More than 40 people came out to mix & mingle at the Pontiac Chamber’s Business After Hours on September 15. Livingston County Chiropractic Center hosted the event and everyone enjoyed lots of great food, drinks and conversation. Check out photos from the event.
Thousands of people lined the streets of downtown Pontiac to enjoy the annual Threshermen’s Parade by the Pontiac Area Chamber of Commerce. Favorites were the Navy Band Great Lakes, South Shore Drill Team, the PTHS Marching Band and the various Shriner Clubs.
Larry & Shirley Hackmann from Washington, IL were dressed in clothes from the 1860s and danced behind the Flanagan-Cornell Band. Their dress represented the era near the end of Threshing on the farm. Larry, as a child, worked as a water boy for a threshing crew in the the early 1950s.
All along the parade route, Nathan Joerndt, this year’s Grand Marshal, was greeted with cheering crowds.
This year year more than 15 floats were in the parade. The winner of the Wilbur J. Collins Award was awarded to the Girl Scouts. In the theme category, Pontiac Healthcare & Rehab won first, Vermillion Players won second and First Lutheran Church won third. In the non-theme category, Evenglow Lodge won first, Boy Scouts won second and SOCU won third.
The South Shore Drill Team will be part of the Threshermen’s Parade again this year on Sunday, September 4 at 1:15 pm. They will also be giving a special performance immediately following the parade in the square downtown Pontiac. So make sure to stick around and watch.
Brittany Payton (yes she is Walter’s daughter) from WGN’s Chicago’s Best program came down to Pontiac to sample a little rhubarb pie and find out more about the Old Log Cabin Restaurant. Brad Trainor showed Payton how to make rhubarb pie. Payton also posed for photos with customers.
