Urbana Sweet Corn Days is coming up on Saturday, August 17th.  Last year the Urbana Visioning Committee was able to raise the funds for the fireworks thanks to the generosity of our community and we THANK YOU!!

This year, unfortunately, that is not the case.  The Visioning Committee is continuing to work very hard to hold events catering to the children of Urbana, like the Christmas Event Soup and Supper with Santa, Annual Easter Egg Hunt and the Touch a Truck held during Sweet Corn Days.  This year they are starting to work on the future Veteran’s Park on Wood Street. While these events are great for the community they do not generate the donations needed to pay for the fireworks.

We are hoping that you would consider donating to our fireworks fund this year.  The City Council has voted to contribute to the cause this year to ensure that this event happens.  Donations are being accepted at City Hall.

The Urbana Visioning Committee would like to acknowledge the Urbana Lion’s Club and the Bar Y Pyro for their continued support of the Urbana Sweet Corn Days.
