What a great day yesterday!! Thank you to everyone involved and all our friends and family who came out to support us! We couldn't ask for a better community to be a part of and we are so very thankful! Congrats to Dan Boland who won the 50 inch flat screen TV and to Bonnie Durre who guessed 451 on the 454 m&m bowl! She won a $25 gift card and gift bag from the store. Special thanks to mayor Bill Koos for coming up for the ribbon cutting, all the Aldermen who were there and have supported us, Corky Marshall for donating for the prizes and give aways, and Minonk community bank for the wonderful flowers.
