Parking, food at senior center during fair week

Published: Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

Fox Valley Older Adult Services will once again host Grannie’s Eatery during the Sandwich Fair, offering home-cooked food in a comfortable building out of the heat and chaos of the midway. The eatery is open from breakfast through dinner and late night snacks, plus a children’s menu.

The Fox Valley Community Center, just across Suydam Road from the fairgrounds’ green horse barn gate, also will have a bar open from 4 p.m. until fair closing each day to serve cold adult beverages.

The FVOAS craft ladies have been working hard all year, preparing a selection of hand-crafted items that will be for sale adjacent to Grannies Eatery.

A limited number of parking spaces will be available at the community center for $6 per day. Fair tickets can be purchased at the center, and the fair can be entered at the gate just across Suydam Road. A limited number of weekly parking passes also are available for $25.

Proceeds support programs and activities for seniors in DeKalb, LaSalle, Kendall, Kane and Bureau counties.

Call 815-786-9404 to purchase a parking pass. MasterCard and VISA accepted.
