Lyons Peppermint Days 20th Anniversary
Lyons - Senator Mike Nozzolio recently stopped to acknowledge the volunteers at the annual Lyons Peppermint Days Festival which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. The Peppermint Days Festival was established as a way to celebrate the history of the Hotchkiss Company. At one time the company produced over a third of all the peppermint oil manufactured in the United States.
