season. PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOEL LERNER

Her composure, as a freshman … I love that. She’s cool and focused and coachable. Great team player, too.” — Lake Forest High School girls tennis coach Denise Murphy

Josh often drills on local courts with both of his daughters. “Kiley is focused on every point, and she loves to compete,” Josh Rabjohns says. Rabjohns’ most formidable weapon might be her comportment between points. Watch her after she cracks a winner or after she makes a rare error. Her body language screams POSITIVITY after a winner and after an error: Forget about what just happened; on to the next point. “So calm and composed on the court, no matter what the score is in a match — that’s Kiley,” says Scouts senior doubles player Julianna Roman, a tri-captain with classmates Teresa Fawcett and Emily Gorczynski. “If she’s frustrated, she would never let her opponent know it. She goes out there and plays tennis like it’s a chess match, all structured and all business. You don’t want to mess

around with her on the court. “Off the court,” Roman adds, “Kiley is a bit reserved but fun and sweet and nice.” And thrilled to be a part of her school’s varsity tennis squad. Every. Single. Day. “To hear cheers from your teammates and to cheer for your teammates … I love the atmosphere of high school tennis, love everything about it,” says Rabjohns, whose biggest prep win to date is a 6-4, 2-6, 10-8 (super tiebreaker) defeat of Deerfield High School junior Emily Casati, whose mother, Michelle (Torres), played for New Trier, won the state singles title in 1981 and reached a career-high world singles ranking of No. 18 on the Women’s Tennis Association Tour in 1984. “Early on, in preseason, I felt welcomed. Everybody was nice, especially [sophomore] Grace Gescheidle, as she said bye to me

after a day of conditioning. I’m having fun around my teammates, around my new friends. You don’t forget how people make you feel when you’re a part of something for the first time.” What Scouts head tennis coach Denise Murphy remembers thinking as she watched Rabjohns pound groundstrokes and construct points in preseason drills last month: “I thought, ‘Wow,’ ” Murphy recalls. “Honestly, I thought the same thing about the whole group, our strongest team in three years. I noticed, right away, a different tone in our tryouts; it was serious, a little quieter. Kiley did a fantastic job with our preseason conditioning requirements. Nothing fazed her. Her talent, her work ethic, everything about her stood out. Her composure, as a freshman … I love that. She’s cool and focused and coachable. Great team

Notable: The Scouts’ other winners in their 3-2 defeat of Lyons Township’s Lions at the Cookout Invite on Sept. 23: Emily Gorczynski (No. 2 singles) and Nika Belova/Salma Alsikafi (No. 1 doubles). LFHS received singles wins from Kiley Rabjohns (No. 1) and Alex Slomba (No. 2) and doubles victories from Belova/ Alsikafi (No. 1), Olivia Wheldon/ Kelly Kunz (No. 3) and Lucy Rubenstein/Keaton Wilhelm (No. 4) in its 4-2 win over Barrington High School at the same invite. … While LFHS assistant girls tennis coach Corky Leighton monitored action and delivered tips and encouraging words at the Cookout Invite last weekend, his wife, Kathy, attended the LFHS field hockey game held at the stadium near the tennis courts. Scouts junior Madden Plante, the couple’s niece, tallied the first goal of Lake Forest’s 7-1 defeat of Deerfield HS, where the couple’s son, Josh, happens to teach math and coach boys tennis.

e’s become pretty good at learning on the fly. He proved that last year. In a Class 8A state quarterfinal game at Huntley High School, Loyola Academy’s Andrew Forsyth was thrown into a difficult situation and basically asked to do the miraculous. Way down on the depth chart at quarterback, Forsyth was the backup to the backup to the backup. He was deemed the “use only in an emergency” QB. Enter … the emergency. Starter Tommy Herion left the game with a concussion in the opening quarter. Backup Quinn Boyle didn’t dress due to illness. And LA’s coaches chose to limit the quarterback reps for star receiver Jake Marwede. And? Things couldn’t have turned out any better for LA. With Forsyth at the controls (6-11-0, 62 yards), the Ramblers went home with a 24-0 win.

