In an effort to make the picnic a greener event, we are asking residents to donate their tin cans to be used in the recycled craft project. Tin cans from items such as canned vegetables, fruit, beans, or soup will be used to make pencil holders at this year’s CommUNITY Picnic. Please wash out your cans and try to eliminate any sharp edges. You can drop off your cans at the Levy Center, Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, Ecology Center, Main Library, Central Street Library, and Chicago & Main Branch Library. Additionally, over 80 volunteers are needed to make the picnic a successful event. Individuals, families, or groups interested in volunteering can visit Community Picnic Volunteer Sign-Up or call (847)448-4311.
