2016 Salute to Veterans Thanks Area Service Men and Women

The second annual Stickney Salute to Veterans, an event that honors area residents who have served our country in the military, was held this past December 7th, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Events were held at both the North Building and the LSV Senior Center.

Township President Louis S. Viverito remarked that "Stickney Township was incorporated 5 years after the attack on our country. It was the beginning of a 70 year tradition of service to the community. When we held the first Salute to Veterans event in 2015 it was my hope that it would be the start of a new tradition in the township. I was honored to address all of those who attended both as the Township President and as a Korean War Veteran."

"Things have changed greatly in the past 70 years, but township government remains a constant — continuing to provide services specific to residents both younger and older. Unfortunately, there is a growing debate in our government regarding what value, if any, we offer the community. Some say township government is unnecessary and would rather Cook County or Springfield step in to replace it. I hope that you disagree and will help to defend Stickney Township and all the services that we provide to the community."

Hundreds of veterans and their families attended events at the two seperate locations which included presentations by children attending the Stickney Township Pre-school programs and a luncheon. Musical entertainment at the North Building was provided by Maureen Christine while attendees at LSV were entertained by the musical group "Sweet Reminders."

Not Too Big, Not Too Small – Stickney Township is Just Right

The first annual Illinois Township Government Day was held on Wednesday, September 21. The event was a coordinated effort by Stickney Township and the Illinois Township Association of Senior Cintizen Services Committies intended to highlight the value of the services provided by township government.

Open Houses featured activities at all building locations including the South Clinic, North Building, Central Building and the LSV Senior Center.

Elected township officials and staff were on hand to answer questions, tour the facilities and provide important information about our programs, services and resources.

According to Township Supervisor Louis S. Viverito township government is under state scrutiny.

"Our assets are completely paid for and we run in the black, something that is rare for a unit of government. Yet, there is talk of abolishing townships or rolling the assets into other units of government. Honestly, do you think the State or County could do a better job of providing the services that we offer as affordably as we do?" questions Supervisor Viverito.

"Our goal is to increase public awareness of the valuable services Stickney Township provides, services that will likely cost taxpayers a great deal more if they were left in the hands of a larger unit of government."

Township Day at Stickney Township featured an intergeneraltional event at the North Building with brought together seniors with children enrolled in the township pre-school program and their families; a $2 lunch featuring prime rib at the S LSV Senior Center; a truck rodeo at the Central Building; the weekly Farmers Market at Central and free ice cream courtesy of Andy's at all locations.

Community Health Improvement: Your Voice Counts and Your Opinion Matters
