Longtime Glencoe resident Madeleine Plonsker entered her love story to The Glencoe Anchor’s How We Met Contest and instantly captured our hearts.
Madeleine and her husband Harvey met in 1947 but didn’t really end up speaking until high school at New Trier; however, it was happily ever after when he asked to her to senior prom.
