Thank You to Parade Sponsors, Donors and Helpers

Monday, December 04, 2017 - Posted 12:15:27 PM by Jordan Meyer

The Minonk Business Association would like to say a HUGE thank you for all the float sponsors, monetary donors, and parade helpers this last Saturday for the 34th Annual Minonk Parade of Lights. This event would not be possible without all you. This year we had 43 local floats and 18 floats rented from Shirley's Custom Floats!! We had great weather, great floats, and a great turn out! We hope to continue to grow the parade each year. If you are interested in being added to the parade mailing list for next year, have input/questions/concerns, please contact Jordan or Jon Meyer (309-643-7468

Congratulations to our Parade of Lights raffle winners: Lori Mason, Julie Ehrnthaller, Dorris Wyss, Andy Wiesenhofer, and Fran Allen. You can collect your winnings at the Minonk Community Bank.

Congratulations to our Best Decorated Golf Cart/Ranger winner: The Frei Family
