When Barrington Hills Village President Martin McLaughlin volunteered to participate in a dunk tank during the recent “The Hills are Alive Fall Festival,” he did so with a village police officer in mind.

Shortly after he situated himself in the dunk tank on Sept. 30., youngster Susie Bongiorno hit the target and dunked McLaughlin into the water below.

Proceeds this year from the dunk tank, as well as food and beverage sales during the village’s annual fall community festival, went to an ongoing effort to raise funds for Jeremy Hensler, a police officer in Barrington Hills who recently was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

“(Bongiorno) threw a strike. I coached her on our softball team,” McLaughlin said of the dunk tank experience, adding how an estimated crowd of 600 attended the festival. “We think that’s pretty good attendance for a village with 1,100 homes.”

But the featured element of Barrington Hills’ sixth annual fall festival was supporting Hensler, who also is a member of the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System — a group of suburban police departments in the Chicago area, officials said.

“He was one of our highest-trained, well-qualified officers,” McLaughlin said of Hensler.

McLaughlin said the Dunk Tank ended up generating about $500 in proceeds. Organizers also collected donations through vendors’ food and beverage sales at the event, he said. Timmerman’s Equestrian Drill Team, of Island Lake, also performed for the festivalgoers.

Other activities included a climbing rock wall, an interactive animal show and a make-your-own ice cream area, organizers said.

Released by the polo club today:

“We are sorry to report that this year’s LeCompte/Kalaway Cup has been canceled due to very heavy rain and unsafe field conditions for spectators and participants (equine and human). For the first time in fourteen years, the weather has caused us to run for cover. The Kalaway committee met at the field today. After seeing the flooded conditions, we determined that we cannot have the field and parking ready for this Saturday. There is no other choice but to cancel the event.

You are such a valuable part of the Kalaway, and many of you have been on-board for many years. We thank you for your continued support and hope you will participate on September 7, 2019!

If you have any questions about your ticket/tailgate reservation or sponsorship (all will be valid for 2019, consider it our rain date!), please email barringtonhillskalawaycup@gmail.com.”

Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 11.43.09 AM If you think the sport of polo is a game played among royalty and privileged blue bloods, think again.

The 14th annual LeCompte Kalaway Trail Owners Cup Polo Event returns Sept. 8 to Barrington Hills, and it features a host of family activities as well as two exciting polo matches.

“It’s Chicagoland’s largest and best-attended polo event,” says Karen Selman of Barrington Hills, who chairs the event this year.

For starters, the popular “Parade of Hounds” opens the event, with a pack of baying foxhounds flooding onto the polo field, only to have riders from the Fox River Valley Hunt Club, wearing their traditional red hunting coats, control them.

Equestrian fans also will get to see a demonstration of precision riding by Timmerman’s Mounted Drill Team, based in Island Lake, before they serve as color guard during the playing of the national anthem.

There’s even a ladies’ hat competition, as well as a prize for best tailgate. Children will enjoy riding in hay wagons provided by Patch 22 in Wadsworth, and seeing young riders from the Fox River Valley Pony Club demonstrate their skills.
