Happy Friday, Antioch!
This isn’t news to any of us, but it’s great when an organization from outside of Antioch recognizes our community! Travel website ShermansTravel recently came out with its “The Best Historic Towns in all 50 States” list. Antioch made the #1 spot for the Best Historic Town in the State of Illinois! See the entire list here: https://www.shermanstravel.com/slideshow/the-best-historic-towns-in-all-50-states
We’re getting ready for the Antioch Fourth of July festivities! Registration is going on now for the 27th annual Antioch Run for Freedom 5K on the Fourth of July.

I am looking forward to joining Congressman Brad Schneider and his staff for their “Congressman on your Corner” Town Hall event. The Town Hall begins at 11 a.m. and will offer an opportunity for attendees to get questions answered by the Congressman and to hear an update on the Congressman’s activities in Washington.

Did you have a chance to attend the It’s Thursday concert last night with The Complex at the Bandshell? Despite the cool weather, we had another great turnout! Thank you to everyone who attended.
