Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday for the 6th Annual Wine and Art Stroll. It was a beautiful day and everyone seemed to have a good time. We tried some new things out — especially with the check-in system — and I think most of it worked. I’d like to thank the 20+ volunteers helping to make your experience the best it could be, plus our sponsor Shaw Media (who run the Lake County Journal, Gurnee Life, and Great Lakes Bulletin) and WRLR, who rocked the CLC courtyard.
We’re gathering feedback for our “postmortem,” so that next year can continue to get better. We’d appreciate any feedback you’d like to give — email me at email@example.com. Thanks!

On June 25th, 2013 Lake Forest Hospital had their annual “Employee Discount Day”. We accepted their invitation to attend and sent our Administrative Assistant, Juan Garcia, to represent Waukegan Main Street. For the employee discount day we had Brendan Alviani our Promotions Committee Chair work with Little Fort Media to produce the discount flyers to hand out. The flyers are two sided and printed on flourescent colors such as yellow, pink, orange, and green. This allowed them to “pop” against the blue table cover. The event was between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Juan was able to speak with 200 employees over the course of the day. The idea was to promote the downtown area, the monthly ArtWauk, the art galleries, theaters, and live entertainment. Interestingly many of the employees, with exception of a few, resided in Waukegan. Some of the individuals were not aware that so much was happening in downtown and that we had a monthly ArtWauk. Some had already attended and ArtWauk and were very pleased to have participated. All in all, 200 flyers were passed out and everyone was invited to eat, shop and play in Downtown Waukegan.
