It was great teamin’ up with you, Oswego Football. We hope that we helped fuel your hunger for some Friday night lights!
National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Millions of neighbors take part in NNO across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August.
Residents interacted with police officers and K-9 units, and were able to get a close look at squad cars, motorcycles, ATV’s, and other equipment. Guests also participated in safety and fire demos conducted by law enforcement personnel. In addition, there was a fingerprint station, a kid zone, a DJ, and deep dish!
Guests enjoyed the evening at Wilder Park viewing The Secret Life of Pets and ate slices of deep dish. There are two more movies scheduled to be shown this summer!
Movies in the Park is organized through a partnership between Elmhurst Park District and Elmhurst Public Library, and is presented by The Schiller Team, Edward-Elmhurst Health, and Suburban Bank & Trust.
At this family-friendly bash, adults and children enjoyed a live concert, games, face painting, and of course, some deep dish pizza!
If you missed it, don’t worry because the River Forest Park District is hosting these free parties all summer long! Check out their website for a list of dates.
This fundraising event was sponsored by the District 205 Foundation, and proceeds will benefit Elmhurst Public School students. There were about 500 pizza-loving attendees, and at the end of the night, proceeds totaled $6,000!
There’s nothing like a first place victory on top of supporting a great cause. We’ll be back next year to defend our title!
Preschoolers and their families had the opportunity to explore an assortment of community vehicles such as a police car, fire truck, trolley, tractor, and more during Naperville Park District’s annual event. The kids might not have had their driver’s licenses just yet; however, they were able to sit behind the wheel and pretend!
