Peotone Car Show, Legion Fun Run Get Event Permits
Peotone Trustees give the Car Show, Legion Fun Run the go-ahead for July
The Peotone Car Club and the Peotone American Legion got the Village Board go-ahead for two popular fundraisers coming up in July.
The Car Club will host its annual Car Show on Saturday, July 26, from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The Car Show is one of the most popular events in the Downtown Historic District each summer, and fills the Downtown Historic District with classic, collector and antique cars.
The Car Club asked the Village Board to approve a Special Use Permit that will allow them to close parts of Main Street, all of Second Street and North Street.
The board approved the closures.
Earlier this year, the board approved a revised Special Use Permit for Nicole Bunte Green and Ashley Bunte Wehrmann, who will also hold their Farmer's Market on July 26. The Farmers' Market will be located east of Railroad Street between North and Crawford Streets.
Also during the Car Show, St. John's United Church of Christ in North Peotone will have its annual Corn Roast Booth on the lot where the Peotone American Legion Hall is located.
In another matter during Monday's Village Board meeting, officials approved a Special Use Permit requested by American Legion Commander Jim Butler to the Post's Lawn Mower Fun Run on July 12 at 1 p.m.
The Fun Run will include Cheeseburger in Paradise and the Blind Obstacle Course. Participants may "ride a lawn mower, golf cart, walk or crawl" the course. Registration is $7 per person. To pre-register, call 708-258-9378 or stop by the Legion.
Prizes will be awarded.
Meanwhile, in other business during Monday's Village Board meeting, trustees approved the part-time seasonal employment of Brady White for the Street Department. White, who is 19 and home for the summer break from college, will be paid $8.25 an hour.
Village President Richard Duran was absent on Monday, as was Trustee Kevin Hack.
Trustee Christopher Forsythe presided as President Pro-tem for the brief meeting.
