Need service hours?  There are a lot of great opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the last bit of warm weather while volunteering:

  • The City of Hometown is hosting their weekly car show Wednesday evenings
  • The Oak Lawn Park District and Lake Katherine Nature Preserve are each hosting Monarch Festivals this weekend
