The big smiles on the faces of young and old as they walked through the doors of the Hendrickson Room for last weekend's LEGO train exhibit said it all. The exhibit, which drew 2,763 attendees, was a crowd pleaser for all ages. The attendance was 5% higher than in 2008 - the last time the train exhibit was here. The exhibit was put together by Northern Illinois LEGO Train Club members. Our next family event is Astronomy Night on Friday, October 15, at 7 p.m. in the Hendrickson Room. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs Solar System Ambassador Jim Kovac will present “Exoplanets: Worlds Beyond Our Solar System.” Then everyone is invited to go outside to the parking lot to look through powerful telescopes set up by members of the Northwest Suburban Astronomers Club. It's all free, and there's no registration.
