Dellamano: Thank you to our Lemont Park District partners

The Lemont Park District adopted an updated Strategic Plan last summer with great refocus on implementing the district VALUES in all operations.

These values – Valued Community, Accountability & Fiscal Responsibility, Lasting Partnerships, Ultimate Guest Services, Exceptional Communication and Safety First – serve as the structure to the district’s goals and operations.

One of the LPD’s VALUES that I have the opportunity to really concentrate on is “Lasting Partnerships.” I’m honored to be the district’s liaison to the Lemont Park Foundation as well as our loyal sponsors. In addition, I am pleased to work with our intergovernmental partners such as the Village of Lemont, Lemont Township and the Lemont Chamber of Commerce, among others, on various programming and joint marketing initiatives. 

The Lemont Park Foundation is a nonprofit organization that exists to help improve, provide and expand the Park District’s parks, programs and facilities and resources to improve the quality of life for community residents.

The Foundation board is comprised of area residents whom volunteer their time to passionately carryout the purpose of the group. From the Independence Day Beer Garden fundraiser, to the annual “FORE The Community” Golf Outing, the Park Foundation works diligently to raise funds for the Helping Hand Award program that enables many local families to experience programs such as preschool in which they would not have been able to afford.

Save the date – this year’s golf outing will take place at Gleneagles Country Club on Sept. 18.

Please visit for registration and sponsorship information. We are looking forward to the continued generosity of our community businesses, residents, CORE Members and our district’s vendors for support. Thank you so much to the Foundation and all the community supporters. 

Lemont Park District sponsors are the best!

As I always tell our partners, advertising and sponsoring district events is a win-win situation. Not only will you reach new individuals in your target market, but you’ll help support the Park District in providing a quality program or event for the community.

I’d like to extend a very special thanks to our 2014 sponsors – ATI Physical Therapy, Citgo, Zlan Systems, Pollyanna Brewing Company, Country Financial, Suburban Bank & Trust, Jeffrey LaMorte Salon & Day Spa and Kids Plus Pediatric Dentistry. Our events would not be as successful as they continue to be. Fall Fest and other special event sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more info, just give us a call at 630-257-6787.

Finally, working with our intergovernmental partners is a pleasure.

From our Independence Day Extravaganza fireworks show in partnership with the Village of Lemont and the Lemont Township, to the new “Lemontster Days!” – a community series of Halloween-themed events, working together is very beneficial.

This “spooktacular” celebration will be brought to you by the Lemont Park District, Village of Lemont, Lemont Township, Lemont Chamber of Commerce, Lemont Historical Society, Lemont School Districts, the new Little Mountain Community Theatre and the Lemont Library.

From the chamber’s new Home and Business Decorating contest to Lemont Park District’s Fall Fest to the Village’s annual Halloween Hoedown, Lemontster Days is sure to be a hit. See your Fall Memory Maker for all the details… in Lemont mailboxes at the end of August! 

Carrie Dellamano is the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Lemont Park District.
