Exploding Turkey Trot 5K Fireworks Donation
At the January 11, 2016, Village Board meeting, Exploding Turkey Trot 5K Race Director Patrick Devitt made a donation of $5,500 to the Village for the 2016 fireworks display. The donation came from the proceeds of the 2nd Annual Exploding Turkey Trot race, which was held on Thanksgiving morning.
"Not only is the Turkey Trot a wonderful community event, but the proceeds help fund our July fireworks celebration," said Mayor Gayle Smolinski. "Patrick saw a need and found a way to help us fill it. It is a great job by all involved!"
