Early Saturday morning they start with a clean slate at Pioneer Park on Dearborn
Street and have only a few hours to get the entire event up and running

Signs were especially difficult as the wind picked up first thing in the morning... 
but Capt. Jim O'brien knew how to make the whole thing come together


Signs had to be staked down




Fishn for Heroes coozies, hats and T-shirts were available for sale


Coffee and donuts for everyone that helped

All the volunteers were greatly appreciated

Always liked doing window portraits

But today... it was all about the chili
