December marked the 25th anniversary of The Centre Club at Condell. There are 4 women (Linda Kraemer, Maggie Gonring, Rhoni Ross-Bast and Martha Cournoyer) who have provided superlative group instruction in a variety of classes (e.g., yoga, muscle-works, spin, ski-preparation, step and Bike/Buff/Balance, etc.) over the course of all 25 of those years. Through instruction and example, I cannot fathom how many people they have helped to have better lives. I view this foursome as Libertyville Persons of the Year.

I would nominate someone truly worthy....how about the teacher that worked with NASA this year...Mark Buesing. Not only did he put Libertyville on the map...he brought legit science to his high school. His level of enthusiasm in a public school sector is truly admirable. And from all accounts...he's a great person!
