Another Way to Get through Winter: Business Expos and Chili Cookoffs

And we certainly had another crummy  winter.  February was the coldest since the 1870s and the second-snowiest month ever in Chicago.  There is still plenty of snow piled up as it never had much of a chance to melt.

However, in a few minutes, I am going to the Fox Lake Chamber of Commerce Business Expo at Grant High School.  Always like the freebies and this is a great one in that it also is a Taste of Fox Lake.  Local businesses offer their wares for $1 or $2 so you get a great selection.

I went to the Richmond-Spring Grove Expo last Saturday and will go to the Johnsburg one next Saturday.

Plus, another good way to get through the winter is the famed chili cookoffs we have around here.  I have been to several of them, most recently last Saturday.

Plus, our American Legion is having entertainment this afternoon.

next weekend starts the St. Patrick's Day celebrations around here with the parade in Lake Villa and lotsa, lotsa croned beef and cabbage.
