Daring to be different

The Hinsdale Police Department hosted a D.A.R.E lock-in recently at Hinsdale Middle School. With kids attending from Hinsdale, Oak Brook and Burr Ridge, along with officers from each police department, the evening event offered plenty to keep everyone busy. Some of the events were school-against-school tug of war, a Jell-O eating contest, games, a mechanical bull, a magician and a face painter. And there was plenty of pizza and snacks, too.
