The Village Park and Recreation Committee continues to develop funding opportunities for the existing and future needs of the recreation program. The Village has developed a signage program that allows business to donate money to the Park and Recreation program, and in return the Village constructs a sign that is showcased on the Villages softball diamonds from May through September. The Park and Recreation Committee are always open for donations as well.
