Letter: Make some memories at Elburn Days 2014

By on August 15, 2014

As the summer winds to a close, we can look back at some mild weather and hopefully some good times. Whether this summer was what you had hoped for, or whether it wasn’t, this weekend brings one last opportunity to make some memories.

As the chairman of the Elburn Days Festival this year, my summer memories have been humbling. I have had the great privilege of working alongside the fine people who make Elburn Days happen. It has been an amazing story of teamwork, dedication and people helping other people.

I would like to thank all of the folks who have been—and will be—volunteering at Elburn Days this weekend. Although it is often said that “we couldn’t do it without you,” there are no better words. Thank you.

I would also like to thank our sponsors, whose financial support we depend on. We couldn’t do it without you, either. Thank you.

When the parade kicks off Friday night, our community will come together for one last summer weekend—an opportunity to relax, have fun and perhaps make memories to last a lifetime. For those of you we see at the festival this weekend, I hope Elburn Days is everything you wish it to be, and that it lives up to this year’s theme, “Anything is possible when you follow your dream.”

On behalf of the Elburn Lions Club, thank you again to everyone who makes Elburn Days possible. See you this weekend at Lions Park.
