Naperville dedicated a new public bathroom by flushing its toilet.

The ceremony brought back the most innovative dedication ceremony I can remember.

It was in the 1970’s and took place in Island Lake.

A new sanitary district, then called the Island Lake Sanitary District, was about to begin operation.

The officials invited folks to their “Royal Flush.”

I wish I still had the brochure.

When I wrote a story about the district, now renamed the Northern Moraine Water Resource District, I called and asked if anyone had the program in a filing cabinet.

Alas, no one even knew of the ceremony.
