Young Artist Featured in the Village Hall

Christopher Rohn is the 13 years old grand nephew to Anne Marie Berg, and lives in Morton Grove.  He has spent many happy summer days at McCullom Lake.  Splashing in the water before he could walk, building sand castles, jumping off the dock, and when he was old enough, steering a paddle boat on the lake.  He and his twin brother, Michael also celebrated several birthday parties in the old Village Hall.
Christopher has a talent for drawing, and was pleased when asked to draw something about McCullom Lake.  The poster is in the Village Hall.  Come and take a closer look, and be prepared to smile.  Thanks Christopher
