A Letter from the Mayor of Palos Park

Mayor John Mahoney


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 Park .
