Tim & Thom McNamee Citizen of the Year Grand Marshal


Honor and Community


The Tim and Thom McNamee Citizen of the Year Award was created to honor local residents who have made the Dundee Township better because of their commitment to their community. Tim and Thom McNamee were lifelong area residents and dedicated to the Dundee Township Community.  After high school, and earning the rank of Eagle Scouts, they paid their way through college and then law school.  After graduating from John Marshall Law School, they started a practice in Carpentersville.  The twins also opened a bar called Wallstreet that would later emerge as Bandito Barney's.  Bandito’s inspired the twins to continue rehabbing buildings and homes in the area.  After Tim’s death, Thom spent his energies revitalizing the downtown East Dundee area.  Their commitment to their hometown was the catalyst to recognize others and their dedication to the Dundee Township area.


The tradition continues!
