If you haven’t had a chance to visit yet, the Invenergy public Open House is going on until noon today (Saturday, June 28). Wonderful facility and it may be one of the few times you’ll be able to tour it. Stop by for refreshments and visit with the Elgin staff. E-R photo

Members of the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department brought a beautiful - and somewhat loud - end to Elgin’s Q125. Shortly after 10 p.m., fireworks lit up the sky over the town. Wonderful to see fireworks of that caliber in Elgin! E-R photo

Governor Dave Heineman is coming to Elgin!
Those believing he is the ’surprise’ celebrity for tonight’s opening ceremony of the Elgin Q125 celebration are in for a disappointment. Heineman is not expected to arrive in Elgin for the weekend celebration.
Instead, the governor will be one of the state dignitaries coming to Elgin on Wednesday, June 25, for the ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the commencement of operations at the Prairie Breeze Wind Energy Center.
The event, by invitation only, will be held June 25, beginning at 10 a.m. It will be held at the Prairie Breeze Wind Energy Center operations building located along Highway 70 in Elgin.
The event is not open to the public.
