Connecting Neighbors with the Little Free Library
Spread the joy of reading! A brand new Little Free Library has been installed at the Elk Trail Recreation Center, 160 W. Elk Trail. Based on an honor system, people may take a book and leave a book. The purpose of the Little Free Library is to promote the love of reading, to share your favorite stories and to bring community members together. This Little Free Library is brought to you by the Carol Stream Rotary Club and is maintained by the Carol Stream Park District staff.
Help us “Raise the Flag for Memorial Park”
The Daily Herald interviewed Jim Benzin of the Carol Stream VFW, whose ideas to spruce up Memorial Park led to a fundraising task force and plans for major renovations. His words endear us to never forget all the men and women who serve and have served our country and those who died for it. We are also reminded that $200,000 needs to be raised so the park can be presented on Memorial Day, May 29, 2017. As this is a tight deadline, we could use some help. If you would like to “Raise the Flag”, a donation can be made through the Carol Stream Parks Foundation. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-784-6100.
