LIONS CLUB’S LARGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR
Due to COVID-19, we regret to say that Elburn Days 2020 must be cancelled.
About elburn days
In 1934 the Elburn Lions Club began an annual event known as “A Day in the Park”, which later became known as Elburn Days. For 85 years this event happened. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we regret to say that Elburn Days 2020, as have many other festivals and fairs this year, must be cancelled. This decision was made considering the State of Illinois phase requirements plus our concern for the health and safety of our workers and guests.
Our efforts now go into thinking about the wonderful Elburn Days 2021 that will be happening on August 20 thru 22, 2021. We hope to see you there.
The funds raised during Elburn Days go to not only charity but also to maintain Lions Park for everyone’s enjoyment throughout the year. We have begun discussing the holding of a smaller event on Sunday, August 23, 2020 that will be called “Pull for the Park”. This event would feature a combination drive thru or sit-down pulled pork dinner, plus we would be selling our world-famous pull tabs.
Even though Elburn Days is cancelled, we are still holding our Annual Car Raffle ($20 per ticket) and Annual 50/50 Raffle ($5 per ticket). You can purchase either ticket online at “elburnlions.com” or call our office at 630-365-6315.
So even though we may be down for Elburn Days this year, your Elburn Lions are never out.
Stay tuned for further news.
