Marengo Ridge Golf Course is offering golf camps for those grades eight through 12 from July 19- 22 and August 9-12, 2011.

Nancy McClure Turner Russell, 87, peacefully passed away on June 12, 2011, in Beaverton, Oregon.

My official last day as the Marengo Main Street Executive Director was June 10, 2011. I accepted a new position working at Del Webb in Huntley as the Standards Advisor for the Association Management.

When the robins return, usually around March 5th, it is always an exciting day for me.
