Lake Barrington has dedicated the Freier Farm gazebo in honor of former village president Connie Schofield and her husband, both of whom died in 2017.
Schofield was village president from 1997 to 2005 and served as trustee from 1991 to 1997 and again from 2009 to 2016. She and her husband, Tom, were known for their efforts to help create a community known for prosperous, countryside living.
Connie Schofield also is remembered for leading the design and construction efforts of the village's recreational and open space facilities at Freier Farm.
"The village is extremely grateful to all Connie and Tom have contributed to Lake Barrington, and we are proud to dedicate the Freier Farm gazebo in honor of their memory," Village President Kevin Richardson said.
