As our community grows, so too grows our impact on the environment including unsightly and potentially harmful litter. You can adopt a highway, or join to assist those who already have. It’s good low-impact exercise, healthful fresh air, and a way to meet good neighbors you’ll be glad you got to know. Skeptical? Contact Montgomery Trustee Stan Bond to learn more and get some family friendly exercise!
Saving thousands of dollars, our Beautification Committee organized art volunteers to restore the entryway signs to Montgomery IL at a total cost of $140 for paint and brushes.
In the fall of 2005 Marion and I started a neighborhood cookout that came to be known as ChiliFest. This neighborhood event brings our community of Fairfield Way and Foxmoor together, while also raising funds to support the important work of our Neighborhood Watch. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors and enjoy the true benefits of community living.
The Montomery Beautification Committee, which I chair as part of my Village Trustee duties, has launched another new program to encourage beauty in our neighborhoods. We now have an annual program to recognize flower beds of our many residents with “Green Thumbs.”
Residents can nominate their own properties or those of a neighbor. From entries submitted, volunteer judges help determine which properties and property owners should be recognized for their success in making our neighborhoods more colorful and more attactive for everyone to enjoy. Colorful plantings also encourage butterflies, hummingbirds and they, too, make the village summertime all that much more enjoyable.
The power of volunteerism is strong, and we hope you agree that working together, we can all make Montgomery a special place that “”Feels Like Home.”
