Thank you volunteers!

Thank you to all the volunteers that came out Friday and assembled over 1100 luminaries; Girl Scout Troop 70153, Boy Scout Troop 139, Mark Butzu, Karen Sleva and Tom Skornicka Jr.  The cold temperatures didn't hinder the volunteers that distributed them on Christmas Eve thanks to Ron Allen, Tom Skornicka Jr, Dan Eschmann, Troop 70153 and Troop 139.  I'd especially like to thank all the residents that helped light the streets of our village that made it glow in the fresh fallen snow. 

Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous New Year,
 
Coleen Skornicka
