Balloons Over Vermilion 2019 & Mr. Julius Hegeler II Tribute

Dear Vermilion Advantage Members:

As you know by now, my husband, Wayne, as a hobby enjoys videotaping and memorializing events and milestones within the community. Following you will find five different clips for your enjoyment.  The first is a tribute to Mr. Julius W. Hegeler II.  We are so grateful for all that Julius did for our community/county and know his legacy for education and events will live on for generations.

Likewise, many thanks to the organizers, volunteers, balloonists and crew and sponsors ( and Mother Nature)  for making this year’s Balloons Over Vermilion another overwhelming success.  This is such an amazing event for families in our area and we are so appreciative to the many that work so hard to make it happen.  If you were unable to attend, below are a few clips of some of the events that took place during the Balloons weekend.
