 In 1917, with a population less than 700 and the world at war, the Village of Glenview welcomed the Bear that would become its symbol for all future generations. Beverly Dawson, Glenview history expert and author, will take us back to a time when our tiny hamlet was positioning itself to becoming the dynamic village we know today.

We also warmly invite you to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Jackman Bear, Sunday September 17, 1:30 PM. Join us at the Gazebo in Jackman Park (rain location: Glenview Public Library Community Room). Entertainment, speeches, and refreshments are planned for Bear Birthday Bash 100.
