The Eighth Annual German Christmas Market was very successful for the vendors and for the Lemont Village Association.
A big thank you to the volunteers - Cathy Cohan organized the food, Kati Coffin prepared the Gluwein, Penny Eifrig organized the vendors, Chris Eifrig did set-up and take-down, Phil Hawk did the banner; Jackie Babcock, Nina Safron, Paula & Jim Marden, Susie Streit, Neal Hemmelstein, Sue & Ron Smith; and Linda & Dominic Foo, Lilly and Charlotte, who helped sell food, were “gophers,” and all around great helpers.
Phil Hawk, Jim Marden, and Ron Smith were the bratwurst & hotdog chefs, and the Cohan/Micci's provided the grill.
Thank you to the many cupcake and cookie providers as well – everything was delicious!
Thank you to Santa Claus for engaging many children on Saturday, Hog's Galore for locally made bratwurst, and hotdogs, and Café Lemont for gourmet coffee. Giant and Sam's Club donated gift cards for supplies.
