Run with friends becomes holiday tradition

The Turkey Trot 5K run/walk will be held at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving Day at Lake of the Woods, with registration starting at 7 a.m. Participants who pre-register before Tuesday, Nov. 19 will get a t-shirt.

Chamber invites women to Ladies' Night Out

The Mahomet Area Chamber of Commerce is inviting local women to their annual "Steppin' Out...Ladies' Night Out."

Organizer Theresa Berry said that the event has been steadily growing over the past three years. In the first year, 100 women attended—and attendance more than doubled to 250 in the following year. This year, they're hoping for an even bigger turnout.


Community-Wide Garage Sale is here!

Wondering how you can get your hands on a copy of the Citizen's guide to 78 of this weekend's biggest garage sales?

You'll find the map on page 14 of this week's issue, available at our Main Street office (across from the post office and Busey Bank) or at retail outlets around town, including local gas stations and IGA.

Good luck!
