From the Desk of
Mayor Ann B Taylor
November is such a special month. It is a time to be thankful and reflective, to be with family, and to appreciate everyone and everything that has helped you through the year. As we near the end of 2022, I find myself looking forward to all the winter holiday season holds.
This Friday, November 11th, Waukegan holds its annual Veterans Day parade to salute the brave, selfless men and women who have served our country past and present. I thank every Waukeganite who has worn the uniform in peacetime or wartime. You can find additional information about the parade and a drive benefiting veterans below.
I wish all Waukeganites a safe, healthy, and joyous Thanksgiving. These past few years have certainly been challenging, so everyone deserves to sit around the table with loved ones and enjoy a hearty meal and kinship.
Lastly, I want to highlight a few major winter holiday events happening in early December before the next E-News will arrive. The Kris Kringle Market, Winter Wonder Walk, and Tree Lighting are all scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd. Come ring in the season with holiday cheer at these wonderful winter events!
Thank you, and have a fantastic November!
