The Glencoe Departments of Public Works and Safety mingled with dozens of families this past Saturday, July 25, at their annual open house. 

The open house, which started 10 years ago, seeks to bring the public closer to its local servicemen. This is especially important in Glencoe, which is one of the only suburbs in Illinois to have a Public Safety system in which police, fire and paramedic services are all under one roof.
