First Quarterly Coffee Talk - Sept 12, 9:00 am at Starbucks!

As promised, I am posting the location of my first Quarterly Coffee Talk.

Starbucks - Lake in the HIlls
343 N. Randall Road
Lake in the Hills, IL

This is a very informal opportunity to meet and buy a coffee for any LITH residents who care to come and meet me.

I will be there at 9:00 and promise to stay for at least one hour (a little longer if we get some great dialouge going but need to leave by 11 at the latest - celebrating my first born's birthday later that afternoon)


I don't have any prepared remarks nor will I have a schedule - this is simply a chance to meet residents and hear from you - the Lake in the Hills constituents.

Coffee is on me.... regular or decaf fresh brewed Starbucks coffee. No fancies, please.

Hope to see you there!

Save the Date - Denise's Quarterly Coffee Talk - Saturday Sept 12 - 9:00 am

Hello Lake in the Hills!

Monday marked my first 100 days in office as a Lake in the Hills Village Board Trustee.

I can honestly say that it has been a lively 100 days.

While I am still learning and settling into office, I don't want to lose touch with the residents in the process. On the contrary, as I am forming my thoughts and views on issues, I want them to be in sync with what is most important to the people I serve. During the first part of 2009 - I spent every weekend on the doorsteps of residents - educating them about me and learning the issues important to them. Now that the residents of Lake in the Hills entrusted me with this role - I want to be sure that I interact with residents as often as possible.

That said, I want to ask that you SAVE THE DATE for Saturday September 12 at 9:00 am.

I will host my first Quarterly Coffee Talk. I have not arranged for location just yet but will do so this weekend and post all the details early next week. One thing I know is the coffee will be on me. Regular, fresh brewed coffee - not the latte, frappucino-types. You're welcome to come but I'm only buying for the old fashioned coffee drinkers like me. :)

I am not setting an agenda.

I will show up ready to drink coffee and listen.

Join me.

Tell your friends.
