Saturday Fleming Road was dedicated as a Scenic Drive.
First there was a Pledging of Allegiance to the Flag.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the sign was covered. Ray Pensinger is seen on the left. Nick Chirkos, Chairman of the McHenry County Historic Preservation Commission, is on the right.
Speaking at the event was District 5 McHenry County Board member Tina Hill, who read Robert Frost’s “The Road Less Traveled,” as the wind blew her hair and into the microphone.

When it came time to uncover the sign, the designated women needed help from one of the tall men.
"Some assistance, please."
Time for the formal shots.

Michelle Krenger (left) took the photos of Fleming Road for the Scenic Drive application, and Lisa Halma Rhoades wrote the narrative that indicated the ways in which Fleming Road satisfied all six requirements of historic, architectural, archeology, cultural, scenic, and natural.
After the sign was uncovered, it was off to the Woodstock Country Club for a reception.
