The new motto of our Villages should be “out with the old, and in with the new,” or perhaps” trading spaces.” The comings and goings of our business community experienced dramatic change in 2016, and 2017 looks to be no exception. Retirements and new locations are natural transitions in a business’ life. Notably, we bid fond farewell to T. L. Fritts Sporting Goods, Jean Wright Real Estate, O’Neil’s, Mrs. Green’s Natural Market, Hubbard Woods Motors, Fred’s Winnetka Service Station and Kraft Foods. On the flip side, neapolitan’s restoration of the Fritts building is absolutely beautiful; Medline has moved into the Kraft space along with its 1,800 employees; Fred’s Winnetka relocated to become Fred’s Northfield. Two new restaurants are scheduled to open in the spaces previously occupied by Fred’s Winnetka and Hubbard Woods Motors. Phototronics moved from East Elm to Hubbards Woods. Mirani’s has moved from Elm Street to Lincoln Avenue. The cycle continues. And we welcome new Lakeside Food owners Cheng and Tinny Koh who will continue the 59-year tradition of excellence in Winnetka. We also welcomed two new eating establishments: Stacked and Folded on Lincoln Avenue and Avli Rotisserie on Chestnut Street in Winnetka … both are delicious! The completion of the Willow Road project in Northfield brought back many customers to Northfield’s excellent shopping and eight (that’s right…eight!) restaurants. And if you haven’t seen the renovations at The Grand Food Center, drop by, you will be amazed! Our park districts continue to grow and renovate for the enjoyment of our communities. Northfield Park District added a state-of-the-art recreation center on Willow Road. Winnetka Park District completed the sensational re model of Hubbard Woods Park. Dwyer Park is scheduled for a makeover this spring. The kick-off of the lakefront master plan is on the horizon. Perhaps the biggest story of the past year and 2017 is the long-anticipated development of the One Winnetka project on Lincoln Avenue and Elm Street in Winnetka. In January, the Winnetka Village Council green-lighted the planned development after a 2 1/2 year approval process. Groundbreaking for the project, renamed as The WINN, should commence this summer. The WINN will bring new business, new residents and new vitality to the Village. Throughout the year your Chamber of Commerce sponsors and supports events to enhance the quality of life for our residents and serve our business community. This year is no exception. The first annual Winnetka Music Festival will be launched on Friday, June 23, and Saturday, June 24. Music … around every corner. The festival is about finding and connecting to new outstanding music across genres. Veterans of the music industry and community volunteers have planned a “once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Please join the Winnetka Music Festival, Valslist, Village of Winnetka, Winnetka Park District, the Chamber of Commerce, WXRT and our many sponsors on the ground floor! See winnetkamusicfestival.com for updates. As always, please support our local merchants and businesses all through 2017. Attend any number of fun and social events in our communities. The Hubbard Woods Design District stages after-hours events up and down Green Bay Road. The 41st Annual Recognition Lunch on April 12 says “thank you” to our leading citizens. The Northfield Farmers Market — celebrating its 40th year — brings us fresh fruits and vegetables for 21 straight Saturdays, May through October. The July Sidewalk Sale presents steals and deals from the North Shore’s finest retailers. Rib Fest in Northfield is a September blast. Sip and shop at the East Elm Wine Walk. The December holidays shine bright with Tree Lightings, Santa visits, carriage rides and family activities. Our Red Invitation Holiday Sale — Dec. 3 — makes 60093 the shopping destination of the season. With your partnership 2017 will be the best ever. Thriving businesses. Vibrant communities. We are a team. Now go out there and enjoy! Sincerely, Rockey Flintermann, President Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce

WHY WE LOVE TO CALL THIS ‘BEAUTIFUL LAND’ HOME “Beautiful land,” the Native American name for Winnetka, lives up to its name. The Village is nestled along Lake Michigan’s gorgeous shoreline, and is home to thick trees, a rolling ravine and spectacular open spaces. Ask any Winnetkan what they love about their hometown and you will hear: We love our parks. More than 25 parks encompass more than 240 acres. Whether picnicking or renting paddle boards, Winnetkans love spending time at their parks and glistening beaches, abuzz with swimming, sunning, boating and pure enjoyment. “The Winnetka Park District facilities, programs and events are the heart of this community,” says Park Board President Ian Larkin. Nearly every young person raised here fondly recalls time spent at a Park District summer camp, in a class or on one of many “House League” sports teams. We’re serious about education. Whether they attend one of the Village’s public, private or parochial schools, Winnetkans are a “Community of Learners.” Winnetka is a national leader in progressive education. Families have long flocked here for our wonderful schools that strive to create lifelong learners and fully engage students in the process. “We are fortunate to have a community that is extremely active in our schools, supporting and challenging our learners to reach their highest limits,” says Dr. Trish Kocanda, superintendent of the Winnetka Public Schools. We roll up their sleeves and get involved. Consider this: There are nearly 50 nonprofits headquartered in Winnetka and Northfield alone, supporting everything from arts and culture to social services and youth as well as civic organizations. “It speaks to the benevolence of this community as its citizens recognize the importance of volunteerism,” says Barb Tubekis, executive director of The Volunteer Center of NE Metro Chicago.

