The ceremony is open to the public and lasts 20 minutes.

Chief Judge Robert Spence and Associate Judge Clint Hull will address the crowd along with CASA Kane County Executive Director Gloria Bunce. Participants will pause for a moment of silence acknowledging local victims of child abuse and neglect.

Food will be provided after the ceremony, courtesy of Pockets of Aurora. The event is also being sponsored by The Exchange Club of the Tri-Cities.
