South Beloit is celebrating our 100th birthday in 2017! We have planned a four day celebration that will take place in August, 2017 in conjunction with the South Beloit Fire Department Corn Boil. We would like to personally invite each and every South Beloit business, resident, civic group or club to help us celebrate!
Wheeler House volunteers are working on a Centennial Book! The book is a compilation of South Beloit history and the perfect opportunity for local businesses to be remembered for generations to come! To be included in the South Beloit Centennial Book, please contact John Patrick as soon as possible, at the number listed.
Your business employees and families are welcome to walk in the community-wide parade at no charge. You are encouraged to build a float, hand out candy and even promotional giveaways! We are striving for a fun, local, family parade.
Please feel free to contact one of our officers if you have any ideas, questions or suggestions!!
