February 2023

The Village Hall and Public Works will be closed on Monday, February 20 for President’s Day.

The Village of Warrensburg Clean-Up & Recycle Day has been set for Saturday, May 13, 2023. It will be set up the way it was last year – regular materials will be taken to the Illini Township location at 177 S Washington and electronics recycling will be taken at 168 E Main St. The full details and hours for drop-off have not been set at this time. We just wanted to give our residents ample time to plan.

The Warrensburg-Latham Lions’ Club will be hosting their Breakfast Extravaganza on Saturday, March 4, 2023 6:30 am – 10:00 am at the Warrensburg United Methodist Church. Pancakes, Sausage, Eggs, Biscuits & Gravy, etc. Adults: $10.00; Children (3-12) $5.00 with 3 and under Free.
Consider supporting the Lions’ Club in this project and thank them for their many services in the community including the Christmas Brotherhood Tree.

The Warrensburg Corn Festival committee would like to thank everyone who came out to support their Pancake and Sausage breakfast on Saturday, January 28. The turn-out was a-maiz-ing. Special thanks goes to the DaBurg for offering to host this fundraiser as well as those who assisted with cooking, serving, restocking, clean-up, selling 50/50 tickets, etc. $2,600 was donated for the breakfast and the 50/50 was $308.00.
Plans are well underway for this summer’s festival. It will be July 20 – 22.
They should be announcing shortly who some of the musical performers will be. Sponsorship letters will be sent within the next couple of weeks to those business and individuals who are able to sponsor many of the events held during the festival along with major items like the stage and tents. You can always become a “Festival Friend” with donations of $10.00 and higher. Forms for this can be found in each monthly newsletter or you can simply drop a check off at the Village Hall with “Festival Friend” noted in the memo line.

Donations are still being accepted for the Lourash children at Buena Vista National Bank, 121 Coffee Run, Casey’s, Warrensburg Cafe and the Village Hall. Currently the 4 children are in the custody of their maternal grandparents, who live in the Blue Mound area. They are being brought to Warrensburg-Latham schools daily for not only school but extracurricular activities. The grandparents have had to make some adjustments with adding 4 children to their home, the family pets, extra travel expenses, and other expenses associated with most families. Their needs are not just in the immediate day-to-day life but also long term needs.
