BOND COUNTY RELAY FOR LIFE

 

Great music, great food, and great people came together for a great cause at last Friday night’s Bond County Relay For Life event held at the Bond County Fairgrounds.  This year’s crowd was an inspiring sight because it included many cancer survivors, indicated by the blue survivor shirts they wore.    

 

At the event, Randy Alderman told WGEL that he thought that Bond County was again going to come through and raise thousands of dollars, and he was right.  The current total is 55 thousand dollars and still growing.  There were 16 teams including 7 bronze teams that raised 2,000 dollars plus. 440 Luminaries were sold, and the auction raised 2,300 dollars. 


SORENTO AVENUE ROAD OILING

 

The Bond County Highway Department will be oiling Sorento Avenue Wednesday, June 25th, from 7:00 am - 12:00 PM.  Work will be between the Redball Trail and IL Rt. 127.  Detour routes will not be made available.  Please take this into consideration if you are traveling in the area.  If you have questions or concerns, call the highway department office at 664-1144.


ANTIQUE “AUTHORS” GAME TO BE SOLD BOOK FAIR

 

An antique edition of the “Authors” game will be sold at silent auction during the Greenville Regional Hospital Auxiliary Book Fair, to be held June 26 through June 28 at the Greenville First Christian Church. Bids will be accepted during the three days of the event. The book fair will be open on June 26 from 5 to 9 p.m., on June 27 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on June 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

The antique card game was an anonymous donation from last year’s book fair. No other information about the game is known.  Anyone with information regarding the “Authors” game during the 2007 Book Fair, or those with information about the creation and production of the game, is urged to contact Book Fair Co-Chairman Jack Chism.

 


60 DAY MORATORIUM ON INSURANCE POLICY CANCELLATIONS

 

Governor Blagojevich has directed the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to impose a 60-day moratorium on the cancellation of insurance policies, due to late payment by policyholders living in counties impacted by recent storms and flooding, which have been declared disaster areas.  The moratorium is effective immediately and retroactive to June 10th.  Health insurance companies are also directed to be lenient if patients must use "out of network" providers, due to disruption in health care services.  For more information, call 866-445-5364.
