We're now on Thursday before the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl. Friday's the big game, and tonight, we're very fortunate to have two of the most prominent businesspeople here: Tom Walter (of Tasty Catering) and Mike Brennan, who is involved in the new 85-acre Technology Park that everyone's talking about.
"I'm glad that the mayor made the decision to sponsor this bowl, and I think it'll have a tremendous effect for the community of Elk Grove," said Walter, co-owner and chief culture officer at the catering company.
Added Brennan, chairman of Brennan Investment Group: "Mayor, your innovation and foresight to do this -- it's an amazing event. We are so grateful for Elk Grove Village sponsoring this. It's going to help the Elk Grove Technology Park a lot and I think that's going to help the village quite a bit, so thank you for doing this and enjoy the game tomorrow."
Next time will be the big game tomorrow. Watch and you're going to see Elk Grove everywhere around the world.
• Editor's Note: Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig Johnson is sending a daily journal from Nassau, Bahamas, in advance of the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl, to be played Friday. The village spent $300,000 to sponsor the college game, which uses the village's business marketing tagline.
