June 2023 Newsletter
May was a busy month for We Are Oglesby officers and community volunteers.
On Saturday, May 20th, Tag Day raised $1,524.91! Thank you to all who donated and volunteered. Because of your generosity, we will be able to bring more great community events and improvements to Oglesby!
On Sunday, May 21st, our officers along with community volunteers spent the day cleaning the memorials and power washing the sidewalks at Memorial Park. We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful park.
We are looking forward to the Summer Fun Fest Kick-off Party this Saturday, June 10th, 5:00pm, at the Oglesby Pool. We will have a Ducky Derby along with a cook-out and cake walk! Enjoy an evening of family fun to kick-off the week of Summer Fun Fest.
