5th Annual Joey Buis Memorial Bake Sale

Come join us for the 5th Annual Joey Buis Bake/Snack sale on October 3rd at the 400 block of Chestnut Street in Minonk from 10am-2pm unless we sell out early. We will be set up between The Lanes and Stimp's, both restaurants will be serving a walk up lunch for grab and go and will also have their regular lunch available inside 11am-2pm. The Lane's will be serving steak sandwiches and Stimp's will be serving pork chop sandwiches and Stimp's chips.

In addition to the bake sale we will have raffle basket chances available too. If you would like to donate a raffle basket/item please contact Amanda Whited (309-645-1637) for pick up or drop off information. Baked/snack items can be dropped off at The Lane's or Stimp's starting October 2nd during regular business hours or contact Amanda Whited for pick up. Online raffle chances will be available on FB event page.

Some of the great things we have been able to use the donations for are:
Drums Alive Program at Fieldcrest Primary.
Help fund the Speakers in our down town area.
Santa's Helpers Program to help area children over the Holiday.
Buddy Benches at Fieldcrest Primary and coming soon to FHS benches outside the office. NOW IN PLACE!
Last year we added a scholarship to FHS Seniors.
To everyone who donates, shops and any support given over the last 5 years to this event, THANK YOU. It means so much to be able to Celebrate Joey's memory each year.
Love, Joey's family and friends.

Feeling Blessed!

Don and I would like to thank everyone who reached out by cards, facebook posts, calls and texts while he was in the hospital and since coming home. We truly appreciated all the prayers given and feel blessed to have such caring people in our community.

Thanks again-

Nicor Gas Offers Payment Assistance

I am reaching out regarding the $4.5 million in bill payment assistance that remains available to support Nicor Gas residential customers who have past-due balances and may be affected by the ongoing pandemic.

In some instances, this may be the first-time families are experiencing financial hardship and are not sure where to turn for help. Nicor Gas believes every family deserves affordable and reliable energy.

Here are details on a few of our programs we offer for residential customers. We appreciate your help in sharing this information on your website or via other virtual means. It is important that your citizens, who are also our customers, receive available assistance so they can continue to receive safe, clean, reliable and affordable natural gas they deserve.

Nicor Gas welcomes the opportunity to work with you and your staff.

Thank you for your efforts.
