The event was held in Brookside Park. As I approached I was impressed that the cars were backed up onto Jackson Street. When I got there I saw that there was an unrelated soccer game on the field and a motor cycle group in another shelter, so without those events there would not have been nearly as many cars.
The Alumni association is planning for its next big event, a Little 500 that will be held at the Jasper County Fairgrounds. Alumni will be able to bring a camper and spent the night in the Alumni Village. The association also provided a link the a new SJC on-line archive that Sheila Maxwell has spent many hours preparing. See here.
The other big event for the weekend was Oktoberfest. The ideal weather and the presence of the SJC alumni helped give this year's Fest the largest attendance ever.
This is a good week to go into City Hall and pay your utility bill. They utility office is celebrating Public Power Week with cookies and candy.
