That may be a little confusing to residents into whom the slogan "always the last full weekend in July" has been drummed for 51 years but this is Founders' Days Carnival, not Founders' Days.
The idea is that a separate carnival will spread the weather risk around a little bit since for the past two years the dice have been against Founders' Days rainwise. Founders' Days and its regular carnival will be July 28-31 this year.
The Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Jaycees are kicking off 2011 evetns with the Founders' Fun Bowl
at Algonquin's Brunswick Zone on Algonquin Road Saturday from 7 to 10 pm.
This evening will include a buffet dinner, three games of bowling, raffles and 50/50 for $25.00 per person. Tickets are available at Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Chamber of Commerce or by contacting Sue at 847-274-5491 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
