Project: Lighted Outdoor Display for the Palos Heights Recreation Center
The Palos Heights Woman’s Club’s Membership approved their current project, a Lighted Outdoor Display for the Palos Heights Parks and Recreation Center (“Rec Center”) on Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015.
“IT IS THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE PALOS HEIGHTS WOMAN’S CLUB BOARD OF DIRECTORS THAT WE ADOPT THE FUNDING OF AN OUTDOOR SIGN FOR THE PALOS HEIGHTS RECREATION DEPARTMENT.”
The PHWC members have been meeting at the Rec Center for years and believe this project would be a great way to pay back and show their appreciation.
VISIBILITY! VISIBILITY! VISIBILITY!
The current sign has traditional static signage. The new lighted outdoor color display can be programmed remotely and be seen from greater distances, especially during inclement weather. It will promote upcoming events, convey weather advisories, and share important community information. Once the renovation of the Rec Center is completed, the new lighted outdoor display will be its crowning jewel. The club is hoping to raise the needed monies over a two year period.

Members of the Palos Heights Woman’s Club Project Committee attended the ground breaking ceremony for the new Recreation Department on September 1, 2015. Featured from left to right are Sherry Ter Maat, Chairman, Mike Leonard of the Recreation Department and Eileen Lunter, member of the Project Committee.
Last spring the club members voted to donate the funds for the signage in the front of the Rec Center as their current club project. The Pig Roast held at Lake Katherine in early August helped raise funds to go forth, but the club will be holding on-going Ways & Means activities to raise the monies needed.
Some of the club’s past projects include enlarging and furnishing room 104 (where the club holds their meetings) and adding a kitchen when the building was purchased from the school district many years ago. The club also built the Gazebo at Community Park, established the Anniversary Garden at Lake Katherine, purchased the bike rack at the Art Garden and has been a long supporter of the Palos Heights Library, donating the circulation desks in all three libraries, giving a large donation each year and donating the bronze statue “Booked For A Day” seated on the bench.
The Palos Heights Woman’s Club’s Project Committee gathered at Mama Vesuvio’s East for dinner and discussion of the club’s latest project – an outdoor lighted display sign for the Palos Heights Recreation Center. The club will raise the needed monies for this project over the next two years with various fundraising events held throughout the area.
