The Kewanee Chamber of Commerce needs a little help ahead of and during Kewanee Hog Days. According to a release from the Kewanee Chamber of Commerce, volunteers are needed from 12 Noon until 3 or 4 Pm to help pass out race packets to those who are taking part in the annual Hog Day Stampede. 2 to 3 volunteers are needed for this task and will receive a free Hog Days t-shirt. Speaking of the shirt, this year's theme is "Can't Stop the Squealing" and your first look at the new shirt logo is here...


"Can't Stop the Squealin" Hog Days T-Shirts officially go on sale at the Chamber of Commerce Office on August 12th but you can pre-order your shirt by stopping by the Kewanee Chamber of Commerce office this week during regular business hours. 


Still more volunteer help is needed during the Hog Days Parade. The Kewanee Chamber of Commerce is looking for a volunteer with a trailer that could haul the Good Time Jazz Band in the Hog Days Parade. If you can help, contact the Kewanee Chamber of Commerce at 309-852-2175.
