To the Editor:
I would like to thank everyone who participated in our annual New Year’s Day Hike at Harris Woods Forest Preserve in Yorkville this year.
We had a turnout of nearly 50 people, and donated over 70 cans of soup to the Kendall County Community Food Pantry. That is a lot of brave souls enduring -5 degree temps.
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who assisted in preparations and operations. You helped create an exceptional event! A special thank you to the Krause and Masters families, who sponsored the hot dogs, buns, condiments, plates, napkins and utensils.
Thank you to Shaw Media for their coverage.
Look forward to seeing you next year.
