As you probably already know, 2014 is the
Village’s Centennial year. Centennial summer is upon us. I hope you have
had a chance to enjoy some of the Centennial events that have taken
place thus far.
Please bring your
friends and family out to the Village Green for the Knights of Columbus
Flag Day event on Thursday, June 12th beginning at 7:00 PM. The
following Thursday, June 19th, is the Annual ‘Concert in The Park’.
Picnicking and pre-concert kids activities begin at 5:00 PM this year,
Palos Fine Arts Scholarship announcements will be made at 6:45 PM and
the Outcast Jazz Band will entertain from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Save
space on your calendar for the popular Autumn In The Park Festival,
Friday evening September 19th and all day Saturday, September 20th.
The Centennial Book ‘Images of
America~Palos Park’, written by Librarian Jeannine Kacmar, is still
available at the Library and the Village Hall. This book takes you
through the first one hundred years of this unique and special Village
we call home. The book will next be presented by Jeannine on Thursday,
October 9th at 7:00 PM at the Recreation Center.
The list of the Centennial events for the
remainder of this year is in this newsletter issue. We have some great
events planned to mark this special occasion and hope you will join us
to celebrate. More information can be found on our website.
In the meantime, enjoy a beautiful
Centennial summer in Palos Park. Since 1914 the residents that came
before have shaped this Village into such a wonderful place to live and
raise a family. I am truly grateful for what is the Village of Palos
