Upcoming McHenry County Events

74th Harvard Milk Days

 

It all began in the spring of 1942 when people got together to honor the area farmers for their "War Effort" of increasing milk and food production for the servicemen. At that time there were seven dairy companies within a 15-mile radius of Harvard and more milk was being produced there than anywhere in the United States. Harvard became the self-proclaimed "Milk Center of the World!"

Dairy Promotion on the Square

On June 24, bring your blankets and lawn chairs to the Historic Park on the Square and enjoy a traditional band concert and ice cream social as the Woodstock City Band presents its 131st season of concerts.

Everyone is invited to the City of McHenry's annual Day at Petersen Farm celebration on Sunday, June 28, at 4112 McCullom Lake Road, one mile West of Route 31.

At The Farm Gate

Fast fix-its keep the farm going

By Joanie Stiers

Our 7-year-old son emerged from his room wearing a "farm play" shirt in preparation for school. I advised that this old Chicago Bears jersey had lost eligibility in the "good" category of clothing when one of its loose-fitting sleeves completely split from elbow to armpit.
