Throughout its history, the Foundation Board has been comprised of many community leaders including current and past Village Council members, Park District commissioners, teachers, and School Board members.  At least five board members were named "Citizen-of-the Year" by the Chamber of Commerce ... not to mention other involvement throughout the Village.
