Area seniors are invited to join Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin at the village's Autumn Senior Coffee on Thursday, October 25 at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 South Ravinia Avenue. The free event will be held from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.

"We invite seniors to join us for coffee and refreshments each fall and spring," said Mayor Dan McLaughlin. "This is always a nice event as we bring in guest speakers to share information of interest to seniors," the mayor said.

This fall's guest speaker is WGN TV News Anchor/Reporter Robin Baumgarten. She will be discussing what it is like behind the scenes working at the WGN studio. Robin will also take questions from the audience.

"We're excited to have WGN's Robin Baumgarten joining us on October 25," McLaughlin said. "Many people watch her on the WGN TV Morning News and it will be nice for people to meet her in person," he added.

The two time Emmy Award winning Baumgarten co-anchors the WGN Morning News, having joined the show in 1996 as air traffic and transportation reporter. A lifelong Chicagoan, Robin received a Bachelor's Degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
