Thousands of Elgin residents lined up along beautiful Douglas Avenue to enjoy Elgin’s annual 4th of July Parade. More than 125 groups participated. The Downtown Neighborhood Association and the City of Elgin extend a thank you to all the sponsors, participants, volunteers and spectators.
The Walton Island improvements were covered by Gloria Carr in the Courier News on Monday. Read the article
The Elginite blog had a comment.
"It's unfortunate that there's a huge piece of kitsch shaped as a frozen American flag marring the landscape of Walton Islands. What's the point? If they wanted a flag on the island, why didn't they put up a real flag? It would have looked 100x better than the current monstrosity."
What do you think?
How does the new flag compare to the original painted flag?
