A committee led by Barbara Jostes established a Living Memorial Tree Park in 1991. There are now approximately 150 trees in the park. We currently have a list of 14 Illinois Native trees that can be purchased to honor or remember a loved one. If you would like more information, please call Village Hall at 768-3036 or stop by to pick up an application. Every year, the Village holds a dedication for the community to honor those who have purchased a tree. If you would like to have a tree planted in time for this year’s dedication scheduled for October 14th, we do need your application turned in by September 1st.
