Free postcard to soldiers in Iraq

Dear Viewers;

This is an email that I received which describes something you may want to participate in.

If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it, and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

Class of 81 reunion followup

Where is the Jumbo?

I was just reading about the nature trail around the jumbo are was shocked when I saw the pictures! WHERE IS THE JUMBO????? It has been a long time since I was in that area, but all I can see in these pictures is a small grass hill. Growing up in Minonk, climbing the jumbo at least once was almost required! We didn't sit around playing video games and instant messaging--we rode our bikes out to the jumbo and climbed it! Some of us spend hours and hours up there every summer. It's kind of sad to see a literal childhood monument gone! I agree that the city needs to claim and preserve what's left of this area! There is so much history there for those of us who grew up in Minonk.

We had a really good turn out and hope to have another Christmas House Walk next year.

We hope that everyone that attended had a good time and enjoyed looking at all the truly wonderful homes. We appreciate everyone that attended as all of the proceeds will go towards the fireworks celebration this next year.

Thanks again to everyone who participated.
