Letter: Elburn fireworks still needs help

By on May 13, 2010

The Elburn Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who made the Pork Chop Dinner on March 31 such a great success. Through the generosity of the Elburn Community and its friends, we were able to raise just under $1,400 which will go towards the Day in the Park fireworks display for this year. Through the 540 tickets sold, we were also able to donate 41 meal tickets to the Elburn Food Pantry.

At this point the chamber has reached their half-way point of the $10,000 goal. So it will take a joint effort of the community and the businesses to keep Day in the Park alive. We only have two months left, and could really use your help.

The next Pork Chop Dinner will be on Wednesday, June 23, with pick-up from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Elburn Lions Park, 500 Filmore St., Elburn. Tickets are available now at the chamber and select Elburn businesses for $12 each. Our goal for this dinner is 800 tickets, and I think with your help, we can easily reach that goal.

All profits go towards the fireworks. If you are unable to purchase Pork Chop Dinner tickets, but would like to donate money, please call the Chamber office.

Every little bit helps.

We are also looking for volunteers to join the Day in the Park committee as well. It is a great way to share ideas for fundraising ideas, or volunteer your time. The next Day in the Park meeting, will be at noon on Monday, June 7, at American Bank and Trust in downtown Elburn. Anyone interested in joining should e-mail me at ads@elburnherald.com or call (630) 365-6446.

The Elburn Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer-driven organization committed to serving local businesses and helping to foster a spirit of community in the Elburn area.
