Our first tour of homes really started out with a bang. The participating builders and their subs got together for a great kick off party at Doc’s in Mokena. It is great to see the pride everyone takes in the creation of homes. There was a large variety of homes participating in the event.
Mark your calendars for the Inaugural Ball on December 1st. We will welcome Henry Coyle as our next president. We also have the honor of welcoming our own Pat Franz as president of the Home Builders Association of Illinois. The joint event will be held at the newly revamped Mistwood in Romeoville.
As you probably know, there are many resignations or announcements not to run in the next election by our state legislators. While some are running for a higher office, it seems many are quitting due to the partisan fighting in Springfield. If you know any good candidates in one of these districts, please let Bill Ward know.
Don’t forget to register for the International Builders Show this January in Orlando.
Our own Home Builders Association of Illinois is running a HomePAC Fundraiser this year to increase our voice in Springfield.
