Hello Friends!

Fall is on its way! This is my favorite time of year. I love seeing all the trees turn colors and truly enjoy the campfire and sweeter weather. I hope you all enjoyed your summer time activities with family and friends. We truly enjoyed our summer here in the parks, and enjoyed seeing all of you out enjoying what the Sandwich Park District has to offer. This summer we had numerous fun programs and events to offer. This year we had a HUGE turnout for our Freedom Day’s Parade and Fireworks. It warmed my heart to see so many of Sandwich’s residents out celebrating our country’s independence! Though the summer is coming to an end, it is not a time to be sad, but a time to look forward to the fun activities ahead for the fall and winter.

Throughout this guide you will find many of your favorite “family tradition” events and even some new ones to add to the list. Join us for our annual Harvest Moon Hayrides and Flashlight Egg Hunt. This event is always one to bring the family out to enjoy the Midwest moonlight around the campfire and on a traditional tractor ride. Also, this fall we have a NEW Movie in the Park. However, this movie is for the adults! We will be showing a scary movie in the park and anyone under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Join us for a fun date night out at the park. This winter we will again partner with the Sandwich Chamber of Commerce for our annual downtown Christmas event. We will be lighting the beautiful downtown Christmas Tree and hosting lots of fun activities. There will even be a special guest from the North Pole. This winter we will also be going back to MSI (Museum of Science and Industry) for Christmas Around the World! If you have not seen this amazing display of trees decorated to represent Christmas traditions from other countries, then you won’t want to miss this trip! Bring the family and come along with us.

We have big news! As you may or may not know, we have been working hard for some time now on providing Sandwich with a Dog Park. Well, we are finally able to move forward with getting some physical work completed! We have plans completed and we hope to have some construction started in the Fall of 2022. We are so honored and excited to provide a special place in town for our furry friends to call their own. We look forward too many years of enjoyment out in the Dog Park with you!

Have you ever thought of giving back to your community but don’t know where to fit in? Well, the Park District is the perfect place to give back. We are looking for some fun and energetic Sandwich residents to join our board. Our board is made up of seven Sandwich Park District residents who have the drive to better our park system in Sandwich. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a board member please feel free to reach out to me and I would love to fill you in!

We hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season!
