Elburn Days Parade 2022
by Marla Roach on August 5th, 2022
2022 Elburn Days Parade: Heidi Anderson and Cathy Whiteside are organizing a float for the parade on August 19, 2022, to represent Grace Church. Volunteers are needed to help plan the theme and decorations for our float. Kelly Diehl has offered the use of his trailer. The Elburn Lions theme for the 2022 Parade is “ELBURN LIONS Soar to the Skies for Eyes!” The Lions have many charities they sponsor. Through Recycle for Sight, Elburn Lions collects new and gently used eyeglasses, sunglasses, hearing aids and cell phones and cell phone chargers. Grace has a collection box for used glasses in the Gathering Room. Those donations are then passed on to the Elburn Lions. Please contact Heidi Anderson (630/746-5073) or Cathy Whiteside (630/605-1096). Thank you in advance for any help you can give us with this project.  Read More
