This week's cover - Slip slidin' away

Hinsdale's Trinity Church held a block party Aug. 27 to celebrate the close of summer. The free party included plenty of award-winning barbecue and side dishes from Tommy R's and desserts. With a DJ and a large bouncy house, the event was a perfect way to salute the end of the season. Lane Platts and Charlotte Gragnolati loved running up and sliding down the slide.
