Last chance to have holiday tree picked up
The week of January 14 is the last opportunity to have holiday trees picked up by the Village's waste hauler. Trees will be picked up on regular trash and recycling collection days, but only through next week. Trees should be placed in the regular collection area next to the refuse cart. Only residents with no alley should put trees at the curb. Since the trees are mulched, all tinsel, decorations and stands should be removed, and trees should not be in plastic disposal bags. Wreaths and garlands are held together with wire and are not recyclable, so place them in the refuse cart. For more information call 708.358.5700 or e-mail email@example.com..
Volunteers needed for A Day in Our Village
June may seem like a long way from January, but planning already is well underway for the 40th annual A Day in Our Village, Oak Park's annual festival celebrating diversity and community involvement. This year's event is scheduled for Sun., June 2. A variety of volunteers are needed to help promote and staff the event, which includes activity booths representing Oak Park civic, cultural, social service, educational, religious and business organizations, as well as demonstrations, entertainment and food provided by local restaurants. Anyone interested in volunteering — or more information — is urged to call 708.358.5407 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
