Spring Brings New Things to our Community

Spring is in the air! After a pretty mild winter (so far), we are excited about the prospects of spring and the new things it will bring.

“Recently, I attend a meeting at Dominy Memorial Library for a group of community leaders from all over the county. Leaders from all fifteen incorporated communities were present. The goal of this meeting was to encourage communities to work together, promote each, support each other’s events and businesses, and begin interacting on a regular basis. This is something new for not only Livingston County, but we believe also for the State of Illinois,” say Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops.

“Indeed this is a sign of spring… all things fresh and new! Multiple communities working together, similarly to what our local specialty shops are doing, could truly be impactful to the economy of our county. Stay tuned for more!”

Over the next few weeks, there are several events signifying the beginning of Spring! On Monday, March 14th, the Specialty Shops are hosting their annual “Spring Open Houses!” Kilgus Farmstead, Lost Arts, Fairbury Furniture, Meyer’s Gifts, Dave’s Supermarket, Serendipity, Heart’s Desire, The Spotted Owl, Once ‘n Again, and The Country Cupboard are all participating. Go take a look at the new items available in town.

On Tuesday, March 15th, Dairy Queen is celebrating a “FREE CONE DAY!” Stop in for a cone and see the newly remodeled interior of their restaurant. It is beautiful!

On Wednesday, March 16th, China Kitchen is hosting their “Surprise Buffet Item” Day. Enjoy either lunch or dinner and taste their new wonderfully delicious dish!

“Spring is such a wonderful time of year! Fairbury is such a great place to be!” says Bobbi McKeon.