We support unique business districts. Our local businesses offer something for everyone.“Whether you are looking to shop at one of our many specialty boutiques, enjoy a one-of-a-kind dining experience or relax at a café, there is so much to discover in Winnetka’s business districts,” says Village Manager Robert Bahan. “Research has proven that small-scale, locally owned businesses create communities that are more prosperous, entrepreneurial and connected,” says Terry Dason, executive director of the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce. “In an increasingly homogenized world, our communities stand out with their one-ofa-kind businesses. We are all about family and time-honored traditions. A Memorial Day parade and observance; the Children’s Fair on the Village Green; the Fourth of July parade, family relays and a fireworks extravaganza; the Village Tree and Menorah Lighting: There are festivals for every season, including the newest Winnetka Music Festival scheduled for June 23-24, 2017. Friends and families who learn, play, give and grow together. That is Winnetka.

NORTHFIELD A CLOSE-KNIT COMMUNITY TO CALL HOME BY JANE GOLDENBERG
Northfield is a small town with a rural character and down-home friendliness with big city sophistication. Oh, and it is also a bustling crossroads in the center of the North Shore with popular restaurants, lovely boutiques and great shopping for everything from cars to cakes. We’re also the town with the great little government that delivers top-notch services with a smile. The perfect place to live and work, longtime residents agree. And so do our businesses, as our consistent near-zero vacancy rate and the quick attainment of our newest corporate resident Medline attest. From some of our longtime residents, we often hear comments like those from Jeanne and Pat Doherty, who have lived in Northfield for more than 40 years: “It’s the people, first of all, plus the lifestyle, the schools and the comfortable, small town atmosphere.” “Northfield is a welcoming, close-knit community in the midst of a large metropolis,” says another longtime resident. “It enjoys a warmth and intimacy often lost in larger communities.” All around, we’re fortunate to call Northfield home. Since incorporation in 1927, our little town has capitalized on its fantastic location only 20 miles from the Loop and 25 minutes to O’Hare International Airport. “Location, location, location,” touts a local business owner. “Because of that, my business has attracted customers from Winnetka, Glenview, Kenilworth, Northbrook, Glencoe and Highland Park, and Northfield, of course.” Unlike most other towns our size (Northfield’s population is 5,482), we enjoy not one but two of the highest ranked school districts in the state serving kindergarten through eighth grade,
Sunset Ridge School District 29 and Avoca School District 37, plus New Trier High School, often mentioned as one of the best high schools in the country. And now we’re getting a brand new Sunset Ridge School with state-of-the-art design for education, as well as green building standards. We increasingly emphasize green planning in our village policies as well. We have a great new composting program with Waste Management, are developing green stormwater strategies and, in our new Village Center infrastructure planning, we are prioritizing pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as auto safety, so our residents can safely walk across town to their favorite shops. We can already see the impact in a far more walkable Willow Road. Working together with Cook County, we’re currently planning a new safer, more walkable Happ Road as well. Northfield boasts one of the most luxe boutique public fitness centers in the area at the recently expanded Northfield Community Center. If you haven’t taken a look, by all means drop in at the corner of Wagner and Willow. All Northfield residents have resident status, and nonresidents are welcome, too. We have, in addition, a group of engaged community organizations from our churches and synagogues to our social service groups, most famously the North Shore Senior Center, which has been expanding its capacity and services to meet robust demand. As noted in last year’s article, “We’re like the bar in the television show, ‘Cheers,’ where everybody knows your name.” While we were speaking metaphorically, Northfield literally has a couple of those bars in town! When you walk into one of our wonderful local restaurants or bars, you’ll likely see a neighbor you know and know you’re home. winnetkanorthfieldchamber.com

