The Lindenhurst Park District this past year determined to recognize on a larger scale, those individuals, organizations, and governmental bodies that have continuously contributed their time and resources for the Lindenhurst Park District and particularly our community. Once this was determined, the Lindenhurst Park District submitted a Community Services Individual/Group, to the Statewide Organization of the Illinois Association of Park Districts and Illinois Park and Recreation Association. Both organizations concurred with the Lindenhurst Park District and presented the recognition plaque to Lindenhurst Park District Executive Director, Dave Mohr.
This award was presented at the local level at a Regular Meeting of the Board of Park Commissioners on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. The Lindenhurst Park District presented the 2018 Community Service Award to Officer Mike Kirkpatrick; for his years of support through cooperation and volunteerism to the Lindenhurst Community. Officer Kirkpatrick has supported a wide variety of Lindenhurst Park District events such as our 5K/1-mile Fun Run/Walk, Live Music in the Parks, Kids Rockin’ in the Park, Bike Rodeo, Touch-a-Truck, Haunted Trail, Holiday Tree Lighting and is actively involved in making our community better and more responsive. Through his efforts, our community has benefited.
