UPCOMING EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Letter From the Village President
As the holidays speed towards us, I would like to take the time to ask everyone this holiday season, to not only think about your family and loved ones, but also think about your neighbors and those that are not as fortunate as some. Everyday we hear about people that have lost their home, maybe their job, maybe a loved one. Unfortunately it is getting more commonplace.
Sometimes people are too proud to ask for help. Sometimes, people don't know that there is help out there. That's where great neighbors come in. Lend an ear, a shoulder, a hand. Let them know that you can help. Let them know that there are people right here in McCullom Lake that are waiting to help.
I've said this every year and I will say it again, I have never seen a community come together in the time of need like it does here. If you know of someone who might not be able to have a holiday dinner, or a child that might not have much of a Christmas, or someone that is alone and just needs someone to be with this holiday season, contact the Village office and ask for the number for Neighbors Helping Neighbors. There, people are ready to help.
Thank You and I hope everyone has a great holiday season!
Terry, Fran & Nathan

Lost and Found
A set of keys was found on top of the mailbox at 5217 Parkview. They can be claimed at the Village Office during regular office hours.
Just a reminder - Leaf burning is not permitted in the Village of McCullom Lake. Violators will receive one warning, then will be ticketed for continued offenses.
A BIG THANK YOU
TO RESIDENT SHIRLEY LEADER!
We would like to express a sincere thank you to resident, Shirley Leader, for all her help and special touches for the many events that take place in the Village. Shirley has set up for Bunco nights, decorated for pot lucks and other special events, and made our Village Hall a warm and welcoming place.
Thank you, Shirley - we appreciate you!
Snow will be on the way soon! Please be aware that there is a Village Ordinance (Ordinance #316, Section 8.11 can be found on the VOML website) prohibiting anyone from pushing, plowing, shoveling or in any way moving snow into public roads, streets and rights-of-way, which could create dangerous or unsafe conditions. This will be enforced by the Village Police Department. Fines may be incurred if the ordinance is violated.
If residents have issues regarding snowplowing or mailbox damage, please do not call the Township Office. Calls should be directed to the
McCullom Lake Village Hall only.
The Village of McCullom Lake will participate in Elgin Recycling's holiday light recycling program this year. There will be a container at the Village office until January 31st where you can drop off lights that no longer work properly.
