charlie pecaro

mayor

Welcome to Highwood! Not only is Highwood the Gem of the Northshore nestled oh

so cozy between Highland Park and Lake Forest. With it being such a diverse community. In less than

a square mile, whether you are in need to groceries, a last-minute place for dinner, or shoe repair, you

can get that all here! We have over 40 restaurants to satisfy just about every taste. What makes the

restaurant experience is that most of them are family owned, they know your name, and you feel like

you are dinning with family. Being Mayor of Highwood now in my 3rd term, I am confident that with

the City Council, we will continue to grow as a better community with an even stronger infrastructure.

Also, we have a whole new wave of businesses coming here such as new breweries and distilleries.

Once the renovation of the old Hotel Moraine is completed, there should be approximately 55 rooms

for assisted living, a 25,000-square foot grocery store, and a restaurant. With the crime rate for Highwood

being the lowest for the surrounding suburbs, our police department continues to keep our

streets safe where you can raise a family in confidence.

welcome! from the president

Choose Highwood for its walkable streets, mix of

housing and commercial properties, public transportation

and, of course, its dynamic downtown

vibe. Hang out with the “Joneses” at one of Highwood’s many

local restaurants, entertainment venues or events.

Just over 400 acres in size, Highwood can be compared to many

big cities with its culture, diversity, events and amenities. When

the warm weather sets in, the streets and parks come alive with

people socializing outdoors at their favorite pub or gathering at

one of Highwood’s many festivals.

George Markoutsas

President- The ABL Group

As a Chamber, we are proud to have been a part of helping to

create this dynamic vibe, but now it’s time to shift our focus back to our roots and pass the torch. Celebrate

Highwood (celebratehighwood.com), a newly formed community organization, will take over these traditions,

while we set our sights on working with the local business professionals.

In 2017 the Chamber is renewing itself to promote and stimulate partnerships and growth between area

organizations and working to create and deliver member value through engagement. This includes hosting

regular morning and evening professional networking events, developing peer to peer groups, providing

education and advocating for our member businesses. We will continue to build on our special events such

as “Girls Night Out” and “Highwood Wine and Beer Walk” that promote our eclectic mix of downtown businesses

and drive business into their stores.

We invite you to take a closer look at your Chamber and everything it has to offer. We hope you will join us

and Choose Highwood.

HIGHWOD PUBLIC LIBRARY – Lucy HospodaskY — As a Highwood resident for 17 years, I have had the pleasure of being both

a witness to and a participant in the revitalization of what has become a gem of a town. Our hardworking city alderman past and

present, administration, business owners, and Mayors have created a lively town that attracts people from surrounding communities

to enjoy a diverse offering of quality restaurants, music venues, and unique events. From painted benches, to carved pumpkins,

to art fairs, and weekly summer festivals, Highwood is a destination to visit with friends and family. And for those of us who call it

Quigley of Chicago.

In the past 105 years, St James has gone thru several renovations and additions ranging in costs

of $150,000.00 to $250,000.00.

St James School opened in 1925 and was run by the Sisters of Loretto, until there was a shortage

and the nuns were replaced with the Sisters of Notre Dame.

The present Pastor Rev Thomas Baldoieri was assigned as pastor in 2007. Since his placement,

there have been generous donations made by the families of Dante and Linda Amidie, along

with Ernest and Virginia Gherardini to which the Parish Hall was renovated in 2010. Fr Baldonieri

has also implemented a food pantry to serve the St James Parish and surrounding communities.

thoracic and lung, hematology, breast, ovarian, head and neck,

melanoma and sarcoma, gastrointestinal, prostate and stomach.

Highland Park Hospital is a Joint Commission certified Primary

Stroke Center—providing an acute stroke team 24 hours a day,

seven days a week for rapid diagnosis and treatment. The Emergency

Department at Highland Park Hospital acts as the region’s

“pod” hospital for disaster-response activities, coordinating Lake

County’s efforts when confronted with a disaster. The Pediatric

Preparation Program helps to familiarize young patients with the

hospital environment through hospital tours and play sessions

prior to surgery provided by, for example, our Plastic Surgery and

Ear Nose and Throat pediatric specialists.

Our Mission

The core mission of NorthShore University HealthSystem is to

“preserve and improve human life.” This mission will be achieved

through the provision of superior clinical care, academic excellence

and innovative research.

NorthShore is a not-for-profit organization principally formed to

provide quality healthcare services for the communities it serves. The

delivery of healthcare services is provided in a wide range of inpatient

and ambulatory healthcare settings, community-wide, employing

modern technology and expertise. Support for qualified patients who

may not be able to pay the entire cost of their care is a part of the organization’s

commitment. In support of its primary mission of patient

care, the organization engages in a wide range of academic activities

in medical education and research.

This statement recognizes the Board of Directors’ responsibility to

maintain the organization’s viability to meet its long-term commitment

to the communities it serves. It further recognizes the responsibility

to maintain technologically current assets for this purpose.

This includes the cultivation and development of our physicians,

graduate medical students, employees, physical plant, equipment

and other resources to assure orderly growth of our services.
