November 12, 2014

Gerstad Builders Logo The holiday season is just around the corner! As the streets begin to sparkle and merchants make preparations for crowds of shoppers, residents near Gerstad Builders’ communities are looking forward to many special upcoming events near their new homes in McHenry, Poplar Grove and Richmond, Illinois.

Residents of Liberty Trails in McHenry will want to mark their calendars for the Christmas Walk and Winter Taste-Fest happening in the downtown area, scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014. Families can enjoy going for a ride on the trolley, hearing the sounds of local carolers, and satisfying their appetites with delicious treats from more than 15 local restaurants.

In Poplar Grove, the Parks and Advisory Committee is currently organizing the first annual Christmas Celebration to be held in Village Hall on Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014 at 4:30 p.m., just minutes away from the new homes at The Trails of Dawson Creek.
