Villa Park resident June May Kortum's new nonprofit, The Gathering Lighthouse, in downtown Lombard focuses on helping people live positive lives.

THUMBS UP: June Kortum of Villa Park is on a mission to help people get their lives back on track through spiritual and emotional counseling. Kortum recently opened The Gathering Lighthouse in Lombard. The nonprofit is open to the public and strictly donation-based, meaning there's no fee structure. Good luck in the new venture.

THUMBS UP: This one goes out to the volunteers at the Villa Park Historical Society museum. Their vast knowledge of the village, along with their willingness to spend hours with Suburban Life staff, allowed us to put together our Villa Park Centennial Celebration special section in this week's paper. Thanks for all of your help.
