Happy Holidays! View our holiday hours here.
Holiday Blood Drive this Thursday
The Jake Vinyard Foundation and Heartland Blood Centers are hosting their 3rd Annual Holiday Blood Drive this Thursday, December 20, at the Village Municipal Centre . While this is a wonderful time of year, sadly, it is one of the most difficult times to collect blood. The best gift that someone can give is the gift of life. View the flyer here .
Service Your Trees this Winter
Joe Meyer Tree Service reminds us that winter is an ideal time to have trees serviced! There is less of a chance of spreading disease and pruning dormant trees gives them a full season to heal from pruning cuts. It is also easier to identify possible cracks and splits or hollow cavities and take corrective measures to remedy the problem. Take advantage of winter discounts! Joe Meyer Tree Service has provided quality service to thousands of satisfied customers. View more here or call them at 847-587-0593. Located on Route 12 in Spring Grove.
Live Christmas Music While You Shop
New Leaf Home Furnishings will be hosting live Christmas music during their business hours this Sunday, December 23 from 1 - 4 PM, music courtesy of Abikus Unplugged. They will also have light refreshments and holiday-themed give-aways to make it a merry last-minute shopping experience! Located at 2449 Pierce Drive.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
The holidays are a time for celebration. Wherever you are — at an office party, a family member’s home or out at a bar — please make the lifesaving choice to drive sober when the party ends. The Spring Grove Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois State Police to get impaired drivers off the road and help save lives. The Illinois Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns run now through January 2 and are funded with federal highway safety dollars and administered by IDOT in partnership with law enforcement throughout Illinois and the nation .
