Non-For Profit Awareness Event
Club Arcada 
105 E Main St, St. Charles, IL 60174

November is all about giving back, so what better way to "give back" then to host an event about all our non-profits in the community and how they give back.

The St. Charles Chamber of Commerce hosted their first Non-Profit Night at Club Arcada on November 27th.
Presented by  Kane County Chronicle  (Shaw Media), and  Greater Giving.
Each of the non-profits performed a PechaKucha style presentation which is Japanese for chit-chat and consisted of 15 slides in 15 seconds for a total of 3 minutes and 45 seconds. During the presentation I didn't just see someone standing up their sharing a story, but sharing a passion and a life long tale of what drives them to be on that stage giving back.

Thank you to all our Non-profits who participated!

Businesses of the Month
Schramm Contruction

All of us at Schramm Construction Corp. would like to extend a Happy Holiday Season to everyone! We have enjoyed a great 2018 and are so grateful to be a part of the St. Charles business community. This year we completed additions to Christ Community Church, Masonite Corporation and FONA International, transformed 2 existing buildings into the Fox Valley Gun Club and Tek-Pak (a plastics thermoforming mfg.), and window replacement/upgrades to the Batavia Government Center. Our most recent project is a new facility for Ditch-Witch Midwest and we continue to work with Tiger-Drylac USA on additions and renovations to their North American headquarters. The Schramm Team had a great time at our annual volunteer day at Northern Illinois Food Bank in St. Charles. We all love to give back and as the holiday season approaches and we reflect on our blessings and focus on others less fortunate we invite you to join us in giving to two organizations which we are thankful to be involved; CASA Kane Country ( and The Hearten Haiti Project (
If you are contemplating a new commercial building, renovation or addition, please give us a call!!! We would love to help your dreams come true!!!
