The Old School Park, established in 2002, has been a recreational haven for several years.  The park is in crucial need of updated playground equipment so children can continue to have safe equipment on which to play.

The Old School Park Committee has been raising money for years through projects like the Sibley Fourth of July funnel cake sales and community dinners.  We are currently planning more fundraising projects, but we are kindly asking for your monetary support to help us achieve our goal of raising $15,000.

There are three ways that you can help donate:

(1) Checks can be made out to the Village of Melvin (Old School Park in the memo) and mailed to the Village at P O Box 142, Melvin, IL 60952.

(2) If needed, a committee member will gladly come to your Melvin residence to pick up your tax-deductible cash or check donation, or

(3) You can just click on the following: https://www.epayillinois.com/Epay/Pay/147967 and make a donation to the park.

We thank you in advance for your support!  Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used to accomplish our goal of making the Old School Park an enjoyable place for your children and families for years to come.
