Chamber honors Park District with Good Works Award

Elmhurst Park District was honored to receive the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s 2021 Good Works Award, which was presented during the Chamber’s 73rd annual Golf Outing, held at Sugar Creek Golf Course on Thursday, September 23.

The Good Works Award is presented each year at the Golf Outing and honors the memory of the late Chamber President A.J. “Toche” Terrones. He led the Chamber for almost ten years until his death the night before the 1999 Golf Outing.

The award was presented to recognize the Park District “for contributions to the betterment of the Elmhurst community for more than 100 years, for its partnerships with local businesses and non-for-profit organizations, for its collaboration with other governmental bodies and nearly a half century of active and involved membership of the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce and industry including organizational support of the Chamber Golf Outing hosted at Sugar Creek Golf Course for the last ten years.”

Elmhurst Park District thanks the Chamber for this recognition and continues to work on ways to partner with community organizations in pursuit of fulfilling its mission of enriching lives while having fun.
