From March 15th through May 31st we will be conducting our Spring membership drive. Let us all slow down a moment and appreciate this place we call home. In La Grange and La Grange Park we see the daily affirmation of true community. It is indeed this strong backdrop of family, friends, education, culture, and Midwestern values that enriches our lives here. It was, and still is, the bedrock upon which Franklin D. Cossitt founded the village. It is also a feeling of grounding and continuity that keep these values alive in our vibrant and modern community. Our heritage needs to be preserved and celebrated to bridge the past, present, and future for generations to come. Every day that we at the Society welcome a visitor, host a school group, engage with the community, research a home, or discover the many treasures in our collection, we are reminded of how our members make it all possible and keep our community legacy thriving.
If you are not a member, please consider joining today and help us continue to preserve the past and grow into the future. All new members from March 15th to May 31st will receive a $10 gift certificate valid at many La Grange businesses. Membership details and online payment can be viewed by clicking here.
