Beating The Heat In Glenview; Real Feel Temps Could Hit 115

Trash pickup by Glenview’s waste hauler Groot was moved up one hour from its usual 6 a.m. starting time on Wednesday and Thursday (Aug. 23-24) to spare workers from the worst of an expected heat wave.
Meanwhile, Glenview Community Engagement Manager David Just said cots will be set up in the village hall community room for anyone needing relief from the heat. Village hall is always available as a cooling or heating center all year, Just added.
The National Weather Service said air temperatures would reach 96 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity Wednesday and Thursday creating “dangerously hot conditions with heat index values up to 110 to 115 (degrees) expected.”
A heat warning for Wednesday included most of Cook County, specifically local suburbs such as Evanston, Des Plaines, Schaumburg, Palatine and Northbrook.
Back at the Glenview cooling center, the main front doors to village hall will be locked during evening hours, but Just said visitors needing access to the cooling center can access village hall through the police department entrance to the building.
The North Shore Senior Center and Glenview Senior Services Coordinator Kim Hand also keep a list of vulnerable seniors who would be checked on during the heatwave.

According to the Glenview Park District, the Park Center will be open as a cooling center this week and next week if needed during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Along with the heat warning, Glenview School Dist. 34 starts classes Thursday. At Monday’s Dist. 34 school board meeting, Supt. Dane Delli said although all classrooms and school buildings have air conditioning in place, some of those units are temporary air conditioning units. He said some air conditioning ventilator units, ordered last January as part of the district-wide renovation and building addition project, did not arrive as scheduled.

Exhibition Opening – Chim: Between Devastation and Resurrection
David Seymour – better known as “Chim” — is widely remembered as the first human rights photographer. One of the cofounders of photojournalism’s famous cooperative Magnum Photos, Chim’s work was poignant and emphatic – transcending generations, making him one of the 20th century’s quintessential photographers.
Join Illinois Holocaust Museum for a special presentation by Carole Naggar and Ben Shneiderman to celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition, “Chim: Between Devastation and Resurrection,” which focuses on Seymour’s photographs of post-World War II reconstruction in Europe, European elections, the effect of the war on children, and the birth of the new State of Israel. Naggar is an author and photography historian who has studied Chim’s life and work for decades. Her long-awaited biography, David ‘Chim’ Seymour: Searching for the Light, 1911-1956, will be released this fall. Shneiderman, a distinguished university professor, and Chim’s nephew, will open the program with a monologue about his uncle’s life and work.
On-site guests are invited to come to the Museum prior to our start time to explore the new exhibition.
