The Pet Adoption Fair that was scheduled for Saturday, April 21, has been cancelled.
We are rescheduling for later this year and will let you know the new date as soon as possible where caring people can rescue pets and offer them loving homes.
As a volunteer for Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus, I urge people to “Never Shop, Always Adopt!”
Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) gave a shout out Tuesday on the House floor to all Hustle Up the Hancock participants.
Skillicorn used his point of personal privilege to acknowledge fellow representatives who attended the annual winter fitness fundraiser Feb. 25 at the John Hancock Center in Chicago, which has been held for 21 years and raised more than $16 million for lung disease treatment and research.
“Sunday was the Hustle Up the Hancock and I heard a couple other legislators joined us that do the stairs,” Skillicorn said, pointing to Rep. Laura Fine (D-Glenview). Skillicorn also mentioned other lawmakers including Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch (D-Hillside) and Rep. Kelly Burke (D- Oak Lawn) and said, "If I forgot someone, please feel free to shout and let us know.”
Skillicorn said the “good cause” that brought together the legislators regardless of political party promotes a positive atmosphere.
“I also want to point out that many state employees and state aides did the similar event here at the Wyndham and say that people who sweat together can work together,” Skillicorn said.