Less than a year later, things have changed for Forsyth. Dramatically. He’s been moved to wide receiver. And, by all indications, it’s a pretty good fit for the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Forsyth. He was targeted five times and came up with four catches for 34 yards in Loyola’s 41-14 victory over visiting Fenwick on Sept. 23. “He’s such a good athlete. We wanted to find a way to get him on the field,” said LA offensive coordinator Tyler Vradenburg. Forsyth came up with his first catch (18 yards) in a Week Three win over Mt. Carmel. He had a 15-yard reception in the team’s victory at St. Francis in Week Four. “Just being out there is great,” said Forsyth. “It’s nice that the coaches trust me. That they have my back.” Forsyth opened the 2017 season as the possible Game One starting quarterback against Phillips. But

idea.” It’s been a transition for Forsyth, who has played behind center his entire football life. “The hardest part has been learning how to stalk block. That’s new to me,” said Forsyth. “And I’m also trying to run crisper routes.” “Being a quarterback, he knows what I want out there,” said Vradenburg. “He’s smart. He helps us.” And having more options at receiver will only serve to behoove Boyle, a dual-threat QB. Boyle not only ran the ball 16 times for 122 yards against the Friars, but he also completed passes to seven different Andrew Forsyth makes a catch for the Ramblers in a win over receivers and finished 22-for-33 for Fenwick last weekend.

And he’ll do anything it takes.” Boyle also looked Forsyth’s way on LA’s second series of the second half. And once again, Forsyth picked up 13 yards on a long fourthdown play. “Whatever works,” said Boyle, who is now being backed up by junior John Fallon. “I have a lot of options. And Andrew was getting open a lot.” LA’s talented receiver corps also includes Joyce (2-32), Rory Boos (3-31), Dillon Grant (5-36), Artie Collins (4-54) and Alex King (1-10). Grant (8 yards) and Collins (12 yards) had TD catches. And don’t forget Noah Jones. The junior speedster, who has been sidelined with an injury, eventually will enter the mix.

Playing to (Bald)win Dedicated Highland Park High School safety sets the tone in win over Cougars BY KEVIN REITERMAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

L

uke Baldwin is wildly enthusiastic about football. Which impresses his coach — thoroughly. “He’s a kid that needs football as much as football needs him,” says Highland Park High School head football coach Joe Horeni. “If he’s not playing football, what’s he going to do? Play chess? “And there’s nothing wrong with chess,” the coach adds. But Baldwin, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound safety, plays football with an unapologetic passion and checkmate precision. “He’s 100 percent dialed in,” says Horeni. “He’s what you want in a high school football player. He makes the most of every second that he’s out there. “He embraces the game,” the coach adds. “Has fun with it.” A pumped-up Baldwin gave it his all in HP’s 27-14 victory over host Vernon Hills on Sept. 22. The two-year starter helped to set the tone in this CSL North battle, when he came up with a critical pass breakup at the goal line on a fourth-andshort call late in the first quarter. “A great play,” says Horeni. “He’s always out there flying around.” Baldwin wanted the interception. He settled for the pass breakup. “We were in man coverage,” Baldwin says. “I saw him run the out route, and I jumped it.” Baldwin also had a PB late in the second quarter on a sideline toss by Vernon Hills quarterback Derek Jarrell. He played that one to perfection. “I’m better at tackling, but I had a chance to make a play on the ball there,” says Baldwin. “I gave it my best effort.” Baldwin went into the game at Vernon Hills flying high after coming up with arguably his best game ever against Prospect a week earlier. In the 31-7 victory over the Knights, Baldwin made 11 tackles, broke up three passes, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble. Thus, Baldwin was bursting at the seams to get going against the Cougars. On a

some interest. “I’m trying to do whatever it takes to play at the next level,” says Baldwin, who plans to study sports journalism or health and wellness in college. “Just want to do something in sports,” he says.

