On the Fourth of July, the Chapel on the Green in Yorkville hosted its fifth annual Shoe Box Float Parade. The theme this year was “The River” because the program in the Chapel was “The Legend of the Fox.”
First place for the People’s Choice votes was Jane Foster from Plano. Her float “mapped” the Fox River from the Wisconsin border down to Ottawa, a distance of 220 miles.
Second-place honors went to Linda Cox and the Yorkville Garden Club. Her float showed the flowers and happy animals on the Fox River.
Third-place winner was Sharon Lowy from the Kalico Kwilters, which showed a quilted sail on the sailboat taking a trip down the Fox River. The Kalico Kwilters quilt every Wednesday on the second floor of the Chapel, 105 W. Center St.
