December 5, 2018
Dear Village Resident,
The weather was a little frightful for the tree lighting festival with all the rain we had! Still, Santa visited with over 80 children in the beautifully decorated and festive pavilion. Thanks to all the volunteers who made the afternoon special, including the NHS students who helped with the crafts, the elves, and village staff and trustees. And we can't forget the jolly old elf himself and his wife - Marty and Maria Pinkowski! Also a big thank you to Coffee Masters, the Spring Grove Fire Protection District and Billy's Beef & Hot Dogs for the donations of cookies and drinks. View more pictures of the event here !
