Another Way We Are Helping in the Community

"When RE/MAX was founded in the early 1970s, we were among the few major networks welcoming women into the real estate business. And now, after 30+ years of growth, much of what we've accomplished would not have been possible had it not been for the women of RE/MAX.

So when RE/MAX joined forces with Susan G. Komen for the Cure in 2001, it was a natural fit. It was a way for us to say "thank you" for all that women have done for us. The fight against breast cancer hits close to home for the RE/MAX family. More than a few of our members have faced the disease - and sadly, some have lost the battle. And as a breast cancer survivor myself, I know full well how it forever impacts those afflicted, as well as their families, friends and colleagues.

Lives are saved each day because of the work by Komen for the Cure. And it indeed warms my heart to see the thousands of RE/MAX Affiliates donating their time, effort and money to support such a noble cause as the Komen organization."

Living Here is a 'Bang!'

Looking for ways to celebrate the Fourth of July? Well, look no further than here. Our office is located in Rolling Meadows, and we are happy to report that there are a myriad of activities and firework displays that will light up the sky in a town near you!

Arlington Heights will hold their annual Frontier Days, a tradition that dates back to 1976! The festival kicks off with a parade at 10:00 a.m. and the Arlington Racetrack will open at 11:15 a.m. Reserve your seat for the evening's firework display, presented by LaSalle Bank, for five dollars or come and find seats for free at your leisure. Fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m.

The City of Rolling Meadows will also begin their festivities with a parade, as well. The parade will begin at 11:30 a.m., and the grand marshall will be Iraq war veteran and local war hero, Bryan Anderson. Fireworks will light up the sky over Salk Park.

Navy Pier in Chicago will also hold their annual firework display. As always, admission is free!

Now you have no good reason to celebrate the Fourth of July. There is a bevy of celebrations across the Chicagoland area. Visit CBS 2 for more information and a comprehensive list of towns and addresses for the various fireworks' displays.

Remember, celebrate safely!
