LETTERS: Give Hillsboro a birthday gift, volunteer

To the editor:

When: Friday, June 26, 2009

Where: Hillsboro’s Main Street

What: Hillsboro’s 125th birthday party

Come wish the City of Hillsboro a happy birthday. Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce will be serving cake and ice cream while you are entertained by the Schniggle Fritz Band. The Great Hillsboro Beard Contest winners will be announced and awarded. Hillsboro’s mayors, past and present, will be recognized.

Your part is to pledge your volunteer time as your birthday gift to the city. Choose from the city’s wish list what you would like to do for the city. Complete the pledge form. Between now and June 26, turn it in at the collection center at Quilts and Quilt Racks, 130 N. Main, Hillsboro. Don’t delay. Do it now.

Watch the Hillsboro Star-Journal and see posters around town for information on the Schaeffler House centennial celebration, the Hillsboro Museum open house, and ribbon cutting.
