Dear Editor:

The Stone House landscaping project in Mount Carroll is a go. We needed $4,000 and that is exactly what we received in donations.

A mega thank you to all our generous individual supporters and organizations, including the Mount Carroll Community Foundation, the Mount Carroll Rotary Club and Jo-Carroll Energy. Their donations will enable us to landscape the "The Old Stone House" property for the dedication ceremony.

Please plan to help us celebrate at the dedication of the Stone House Memorial Park, Saturday, Sept. 4. Mark your calendar.

We, in conjunction with the city, are planning a full day of fun and activities as part of the dedication and will keep you updated in the coming weeks.

We have worked long and hard to make this project a reality and invite you to share our excitement at the dedication ceremony. Mount Carroll is a great place to live.

Nancy Gmitro
