Why don't you get on the planning committee and get the bands you want.

There are many events put on by "Northbrook" that are really put on by volunteers. Those of us who put our time and effort in do it because we love our community. Instead of complaining, why not volunteer and make a difference?

No bingo?????
JJH August 03, 2012 at 09:36 PM
The previous chairs retired after many years, and no one stepped forward to run the Bingo. No volunteers = NO BINGO.

Thanks to the Patch for posting the "real" schedule. Northbrook only posted the band and special events schedule and of course sponsors. The didn't mention when the Days actually opened. Thanks!
