Craig’s Corner – December 2019

Most of you are aware that the recent election of Directors took place at the November meeting. All of the Directors chose to return to service for 2020 and all of the Directors were reappointed to their respective positions. Let us thank them all for the time and effort that each have given in the past and show them the support they need to continue fueling the Central Illinois Green Club. The List of Directors and Offices is included on the letter. On November 23rd, many of you chose to participate in our GICG field trip to the Earl D. Schoeffner Farm Museum, Momence and on to the Graham House Museum. I am told that everyone attending enjoyed the trip and many went on to Tony’s
Pizza, Peotone for lunch.

On December the 4th, Directors and Ride the River Committee members will meet at 6:30 pm for a light supper and first meeting of the Committee for the 2020 RTR. The meeting will be at the Long Ranch 3550N 5000 W Rd., Kankakee. If you would like to join the Committee, see our President Dave and come join us. On December 11th, GICG members and guests will meet at the Herscher Legion Hall, 102 S. Oak St., Herscher, IL at 6:30 to share fellowship of the Christmas Season, have a holiday meal provided by Lestina’s, and participate in a silent and a live auction. Please bring an unwrapped item for the silent auction. Those items will benefit GIGC directly. And I know there are good cooks out there who may bring baked goods for our benefit. Herscher Historical Society will also be our Honored Guests for the evening.

Jerry and Linda Tibbs have been gracious and have presented CIGC with an International 1066 series pedal tractor to be raffled off at our 2020 Christmas Party on December 16th, 2020. The pedal tractor is in great condition and will require nothing. I will have it for inspection at the Christmas Party. Each year our Club has gained significant value from the raffle and it gets our name out there, something people can touch. CIGC thanks Jerry and Linda very much forgiving CIGC this opportunity and very nice gift. Thank you.
