Planning is well underway for the 44th annual A Day in Our Village, Oak Park’s annual festival celebrating diversity and community involvement, scheduled for Sun., June 4. Local groups wishing to attract clients or new members, and civic-minded volunteers are invited to participate. Last year more than 160 Oak Park organizations set up activity and information booths in Scoville Park at Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue, local restaurants sold food nearby and the Park District of Oak Park sponsored activities in Rehm Park. In addition to participants, volunteers are needed to donate an hour or two of time well before the event, distributing promotional literature and hanging posters around the community. Volunteers also are needed to help on the day of the event. For more information on participating or volunteering to help with the 2017 A Day in Our Village celebration, call 708.358.5407 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oak Park offers a variety of services that can be accessed online from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Some of the services are managed directly by the Village, while others are third-party vendors authorized by the Village to conduct transactions.
