Ela Township invites you to celebrate its second annual Township Day on Thursday, September 21.

Join us for family-friendly festivities from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Knox Park in Lake Zurich, located next to the Ela Town Hall at 1155 E. Route 22.

Enjoy free grilled hot dogs and treats at our community cookout along with music, wagon rides, children’s games and entertainment, a highway department truck display, blood drive, food drive and more. We’re even going to attempt the township’s biggest performance of the “Cha Cha Slide!”

Visit the information booths of our community partners and nonprofit organizations to learn more about their programs, services and resources.

Bring a non-perishable food item for the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry for a chance to win a flatscreen TV! One entry per family.

The blood drive will be held 3-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, in Knox Park. The mobile blood coach will be open two hours prior to the start of Township Day. Each donor will receive a $10 Target gift card!

Walk-ins are welcome or appointments can be made online at https://ht.heartlandbc.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/2034345.

For more information, please call the Ela Township Supervisor’s Office at (847) 438-7823.

We look forward to seeing you at Township Day!
