KINGSBURY PARK DISTRICT MEETS WITH SKATEBOARDERS
Monday night the Park District held their final meeting with kids interested in helping design the new skateboard park. A representative from American Ramp Co. was on hand to go over the designs and add any special features that the kids had in mind. American Ramp CO. is the firm that the park district has decided to go ahead with and will be providing a ten percent match of any funds raised. The park will be 32 x 150 ft. and will be located either at JC Park or at the pool fields. The kids interested in helping raise donations will start to solicit funds this week through Feb 28th. If you are interested in helping with a donation, call the Kingsbury Park District Office for further information.

The Bond County Fair Board meeting for January was held last Wednesday at the Bradford Room. First, several people from the Civil War Re-enactment Group were present to show their plans for Civil War Re-enactment battles that will take place Saturday and Sunday at the 2009 Bond County Fair. They will hold these battles at the Quarter Midget Auto RaceTrack. The Board then approved the plans. There was an extensive discussion of the Tractor Pulling Contest with no decisions being made. The Board has begun discussions with Southwestern Electric Coop to furnish electricity to the Fair.
