Best face forward

Elburn trustee Jerry Schmidt spent the afternoon of May 19 planting geraniums and several other varieties of flowers in a concrete planter recently installed in front of Village Hall. Schmidt volunteered to buy and plant the flowers because he wanted to improve the appearance of Village Hall, 301 E. North St., often the first place a visitor goes in Elburn, he said. American Bank & Trust in downtown Elburn donated the planter, which it no longer used, and Blackberry Township employees helped transport it to Village Hall. Photo by Martha Quetsch
