Bates: Thank you Fiesta Days partners, volunteers, sponsors
Another Fiesta Days has come and gone. A special thank you to all our partners, volunteers and sponsors for making this well anticipated community event happen.
A very special thank you to the city of McHenry’s current leadership, the aldermen and Mayor Susan Low. These public servants have guided staff in helping Fiesta Days be a family-friendly, cost-efficient, safe and fun event to attend. Staff such as Ambrose Kittl and Jeff Friedle kept the parks in pristine condition, Pedro Padro hung the banners during 95-degree heat and, of course, Bill Hobson tirelessly served Fiesta Days from its approval until the last float for the parade started down Main Street. Appreciation also is due our award-winning police force led by Chief John Jones.
Thanks to Dick Pagelow, Mr. Fiesta Days, laying out the park and keeping us all in gear on the operations side. He is aided by Lisa Cowger and Todd Lowenheim. Jeff Kleinschmidt handles the entertainment committee working hard to decide what music serves the community best. He is helped by Craig Wallace, Bob Lumber, Kim Ribar, and Joel Zarnstorf. Kurt Rice and Joe Meyer keep the beer cold. Dave Koehl, a certified electrician, also serves as a jack of all trades. Mike Marachek is a new addition this year, brought up on Fiesta Days pabulum.
