Wow oh wow, what a strange start to the summer it has been! We have gone from 90 plus degree days, down to rain and 43 on the day I write this letter. Summer is just around the corner, and warmer weather is sure to be joining us again very soon! We are seeing pools at local Park Districts, Community Centers, Residential Communities and private clubs begin to open, which is always a sure sign of the warmth, and fun that is Summer in Chicagoland.

We received the news of concerts coming back, over 50% of adults being vaccinated, festivals starting up and businesses opening to more and more people. Events are back, and we at the Chamber are thrilled to see people beginning to walk through downtown more and begin to visit our partners throughout the community.

With all the great announcements of pools, events, fests, and more, we are excited to continue to announce that our Annual Chamber Golf Outing will be on July 13th, 2021 at Seven Bridges Golf Club. We hope to see everyone on the course with us, and we hope to continue to be able to see you all more and more throughout the summer months.

We are pleased to also announce that we were able to do an in-person Ribbon Cutting in May for the first time in 8 months. We look forward to doing more ribbon cuttings with our new businesses throughout the summer.

Expanded Outdoor Dining in Lisle is Back

Just in time for warmer temperatures, the Village of Lisle is continuing its expanded outdoor dining program this year. Lisle’s COVID-19 Outdoor Eating and Drinking Relief Program increases options for restaurants and bars to operate outdoor seating options adjacent to their businesses.
The Program’s goal is to allow for greater social distancing and safety for bar and restaurant-goers and employees with guidance from public health experts and the Restore Illinois Plan. The Village is temporarily allowing businesses to expand existing patio space or establish new patio areas, potentially including parking lots, sidewalks, street parking spaces, to develop outdoor operating areas.
Please take the opportunity to visit the restaurants and bars throughout Lisle, enjoy a variety of delectable meal offerings alfresco, and show your support of our hospitality businesses!
