Why we are sponsoring this weekend...
The Illinois Valley Youth Enrichment Association presents: IV YEA! Family & Fun Weekend! To be held on Labor weekend of 2020.
This year has been a trying time for all of us as business owners, employers, employees, family members and community members. We all need a reason to relax a little this year and find some fun. Lets honor our traditions and maintain hope for a promising future.
For the past 47 Years, The Illinois Valley Lions Club has helped our community come together and celebrate during the weekend that includes Labor Day. This year with the risks of COVID-19 as well as social and political unrest they feel unable to take on this task.
With gratitude and respect for all the years the Illinois Valley Lions Club has stepped up to support this community and bring it together, we wish to take on the challenge this year and provide the community a way to celebrate together as well as honor the dedication and service given to us for so many years by the Lions Club. We have great hope, this will merely be a placeholder event and the Lions will come out roaring again in 2021.
