Hello Everyone:

Here in Illinois, the corn's in the ground and starting to grow. The Cubs,
Sox and Cardinals are well underway and playing very well. The legislature
is rushing to finish their work at the last minute.

What can this all mean? One thing, it's time for the 2021 ICB Summer
Raffle. Again this year, you have a chance to win 50% of all funds raised.
In recent times, that amounted to about $900. The more who play, the bigger
the pot. So buy your tickets now and encourage your friends and families to
as well.

Tickets are $5 each, or five tickets for $20. The more tickets you buy, the
more you save. There are several ways to participate:
