Christmas songs were sung, a traditional turkey dinner was served and Santa handed out gifts to everyone. But the "WOW" gift was presented by Mrs. Deieke to the Huntley Lions in the manner of a check for $10,000. Mrs. Deieke spoke on the Foundation for the Blind and told us of the Huntley Room located there. The Huntley Lions and the Lioness are very proud of the work they have done to support these causes and their other community projects. The check from Mrs. Deieke is to insure that the Huntley Lions can go on with their wonderful work. The Lions will be forever greatful to Mrs. Deieke for her generosity. She was given a standing ovation by the Lions and their guests. Village Board Minutes The Huntley village board of trustees held its regular meeting on Dec. 5,1985, at 8:00 pm in the village hall.

Mr. Mike LaBarera from Pentaplex addressed the board, thanking them for their helpful attitudes and promising continued cooperation. He invited trustees to visit their building at any convenient time.

Samples of waste are being taken daily for testing. When norms have been established, testing will be done less often. Mr. Schwegel pointed out that state EPA permits have been granted, and a certified waste water operator runs the system. A representative of ADT will meet with the village on Monday to discuss the type of alarm system suited to our situation. Some type of alarm-a light or buzzer-will alert the disposal plant and perhaps the police in the event unacceptable waste levels are reached.
