Mayor escorts student to school
Elburnâ€”Elburn Village President and St. Gall Parishioner David Anderson recently made a local studentâ€™s dream come true, with the help of the boyâ€™s grandparents and a local limousine company.
The St. Gallâ€™s Annual Gala included the silent auction item â€œHave the Mayor Take Your Child to School in a Limo,â€ won by Maple Park residents Eldon and Sandra Gould. Their grandson, Andrew Gould, was ecstatic to learn that Anderson would arrive at his home in a limousine on the first day of school, take him to Blackberry Creek Elementary School, and escort him into his new classroom.
Elburn resident Jeff Hiltunen of West Suburban Limousine in Winfield, Ill., donated the limousine ride.
The Annual Gala is a fundraising event for the building of a new church to be located at the corner of Hughes Road and Route 47. The 2010 Gala is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 9. For more information, contact the St. Gall Parish Office at (630) 365-6030.
