I received today (Thursday June 23, 2022) the below photo in my email. The photo shows the dedication on Wednesday June 22, 2022 of Water Street in honor of James “Jimmy” Weberpal by the Village of Burlington in Burlington Township Kane County Illinois.

Jimmy is the son of Rose Schlick. Rose was the daughter of Joseph and Mary Anne (Armbrust) Schlick. Jimmy prior to passing away in the spring lived in his grandfather’s home at the corner of Main and Water Streets in downtown Burlington for many years. He will be missed by his family members and by the citizens of Burlington. Thanks to Elaine Crawford for emailing me the photo!
