Communications Coordinator Dear Residents,
Happy fall, Lombard. While we all love to cherish the warm months of summer, fall brings about a fresh start with the new school year and the colorful foliage for us to enjoy. You’ll notice our fall banners have gone up around town. While it might seem like something small, these autumn-themed banners help keep our main thoroughfares attractive and welcome visitors to our town. I think they look great and I hope you do, too.
The main feature in this edition of the Pride is about the William “Bill” Mueller Memorial Gazebo and I think it’s a great story for all of our residents to take a moment to read. Former President Mueller was an incredible person who brought enthusiasm and pride to Lombard. He was an advocate for the community and well-known all throughout the region. When the gazebo is fi nished, I hope you and your family will take time to stop by to visit and refl ect. Lombard is a wonderful place to live, work and play and Bill was someone who drove that mission for more than 18 years.
The week of Oct. 5 through Oct. 11 is Fire Prevention Week and serves as an excellent time to familiarize your household with safety precautions to prevent fi res. This year’s focus is on smoke detectors and the act of making sure your home’s detector is working properly. Join the Lombard Fire Department for its annual Open House from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8 at Fire Station 1, 50 E. St. Charles Rd. Lombard. It will be a wonderful education experience for the whole family. This edition of the Pride is also fi lled with important seasonal reminders, including information about the Village’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection on Oct. 4, leaf-pick up beginning Oct. 20 and a reminder about the Recreational Vehicle Ordinance to go in effect beginning Nov. 1. We’ll be honoring our country’s veterans on Nov. 11 with our annual
Veteran’s Day Ceremony at the Sunken Gardens at Lombard Common Park. This is a time when we take a moment to personally thank those who fought for our freedom. With the help of the VFW Lilac Post 1185, we’ll make sure to give thanks.
If you have questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at my offi ce at (630) 620-5710 or giagnoriok@ villageofl ombard.org
Sincerely, Keith T. Giagnorio Lombard Village President
