Thumbs up to Hinsdale teenagers Paden Guido and Meghan Callahan for performing with the Lollapalooza on Aug. 1 with the School of Rock AllStars. Guido and Callahan were two of 150 musicians chosen out of the 15,000 students in the School of Rock system nationwide to perform as part of the AllStars tour. As part of the tour, the girls performed at Chicago taverns and venues for nearly a week until they finally took the stage at Lollapalooza, with Callahan singing and Guido rocking out on the guitar and bass.
Thumbs up to former Illinois State Senator Kirk Dillard. After 20 years in the senate, the Hinsdale resident will leave his post to run the Regional Transportation Authority, which oversees Metra, Pace and the CTA. Thank you for your years of service to the 24th district, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
