Welcome to Thomson, Illinois, where the river meets the town. Situated along the banks of the great Mississippi, where you can pull up a chair, watch the sun go down and dip your toes into the mighty Mississippi river, all in one place.

What a great Memorial Day weekend!  The Thomson Alumni banquet welcomed back a record number of former students to a fun-filled “Prom”.  It was so much fun to see the folks who dressed the part!  The school gym was beautifully decorated and former classmates were having a great time looking at the old yearbooks and photos lining the hallways.  The school gym was rocking to the music of Coup De Ville and I can’t wait to see the photos!  Kudos to the committees and workers who made it memorable!

Don’t forget about the Thomson Garage Sales on June 5 & 6. If you want to be on the map, pick up a form at the VillageHall or Library.  Village Clean-Up Day will be Saturday, June 13 behind the fire station for Village residents. In addition to the Allied Waste dumpters for waste and bulky items, Self Help Enterprises will once again accept recyclable scrap and electronics.  For more information, stop by Village Hall for a flyer or read the notice posted on the outdoor bulletin board.
