|Happy January and Happy New Year!
Have you been wondering where we have been? Every
January we take a few days away from the website to
decompress from our busy December. But now we are
back and ready to spread the good word about all that is going
on in our great city!
Please welcome GraniteCityGossip.com's newest sponsor,
GRANITE CITY TAX SERVICE. A locally owned & operated
tax service that is ready to prepare your taxes this year, same
day service available in many cases. Please click their banner
for all of their information and give them a call today.
We also have the year's first Pet Vaccination Clinic at
Rural KIng coming up. Scroll below for information and
prices. Dr. Fischer and staff will be on hand for all your
pet's vaccination needs.
Save the date for the Super Bowl Party at the
Knights of Columbus Hall. It looks like a great time.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the village
mayor and trustees, the members of Nameoki United
Methodist Church, all first responders, the animal rescue
volunteers, those who helped fill sandbags and all involved
during the recent flooding in Pontoon Beach.

|With the prediction of the season's first accumulating snow for this weekend, we
thought of no better time to take a trip down memory lane to the summer days of
our childhood at the old Wilson Park pool! We can almost hear "Locomotion"
piping down from the observation pavilion! We remember running and dunking in
the Kiddie Pool to warm up if we got cold. Oh, do we remember the swim caps!
And at the end of the day, nothing filled our growling bellies like a hot dog and
popcorn from the cart that was always out front of the bath house.
This picture is courtesy of Wilson Park, and is circa 1970. Actually I think that is us
hanging out on the far wall! :)
