Practice the 3 Ws this holiday season
On behalf of Niles Township partners, including the Township, Villages, School Districts, Libraries and Park Districts, we remind you that it’s more important than ever to practice the 3 Ws:

Wear your mask.

Wash your hands.

Watch your distance.

These are the best ways to protect yourself and each other and to get our businesses and schools operating again at full speed as soon as possible. Please follow safety guidelines from The Illinois Department of Health.

This dangerous pandemic will take no break during the holiday season so make your gift this year a commitment to staying safe and helping ensure the same for your neighbors.

Better days are ahead, we promise; please take care of yourself and each other until they arrive.

Thanks to the district's EcoRestorers!
Genevieve Nano, of the district's park services division, began holding EcoRestoration Workdays this past spring. Now she would like to extend a huge thanks to the program's volunteers for all of their help working in the pollinator and native plant areas of the Skokie Park District!

We wish all of the district's volunteers –– and all patrons and staff of the Skokie Park District –– a healthy and safe Thanksgiving weekend!
