2019 Celebrate Woodridge
resize ComboLogo-FINAL v2.png2019: Exciting Milestone Year
This year is an exciting milestone for the Woodridge community, and we invite you to be a part of it! In 2019, the Village of Woodridge and Woodridge Park District will celebrate our 60th and 50th anniversaries of incorporation, respectively. The Village and Park District encourages community groups to pay tribute to this milestone year by incorporating an anniversary component into an existing event or program. Community organizations may apply for a Celebrate Woodridge Grant online. The grant guidelines and paper application are also available.

Woodridge’s present and vision for the future are firmly rooted in its past. These special anniversaries provide an opportunity to reflect on the many ways that organizations and individuals have contributed to the success of the Woodridge community. Please join us in celebrating Woodridge and the Park District in 2019!
