Stay Connected with Area Happenings!

There are several new ways to stay in touch with what is happening in Fairbury and the local area!

The Fairbury Chamber of Commerce is keeping a local calendar of events – www.fairburycalendar.com.  Check out this calendar!  It is a great way to check to see what is happening in Fairbury.

For area events, including Fairbury and the greater Livingston County area, click out to www.CentralILAttractions.com/events.  This is a good way to check what is happening in the area for the week, the month or just the weekend.  One thing seems certain, there is a lot going on over the next few months.  Never a dull moment in our area!

Something else new!  Recently, a new system has been implemented to notify interested folks in the area about events and happenings.  This system allows you to receive voice messages, texts and/or emails about what is happening.  To sign up for messages, go to www.CommunityConnectionIL.org and click on “message signup.”  It is simple to sign up.  Upon signup, in order to receive texts, you must message ALERT to 22300.  If you want to stay up-to-date, go do this right now before you forget!

If you sign-up for messages, your name will go into a drawing for $25 gift certificates to area restaurants.  $1,500 in gift certificates will be awarded!

“This message system is a great way to get connected,” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops Group in Fairbury.  “The messages sent are short and interesting.  Sign up today and have a chance to WIN!”

As always, if you have any stories, ideas or suggestions for interesting topics about our community, please stop by Heart’s Desire, call Bobbi McKeon at (815) 692-4500 or email fairbury@fairburyILattractions.com.
