November 2018 President’s Message

We have several offerings of things to do for the end of the year. On Saturday November 17th, Jim LaMore will lead CIGC on a tour of F. Weber Printing Company, 450 N. Locust St., Manteno at 9:30 am. Frank has some interesting stories to tell about his father, Manteno, the Hart Parr and how he came to be in the printing business. The tractor will be the feature next year along with other Olivers at Will County Thresherman’s. Frank is a very good story teller. Those who are interested will go to Tony’s Pizza in Peotone for lunch. On December 8th we will meet at Rodney Schwark’s farm 12371 W 6000 S Rd., Herscher, for coffee and donuts at 9:00 am for a tour of his collection. Don’t miss this even if you were here last year, I am sure it has changed since then. On December 12th we will again celebrate Christmas at the Herscher Legion Community Center, 102 S. Oak, Herscher at 6:30 pm. We will have a silent auction and prizes to be given away. We will also introduce the 2019 Directors and Officers of our Club. Its not to early to think about what you may bring for the auction. Ann Roach is in charge of the evening. Please don’t hesitate to ask her what you can do to help. At this time Chuck Quick is out of the hospital and doing well. John Fulton is still in the hospital and Loretta says he is improving daily. Your good thoughts and prayers are appreciated. Lastly Katelynn Ohrt (KCC Ag) sent the following message with regard to our scholarship winner. “Thank you again for attending the breakfast this morning. KCC appreciates the Green Club’s support. The Green Club’s scholarship recipient is Piaget Felix. Piaget is a student in the agriculture transfer program.” Till next time. –– Craig
