During Spring Session, State Representative Tony McCombie (Savanna) passed House Bill 4766 which marks each August 1st as Sweet Corn Appreciation Day in Illinois. In honor of sweet corn and what it means to Illinois, Rep. McCombie will be hosting a Sweet Corn Celebration.
“Like millions of others in Illinois, sweet corn reminds us of summer and fun family memories. Sweet corn has always been a favorite of mine and we want to help make new family memories in NW Illinois. On August 1st, in Savanna we will celebrate Sweet Corn Appreciation Day! This is a family fun event with bounce houses, face painting and, of course, sweet corn. I hope you all will come and join in the family fun and celebrate sweet corn with us on August 1st,” said McCombie.
The date, time, and location for the First Annual Sweet Corn Day are as follows:
Monday, August 1, 4:00pm-7:00pm
