- Fund raising benefit dinner was held Friday evening at Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette. The guests, members of First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette, police officials and social workers, gathered to raise money for the church's Fellowship Garden and community social service organizations.
On Feb. 28, church members Kathryn Wiley-Motes and her son, Christopher Motes, were murdered at home by her husband, Richard Wiley, who then killed himself. They lived in a house owned by the church. The house has been torn down and plans are underway to build a fellowhship garden in its place.
