The Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society held its annual meeting Nov. 19 at the Elmcrest Banquets in Elmwood Park. Carol Del Conte, Anne Ferri, Diane Menza and Sarah Koch-Smicklas were recognized for their hard work as co-chairs of this year's Showcase House fundraiser. The Community Leadership Award was presented to Catherine Amato and the Oak Park Department of Public Health's Family Case Management program.
