The Christmas spirit

The Christmas spirit was very evident in the city of McHenry last weekend.

I would like to thank the Riverwalk Area Business Association for planning two days of fun-filled events for our residents and our guests. Your stores looked beautiful!

I also would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for supporting this great event. Our city employees did a magnificent job of decorating our streets to reflect the spirit of the season.

I would especially like to thank the Jaycees for organizing the Toys for Tots parade. You do so much for our community. We truly appreciate it. As a result of your dedication, more than 1,000 motorcycles participated in our parade, and we filled an entire semi with new toys for children who may have not gotten a gift without your help. 

We are truly blessed to live in a community filled with so much generosity toward others and pride in our town. Please remember to shop McHenry this holiday season. Our business community is constantly giving to great causes. Let’s support them as a way of showing our thanks.
