Today let’s look at the Lake in the Hills elected officials, elected in non-partisan elections, as well as entries from other tax districts.
Even before the parade I saw the Algonquin Township Road District bus for seniors ferrying people from the end of the parade to their starting place.
A Navy band played, “Anchors Away,” a song I remember my mother playing on the piano from the 1940’s.
The Grand Marshall was next.
Police in an open vehicle followed.
Lake in the Hills Village officials were in the back of a pickup truck.
Tell readers who is where, please.
This was the view from the north side of the truck. It was going to fast for me to get a good side view.
A McHenry County Sheriff’s Squad car came next.
Fire engines headed by one from the Huntley Fire Protection District follows.
They were loud.
There were lots of dance and judo groups.
The Algonquin Area Public Library District had an entry.
Volunteers were passing out books to children.
Then came a truck from the Lake in the Hills Sanitary District.
The district was formed because the borrowing authority of Lake in the Hills was not high enough to allow the village to provide sewage treatment on its own.
The end of the parade did not feature a clean-up crew from the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County.
Instead a Lake in the Hills sweeper got the candy kids left behind.
