Did you become a new U.S. citizen in the past year? If the answer in “yes”, then you’re invited to a ceremony in your honor.
Wednesday, June 26
The Centre of Elgin
Elgin’s 21st annual New Citizen Recognition Program will be held as part of Elgin’s regular City Council meeting.
As an honoree, you will be provided with a certificate suitable for framing and a U.S. flag pin. Mayor Kaptain and the members of Elgin’s City Council will personally congratulate you during a formal ceremony, so we encourage you to bring your family. People who live or work in Elgin, have taken citizenship classes in the city, or have applied for citizenship through local agencies are eligible to be in the ceremony.
Please call Halina Kopec at 847-214-6975 or Veian D’Abreu at 847-695-9050 to participate. This ceremony is coordinated by Elgin’s New Citizen Recognition Committee - a group of community volunteers including representatives from Elgin Community College, the Gail Borden Public Library, the Literacy Connection, and Centro de Informacion.
