Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Summer is in full swing. I hope you are enjoying walks on our bicycle/pedestrian pathways or even around our wonderful Oakbrook Center Shopping Mall. Encourage your friends to join you in enjoying the fresh air and new sights - it will help both your health and that of our Village when you walk and shop in Oak Brook!
I hope you had the chance to attend the annual Taste of Oak Brook co-sponsored by the McDonald’s Corporation on Monday, July 3rd. It was another successful event. Returning restaurants did very well and we even welcomed Michael Jordan’s new restaurant to the mix. Musical entertainment was very well received this year and produced entertainment for all age groups. Two students were also recognized for the Athlete of the Year Award, Jessica Lee from Hinsdale Central for participation in Golf and Sam Fathizadeh also from Hinsdale Central for participation in Cross County and Track and Field. Along with McDonalds Corporation, I want to thank the dedicated sponsors who also contributed to this community event: Evergreen Bank, Inland Real Estate, Ancel Glink, Christopher Burke Engineering, Paramedic Services Inc. (sponsored the children’s activities), Republic Services, Sysco, VISOgraphics, and the Hub Group, Loyola Medicine and the Oak Brook Park District had guest booths for people to visit.
The Village conducted another bid process for our Electric Municipal Aggregation Program for all residential and qualified small businesses. Dynegy Energy Services, LLC was chosen as the new provider. Beginning in August, Dynegy will provide pricing of .06675 per kHw which is good through October 2018. We are excited to bring further savings to our residents. As you may recall, the Village Board outsourced the Polo Program. Partnering again with Pineoak Partners LLC and in doing so greatly enhanced the polo program and having even larger attendance numbers than last year. The 2017 Polo Season for rest of the summer promises to be even bigger and better. Additional information on ticket prices, sponsorships or advertisement opportunities and upcoming polo matches can be found at www.oakbrookpoloclub.com. Come out and enjoy some spectacular Polo summer fun!
Let’s not forget the Sports Core. The Oak Brook Golf Course will be offering Golf Lessons for both the beginners and the avid golf enthusiasts looking to enhance their game. The Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club will bring many changes for this upcoming year. Be sure to check out the NEW summer camps offered for children of various ages.
