She was beautiful music to our ears … Autumn Selover, Harpist. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent.

Thanks to Joliet Tent for keeping us dry and to Uncle Bub’s for the mouth watering barbecue.

Our appreciation to Lights of Learning for donating the Earth Day raffle basket valued at $150.

Countless thank you’s to the volunteers here at Ellis, you should be proud knowing we would not exist without your generosity of time and talent.
