Yingling to host events for 62nd District

ROUND LAKE BEACH – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, has a number of events planned for constituents of his district.

Yingling is kicking off his summer outreach program by announcing his Iced Coffee and Conversation constituent meetup event from 10 to 11 a.m. June 9 at Somethings Brewing, 1126 E. Washington St., in downtown Grayslake.

Attendees will receive a complimentary cup of iced coffee and have a chance to speak with Yingling about state and local issues.

Yingling regularly hosts Coffee with Sam events at local coffee shops, restaurants and diners to give residents an opportunity to meet him in a casual, informal setting. The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required. To RSVP, contact his office at 847-231-6262 or

In order to be more accessible to all residents of the 62nd District, Yingling is hosting Satellite Office Hours from 10 a.m. to noon June 11 at the Wauconda Village Hall, 101 N. Main St.

Residents are invited to receive an update on the legislative session, voice their concerns regarding any state issues, and receive assistance navigating state government.

Back by popular demand, Yingling is partnering with the Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department to host his annual document shredding and prescription drug turn-in event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 23 at Grayslake North High School, 1925 N. Illinois 83 in Grayslake. 

The free event gives residents the opportunity to safely dispose of documents that contain personal information and any unwanted prescription drugs.

Residents must remove all staples and paper clips before arriving, and each car is limited to two bags or small boxes. The event will run until 1 p.m. or until the shredding truck reaches capacity. Participants will not be able to dispose of bags or boxes. 

Yingling represents the 62nd District, which includes portions of Gages Lake, Grayslake, Hainesville, Ingleside, the Round Lake communities, Wauconda and Wildwood.