NORTHFIELD A CLOSER LOOK
Northfield is the best of both worlds: a thriving, desirable suburb and a village with hometown charm. Incorporated in 1927, the village is located 20 miles from the heart of Chicago’s Loop. With a population of approximately 5,600, Northfield attracts those looking for a small-town way of life with a close proximity to a large city. When the village was incorporated, a commitment was made to protect open spaces. This commitment continues today as the village successfully balances that prized open space with commercial development. Northfield has more than 30 acres of open parkland that includes a bird sanctuary. The village is one of the few suburbs that issues licenses for boarding horses. The Village of Northfield is a warm family-orientated community with scenic
properties, an outstanding school system and a wonderful mix of businesses. The Edens Expressway (I-94) is east of Northfield and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) is less than four miles west of Northfield.
BUSINESS, SHOPPING AND DINING Northfield is proud to be the world headquarters of Stepan Company. There are many service-orientated business as well as The Fields Auto Group.

BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR HOME SIMPLE UPDATES THAT MAKE A BIG IMPACT BY WILL MENDELSON
One of the easiest and most impactful ways to breathe new life into a home is, as interior designer Susan Kroeger puts it, “accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.” Kroeger, owner of Susan Kroeger Ltd. in Winnetka, emphasizes that even if one’s home is old, it’s easy to update it to make it feel new again. “If you have a lot of old things, make it feel more current by accessorizing,” she explains. “Change wall colors, re-upholster some of the furniture. Change the rug. Changing a single item can make a huge impact without redoing everything in your home.” Accessorizing not only makes a home feel new again, but it also creates a sense of happiness and relaxation, Kroeger adds. “People love a more relaxed home and a certain amount 20 BEST OF 60093
of freshness,” she says. “That will make you happy in your home. Add a few accessories that you love, and every time you look at it, it will make you smile. That’s the recipe for a happy home.” Another easy way to update your home is to simply play with color, as Paul Zurowski, a partner at Sawbridge Studios in Winnetka, puts it. He recommends beginning with changing a wall color. “Wall color is a great way to kick-start a revitalization project,” Zurowski says. “It’s also relatively inexpensive. Don’t be afraid to go bold with a single accent wall. But, temper it with more muted tones on the other walls. Then tie it all together with white woodwork.” And if you decide you don’t like the new color? “It’s only paint!” Zurowski adds. “If something about the finished product bothers you, re-paint it.” Sawbridge offers its customers a variety of unique wood pieces to choose from, and there’s one wood color that Zurowski says will never go out of style. “For the last 15 years, cherry wood has been very popular,” he says. “It has a warm tone to it. My belief is that you can mix all different kinds of woods in a room because they’re all warm colors.”

Home is where the heart is, and as any interior designer will tell you, your heart should be in your home. But what exactly does that mean? Even if you’ve lived in your home for years, it can feel wonderful to do things periodically to make it feel new, to get excited again to live in it, entertain in it and create memories in it. One of the most important things you can do as a homeowner is put your heart into keeping your home a fresh and vibrant place that you love returning to.
Besides color, Zurowski says there’s one crucial way to refresh your home, and it’s by simply listening to what your heart is telling you. “If you trust your gut, all the things that you love come together and your house becomes a statement about you,” he says. Cindy Bardes Galvin, owner of Maze Home in Winnetka, shares Zurowski’s belief that it is so important to put your heart into your home. A good starting point in any new interior design project is to find that special something in your house that you treasure. “Find something you love, like a rug, antique chest or piece of art, and build your room around it,” Galvin suggests. “It could be a piece you’ve had for years that’s been overlooked design-wise, or something as simple as a vase filled with your favorite flowers. Use that favorite painting as a jumping off point and make it a little jewel box that’s warm, welcoming and a refection of you.” Maureen McDougall, an interior designer with MMint Interiors in Winnetka, echoes the sentiment that not only is it important to make sure your home is a space that makes you happy, but highlights how simple it can be. Where does she suggest you start? Just look to the light, she says.

“The main focus in decorating or redesigning spaces within your home is you want it to be inviting,” she emphasizes. “Staging a space properly and letting the light shine in will brighten any living area.” So whether you’re a new homeowner, recent empty nester or just want to make your home feel new again, all it takes is a little imagination and creativity. Just follow your instincts — and, most importantly, your heart. Read more at MAKEITBETTER.NET/HOME
