Response to the Ladd-opoly board game has been overwhelming!.  A limited edition of only 250 games will be produced and are expected to arrive in mid-November just in time for Christmas giving. Preorder forms are now available at the Village Clerk's office, North Central Bank and Special Effect Barber/Beauty Salon and prepayment of $35 per game is required.  When the games arrive, they will be available for pickup in Ladd only.  Don't be disappointed - order your game today!  For more information, contact Rhonda @ (815) 894-2440.  All proceeds from Ladd-opoly will benefit Ladd's 125th Anniversary Celebration in July 2015.
