Goodness abounds in the North Shore community.

The caring by many recently became evident when Conrad Wolski, 82, a crossing guard at Wilmette’s Thornwood and Hunter roads for the past 16 years, was in an automobile accident that totaled his 13-year-old car. 

“He was worried he would no longer have a way to get to work,” said Aimee Prunier Stoltz, one of the neighbors whose daughter Wolski crosses twice a day on her way to and from Wilmette’s Harper School as he did for her older son.
