    Since there is this little corner set aside on this forum for us let's get to know our fellow Illinois members.

    What Part of Illinois are your from? (list whatever you want county, city, village....etc)

    Me personally..... started out in the City about 30 years ago (55th and Troy) to be exact. After that the parents moved us to the SW Burbs. Now that I have my own family I call Lockport home.

    How bout you folks......

    I was born in the city of Chicago but moved out about 4 years ago...:whistling:

    I'm currently living near Melrose Park, about 10 minutes from Dupage County, where the taxes are way less than Cook County...:steamed:

    The FD is still there but they may move soon also from my understanding. I spent a many days on Lowe growing up. Fond memories of talking to the CPD guys assigned to Ma Daleys house and watching ball games on TV with my grandfather. When the Sox would hit a Home Run we would run down to the corner to watch the fireworks...... Great memories!
