Letter: A thank you to the community

The Elburn Leo Club and Elburn Lions Club recently hosted a joint fundraiser to help offset the expense of a multipurpose service dog that we purchased for local resident Kara Peters. The generosity of everyone involved and the community support that was given was tremendous.

We truly appreciate the generosity of the businesses and individuals that donated items for raffle prizes, as well as a silent auction. We were able to raise thousands of dollars due to your donations.
