A fire engulfed and burned through the historic Woman’s Club of Wilmette throughout the day Tuesday, Feb. 17.
At 9:44 that morning, Wilmette Fire Department personnel responded to the blaze, which quickly destroyed the south end’s second floor and the apartment lived in by the club’s caretaker, Mark Loendorf, and his family.
Loendorf was working on the first floor when he heard the smoke alarm and went upstairs to witness flames coming from a bedroom, where he said a space heater was running.
Five minutes was all it took for Wilmette’s Kevin Quinn to break into the national television scene.
The short audition of rehearsing lines in front of a director, casting director and producer four weeks ago led the rising New Trier High School senior to a role he never imagined landing — a leading spot on NBC’s hit show “Chicago PD.”
“I walked out feeling confident,” Quinn said. “Gigs come every so often, so it’s important to keep my head up high.”
Following being surprised with a personalized jersey and letter from Patrick Kane, Travis Tassone got his biggest surprise yet – meeting his hero in person.
Back in the beginning of March, Tassone, a Glenview resident, was surprised with a Patrick Kane jersey personalized with his last name and signed by Kane, as well as a letter written to him, through Our Place, a Wilmette organization for adults with disabilities.
According to Tassone’s mom, Vickie Tassone, he wanted to write a thank you note to Kane for the items he had received.
