Wonderful summer of music in Mt. Morris

Published: Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 2:58 p.m. CDT

Dear Editor,

Wasn't it a wonderful summer of music in Mt. Morris?

The continuation of the Wednesday night concerts and the addition of the Friday night venues.

Congratulations to Larry Ubben and whoever else helped him secure the variety of music for the Friday night concerts.

There was something for everyone.

Hopefully that will continue.

Club offers thanks

Dear Editor,

The Rock River Valley Rotary Club would like to thank all of those who helped make our 2012 Harvest of Hope event possible again this year.

Over 50 invited guests and Rotarians enjoyed a wonderful evening that included a delightful wine pairing experience, a raffle, live and silent auctions, and the fellowship of great friends.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, contributors, and event participants, almost $4,000 was raised to help support ongoing club service initiatives sponsored by our Rotary Club at the local and global level.

The club would like to thank Saro and Robin Costa, Tony Artale, and Jon and Tracy Eppes for their contibutions to the event.

Finally, the Club thanks all of our raffle andauction item donors, our hard-working volunteers, and most importantly our valued guests – for their timely contributions and support – which will enable us to continue to proactively and positively impact the communities in which we serve.

The Rock River Rotary Club was chartered in July 2008 and meets each Thursday at noon for lunch at Costa’s, Byron.

Don't bring dogs to AOP

Dear Editor,

Oregon has a great weekend in their city with the Autumn on Parade festival and hundreds of people enjoying it.

This is for the people, not dogs, and why do people think their dog is enjoying wandering through hundreds of people? If they could talk, they'd say, "No! Leave me home!"

I'm sure the paper can't publish a note saying "no dogs allowed during the festival."

What if somone trips over one and is hurt? Guess who will pay for that?

And why did the lady 10 feet away from the food court let her dog do his job on the lawn and have the audacity not to pick it up?

I'm sure someone else had to.

Let your dog stay home and sleep while you enjoy a great day in Oregon.
