Thornwood Park Concert

By | Events | No Comments

In September the Ouilmette Foundation co-sponsored a Concert in the Park night at Thornwood Park which drew more than 300 neighbors for an evening of music, food and fun. The Ouilmette Foundation plans to sponsor additional concerts in appropriate neighborhood parks during 2015 as part of its mission to enrich and enhance community life.

Looking Ahead

In addition to these two inaugural events, the Ouilmette Foundation is now turning its attention to proposed projects which include the renovation of the Keay Nature Center on Hibbard Road and the creation of an environmental education program that would combine the strengths and resident expertise of our park district, school districts and village resources. That long-term project could provide our children with opportunities that include evaluating water treatment facilities and related studies pertaining to land and air pollution.
