A.C.O. taking sealed bids for "Name a Street"

Posted: Tuesday, Apr 2nd, 2013

AMBOY - A tradition started in 1997 to honor a loved one’s memory by naming a street after that person for one year is being done again this year. The Amboy Civic Organization (A.C.O.) is taking sealed bids to name the street north of the business district until Friday, April 19, 2013. The sign will be hung on May 1, and remain there for one year. The sign will then be given to the successful bidder.

Currently the street is named after Howard and Ruth Shaw. Previous honorees were Douglas Blaine, Louis Grasser, Doug Antoine, Dave Yentzer, James “Mort” Hinkle, James Mead, Bob Smith, Lisa Nauman, Dave Payne, Dale Etheridge, Elmer “Rocky” Sensenig, Arnie Stahr, Bob Machen, and Jeff “Bodine” Bonnell.

The money raised will be given to the Pankhurst Memorial Library. The minimum bid is $200 and will be accepted at the Amboy City Hall.
