Around Town with Judy Martini: Lake Villa Township Casino Day

The Lake Villa Township Casino Day which was held Saturday January 9th was a huge success. Over 140 people attended despite the cold weather. The event was one of four annually which Lake Villa Township officials sponsor for area seniors. Seniors from all around Lake County and from Wisconsin were in attendance trying their luck to earn play money to win a prize. The largest pot winner was $1,400 and just about everyone left with some type of prize which was provided by Lake Villa Supervisor, Dan Venturi. A hot ham and bean dinner was served by Lake Villa Township volunteers which was delicious and there were plenty of desserts plus home made sundaes for seniors to enjoy.

Complimentary beverages were served such as: champagne punch, beer and wine along with coffee and soda beverages. Beverage servers who waited on tables were Judy Martini, Legislative Aide for Rep. Wheeler's Fox Lake office, along with State Rep. Sheri Jeisel.

The next Lake Villa Senior Township event coming up is a St. Patrick's Day Party. For further information on that event you can call Lake Villa Township office at 847-356-2116. Hope to see you there!
