This Saturday is the 10th annual Shop Small Saturday across the nation. In Kane we have decided to make shopping small not just on Saturday, but during the entire holiday season. To do that, we have 33 Kane businesses with coupons to be used between November 29th – December 24th.
It’s November’s history night! We are at the Depot with Denny Driscoll from the Kane Historic Preservation Society and he shares from the journal of Elizabeth Kane when she wrote on Thanksgiving Day 1868. (You’ll get to see how beautiful her handwriting was.)
The blue lights are on in Evergreen Park! Kim and Bill Cecchetti tell the story of how it got started.
Get down here and check it out!
Last night we brought back Wednesday Night History Night for the first time since the 100 Days of Kane, PA project ended.

We started 100 Days of Kane, PA with Days 1 & 2 on Alumni Weekend and are wrapping up with Days 99 & 100 on Homecoming weekend.
Today we hear from Kane Athletic Director Jason Barner. He shares about how he ended up in Kane, what he loves about teaching and coaching, and why he loves Kane.
As we have heard all along the 100 Days, the Kane Area School District has always been great. Today Jack Hedlund shares stories of his time bring a Kane student and stories from when he was high school principal and assistant to the superintendent.
It’s Wednesday night so it’s history night! And it’s the last one for 100 Days. But don’t worry, we will continue to have history nights sometime in the future.
Tonight John Marconi, Wendy Oakes and Denny Driscoll share one last short story each about Kane’s history.
