Letter: A thank you from the Elburn Chamber

By on February 13, 2014

If you were not at Lion’s Park on Saturday, Feb. 8, you missed out on a great evening. The annual Elburn Chamber of Commerce Winter Dinner and Silent Auction was a great success, and I do believe a good time was had by all.

I want to thank the Winter Dinner committee of Leslie Flint (Elburn Herald) and Kristen Damolaris (Elburn & Countryside Community Center) and their beautiful assistants Annette Theobald (Paisano’s Pizza & Grill/Eddie Gaedel Pub & Grill), Carrie Murphy (Edward Jones—Dan Murphy office) and Peg Bendowski (Elburn Chamber).

We had beautiful music provided by Da Capo Music Studio. The amazing Andrew Almburg provided auctioneer services for several delightful desserts. We had a variety of “derby hats” for the hat judging competition, and we had over 20 silent auction baskets to bid on.

As you are all well aware, without the generosity of time from these volunteers, this event and the others we support and sponsor would not be possible. Please keep an open mind, and if you are interested in becoming more involved, please step up and join a committee.

Karen A. Park
Elburn Chamber of Commerce President
