Tentative Dates Discussed For Vetch Days 2009

The Elgin Chamber of Commerce/Community Club met last Monday with Vetch Days on their minds.  With the majority of the group’s members wanting a carnival available for kids during the annual celebration, one 3-day time is an option for the event.  Richards Amusements has contacted the Chamber with a contract making the days of June 22-24 the only dates available.  This would make the Vetch Days celebration a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday event.   The committee will be working hard to make these days workable for all wishing to attend.  More will be announced later.

Other items:  Chili Cookoff will be held on Saturday, March 14 at the KC Hall.  Donna Mackel is chair of the event.  The Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for Saturday, April 4 at the city park.   Much discussion was held on an appropriate donation to the Elgin Area Community Foundation from the group.  The item was tabled to next meeting.
