8 | February 16, 2017 | The glencoe anchor news Calling all adventure seekers Hercules The Hirschfield Family My name is Hercules. I’m a 9-year-old Goldendoodle, more Golden than Doodle. No formal education, but I can sit on command if I feel like it. I love the Pup- Peroni in the bench outside Mara’s Salon. They also do a nice chicken chew. Should I jump on you when I meet you, don’t be alarmed. My therapist says I’m a pleaser. Every Halloween, my owners dress me up in a costume. (Note to all owners: we don’t “love it!” as much as you.) Thank goodness for keypads or this article would be illegible. My handwriting is terrible. (P.S. Still single, ladies!) HELP! The Glencoe Anchor is in search of more pets.

To help prepare North Shore families to find the best summer camps for their children, 22nd Century Media, the parent company of The Glencoe Anchor, is proud to host its third annual free Camp Expo on Saturday, Feb. 25, at Sunset Ridge School, 525 Sunset Ridge Road in Northfield. The Camp Expo, sponsored by Lake Forest’s Banner Day Camp, gives various camps, from day camps to overnight camps across the Midwest, the opportunity to meet with potential campers and their families to meet with an array of area businesses catering to the needs of young adventurists. From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., eventgoers will have the chance to visit more than 40 vendor booths and participate in interactive activities designed for children of all ages. Fun activities include face painting, a balloon artist, camp games and prizes, and light refreshments. Additionally, popular Glencoe and Winnetka grocer The Grand Food Center will be sponsoring a free make-your-owntrail-mix station for kids to practice making their own Charles Jackson, of Glencoe, plays Jenga at 22nd Century Media’s Camp Expo last year. 22nd Century Media File Photo hearty camp snacks. Heather Warthen, chief operating officer for 22nd Century Media, said the company began hosting the event after discovering a need for an all-inone event to prepare North Shore families for summer break and the many local opportunities for kids. “We know that a lot of our readers themselves have attended these camps and now their kids attend the camps, so a couple of years ago, we decided that we should try it out as an expo,” Warthen said. The Camp Expo offers networking opportunities for a variety of camps serving the most seasoned of campers to the youngest tykes. “It serves as a chance for campers to meet up with their camps before camp starts in the summer, and it also gives people who have never gone to camp the chance to look for the right fit,” Warthen said. “It’s a good opportunity to ask questions and great face time with the camps, because a lot of them will have their staffers and owners themselves come out for these events.” 22CM CAMP EXPO 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25 Sunset Ridge School 525 Sunset Ridge Road, Northfield (847) 272-4565 www.22ndcentury CAMP EXPO VENDORS Day camps Actors Training Center AYSO Region 425 Banner Day Camp Decoma Day Camp Discovery Day Camp Fonseca Martial Arts Galileo Innovation Camps Game On!
