Streamwood Celebration Now History

Streamwood Summer Celebration
A Success  

 We've just completed our seventh annual appearance at the Streamwood Summer Celebration's Business Expo sponsored by the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce.

The Summer Celebration runs the last weekend of July each year and is well attended.  We couldn't have asked for better weather. Temperature highs were in the low 80's with a gentle breeze Friday and Saturday.  Sunday was a little warmer and more humid with a brief shower.   The wind was calmer on Sunday.  The fire department had their hose shooting water in the air for those that wanted to cool off.

In addition to show-casing local businesses in the expo tent, there were plenty of activities for families. Local bands performed throughout the weekend, there was a parade on Saturday with over 100 entries this year, rides for the children and young at heart, bingo, face-painting, ice cream eating content for the children and lots more.  Many volunteers from the village make this a special event each and every year.

Lots of Interest in Land & Sea Vacations

We spoke to many couples, families, and individuals that were interested in getting away for a vacation.   As usual, we had a large supply of brochures, which we call "wish books" on hand.  One of the most popular brochures was the Royal Caribbean Oasis-class brochure which highlights this marvelous cruise ship. 

Unfortunately, I couldn't talk with everyone personally this year because I was splitting my time between my booth and the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce's booth.   As President of the Chamber, I was kept busy getting the businesses setup on Friday, answering questions at our booth, making announcements, and  judging contests.  I'd like to thank my Executive Assistant, Donna Lenhardt, who was invaluable in getting the event setup and assisting me throughout the weekend.

We had a special Royal Caribbean promotion with up to $100 onboard credit for select sailings now through 2014.  The exclusive offer runs through August 5th - so be sure to see our website and Facebook Fan Page for complete details or contact us directly.