The other offensive standout for HP was junior Giancarlo Volpentesta. Perhaps, Volpentesta means Versatile One. He definitely showed his range in this game.

“Yeah, my feet are going through a lot right now,” he says. “I’m just trying to play through it.” Baldwin, who also plays baseball at the school, doesn’t want his football life to end. He’s put together a profile on the NCSA (Next College Student Athlete) Recruiting website. He’s drawn

ounseling Center of the North Shore Executive Director Lenna Silberman Scott was on the phone with a woman when the woman’s voice began to quiver. The woman cried shortly thereafter. “I spoke with her, and she calmed down,” Silberman Scott recalls. “The woman had been dealing with a serious issue. She met with one of our therapists that day.” A couple of days later the woman called Counseling Center of the North Shore (CCNS) — formerly known as Family Service of Winnetka-Northfield — and asked to speak with Silberman Scott again. “You should have heard her, heard the excitement in her voice,” says the 47-year-old Silberman Scott, named in early August to succeed the retiring Dr. Robert Mardirossian as executive director of an agency, founded in 1893, with its original mission to distribute food and clothing to needy families. “The woman told me, ‘I was at the end of my rope on the day I met my therapist.’ She later said, ‘I love my therapist.’ I realized, as I hung up, This is why we’re here.” The CCNS mission today: “Helping people through life’s challenges and transitions by providing counseling, therapy and community education.” CCNS therapists are experienced licensed mental health professionals who offer highquality care to all, regardless of the ability to pay. Types of services provided at the Winnetkabased organization include child, adolescent and adult therapy; couples and family therapy; and substance abuse and addiction therapy. “The level of experience of our therapists is unparalleled, with some having been involved in their field of expertise for 30-plus years,” says Silberman Scott, who grew up in Glencoe, attended New Trier High School (Class of 1988) and is working toward an M.A. in counseling psychology from The Chicago School of

Professional Psychology. “Our therapists,” the former journalist and marketing/public relations professional adds, “believe in our mission. Giving back to the community is a priority for each of them. And our clinical director [Dr. Louis V. Haynes] has incredible energy and desire, along with a tremendous amount of training, to support the communities we serve.” The woman who skipped lunch hour in her senior year at New Trier in order to take an extra theater class has joined me for breakfast at Café Aroma in Winnetka. A resident of Buffalo Grove, with two children (Lauren, 18, and Andrew, 15), Silberman Scott orders coffee and a wild mushroom omelet with breakfast potatoes. “I was a theater geek in high school, and I sang in the choir-opera musical,” says Silberman Scott, who, as a student at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, was encouraged to consider a career as a theater critic but got her M.S.J. at Northwestern University-Medill School of Journalism and worked instead at CNN, CLTV, WFLD-TV and for several local print publications in the Chicago area. “One of my theater professors was John Bush Jones, who invited Marvin Hamlisch [an “EGOT”, winner of an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony] to the school to conduct a workshop. Real cool. I appreciated that so much. His energy, his perseverance, his at-

Audiences have gathered at senior centers, the Wilmette Theatre and the Glen Fest in Glenview, among other venues, for the ensemble’s concerts. The group presents a variety of music, from jazz to pop to Broadway classics. “I love interacting with an audience, and we’re able to do that with [Encore!] more than we are with The BG Singers,” says Silberman Scott, whose parents, Alan and Margaret, live in Glencoe. Alan attended Von Steuben High School in Chicago, while Margaret grew up in Detroit. “My dad has always been passionate about giving back to the community, with donations and with his time,” says Silberman Scott. “My mom went back to school to get her Ph.D. in psychology, when I was in junior high. Here I am, in my 40s, going back to school to earn a master’s degree and become a therapist. My mom and dad — great people, tremendous role models.” They watched an 11-year-old Lenna, making her stage debut, narrate Joseph and the Amazing Te c h n i c o l o r Dreamcoat at North Shore Synagogue Beth El in Highland Park.
