Dates Set For Vetch Days Celebration

Dates for the annual Vetch Days celebration have been finalized.

Greg Tharnish, president of the Elgin Chamber/Community Club, said Monday night a contract has been signed with Richard’s Amusements to provide a carnival for Vetch Days. The only dates available were Monday through Wednesday, June 22-24. As a result, those will be the dates for this year’s celebration.

Tharnish said the community of Petersburg will be holding their annual celebration on Tuesday through Thursday, June 23-25.

Discussions are now underway with representatives from Petersburg to have some joint event during the week to bring the two communities together. 

However, nothing yet has been finalized.
