- Cranberry Orange Dark Chocolate Flatbread. With her development of that recipe, Arlene Erlbach of Morton Grove has been selected a finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off. On the weekend of November 10, she and 99 other contestants will parade, two by two, into a swanky Las Vegas hotel ballroom in the Grand March. Then they'll take up their stations at their mini kitchens and have about three hours to make their recipes three times. "Our best shot we give to the judges. The other two are for a display," Erlbach said. In a few days she'll receive a very specific list of groceries and equipment to order. The previous time she made the finals, she needed two eggs, and asked what would happen if she broke one by accident. The answer: no extra eggs allowed.
- Students from local schools are coming to Morton Grove Village Hall for Student Government Day, an event aimed at educating students on the process and personnel of local government. From 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, the mayor and village trustees will work with these students in an interactive presentation that answers the question – “what does local government do?” Events for the day include a tour of the Mayor’s office, presentation by village department heads, a student workshop and tour of public works equipment, squad cars and fire engines.
- There's a Flu Shot Clinic for Morton Grove residents from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Civic Center on Dempster.
