With the ability to connect with readers through our print and online products, in 2014 we chose to find a way to connect with readers on another level: face to face.

By offering events for our readers, we are able to connect not only with those who support our products but also provide advertisers and businesses an opportunity to do so.

Our publications are household names and are delivered by the United States Postal Service. We have won more than 130 awards from the Illinois Press Association and National Newspaper Association. 

We are now seeking a partnership with advertisers to connect with our communities. Once you decide to join us in this new endeavor of events and expos, you will have an invaluable member on your team to help you grow your market share and engage your future customer.

Join us at the North Shore Camp Expo!
