Planning is well underway for the 43rd annual A Day in Our Village, Oak Park’s annual festival celebrating diversity and community involvement, scheduled for Sun., June 5. Local groups wishing to attract volunteers, clients or new members, and civic-minded volunteers are invited to participate.
Last year more than 100 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 2016 A Day in Our Village celebration, call 708.358.5407 or email email@example.com.
