Guest Editorial: Thank you for a successful Elburn Days Festival

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the community for supporting our 82nd Elburn Days Festival, which took place Aug. 19-21, at Elburn Lions Park.

In these difficult economic times, any upswing is well noted, and I am proud to say that this event drew more attendees than last year. Thank you so much.

It is always wonderful to see how the community comes together for this event. May it be for the parade, the rides, the food, the music, the community stage performances, the 4-H display, the Boy Scout breakfast, the 5-K run, the tractor pull, the R/C racing car and truck demonstrations, the mud volley ball, or the beer garden.

The Elburn Lions have something for everyone during Elburn Days and we Lions aim to please.

A thank you goes out to all of our wonderful sponsors: A-1 Concrete Leveling & Foundation Repair, American Bank & Trust Co., Bob Jass Chevrolet, Collision Centers of America, Computer Network Management, LLC., Country Automotive, Inc., Daily Herald, Delnor Hospital, Dr. Harry Krauspe, DDS, Drs .Horton & Vranas, DDS, Elburn Cooperative Co., Elburn Chamber of Commerce, Elburn Herald, Elburn Market, Inc., Elburn Radiator & Repair, Eyes on Elburn, Ltd., Fifth Third Bank, Fleck & Uhlich, Ltd., G.
