Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Mount Carroll Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank everyone who worked together to make the Beautification Project, Christmas Walk and Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony all successful.

The City of Mount Carroll, the Chamber, several businesses and many volunteers all contributed to these projects.

A special thanks goes to Robert McFletcher-Jones and Kiley Schulz, from Timber Lake Playhouse, who provided the wonderful entertainment for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and, of course, Santa, who made such a grand entrance on the fire truck!

This was truly a community effort which resulted in starting the holiday season off with a bang! Many thanks to all of you and Happy Holidays.
