I’m very proud to announce that Tri County Special Recreation Association’s Wolves Volleyball team has captured the victory for State Division 6.

Their coaches, Kathy Ochromowicz and Meghan Kuchyak have released this statement:

“Congratulations, Wolves Volleyball team, on winning State for Division 6 and for your outstanding record of 13-1 for the season! Throughout the season and tournament play, each team member has played with heart, given 100 percent, supported each other and demonstrated awesome sportsmanship. As always, it was a joy and privilege to coach the Wolves. Thank you for your integrity, selflessness and eagerness to do your best each game. The memories of the season are priceless.”

Anita Madro won first place at the District Bowling Tournament Oct. 20 in Addison. She bowled a total of 153 to take home a gold medal. Congratulations, Anita!

I promised you an announcement of the award winners at our annual Recognition Dinner Dance, which took place on Oct. 18. Here they are:

A special Certificate of Appreciation for his many years of friendship and service was presented to Lemont Park District’s Ken Novak. It was a happy, memorable evening including dinner and lots of dancing.

Don’t forget to sign up for our free family holiday party on Dec. 12.

As I write this, our Winter/Spring Program Guide is going to press. There are many exciting programs being offered. We want to remind everyone to get their updated annual information form in to our office before registering for next year’s programs. We are offering a trip to the Smoky Mountains and Dollywood that promises to be a trip to remember in the upcoming program guide available the first week of December. Visit our website – or stop by our office or the Lemont Park District to get your copy.

Finally, thanks to all for supporting for our Christmas wreath fundraiser. We have a limited amount of items left to sell. For more info, call Brenda at 815-407-1819 ext. 201. Orders can be picked up at our office the week before Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to you all from all of us.
