Another Grayslake Giving Trees display has come to an end. Our sincere thanks to the 16 non-profit and community organizations who participated in our show. More than 1,200 visitors had the chance to see their tree this year, including a record-breaking crowd on opening night. Our heartfelt thanks to all who participated this year.
On January 4, we announced the winners of this year’s display. Congratulations to Relay for Life, which received the most votes to win the People’s Choice Award. In addition, we worked with members of the Grayslake Arts Alliance to recognize additional trees. Our sincere congratulations to the Grayslake Historical Society which received an Honorable Mention, the Grayslake Farmers Market for winning the Spirit Award, Mother’s Trust for receiving the Best Illustration of Mission Award and the Grayslake Greenery Club who received awards for Most Creative and Best of Show.
All of us at the museum appreciate the hard work of volunteers and staff who participated in this beloved annual event. Our community organizations do a great deal to make Grayslake a wonderful place to work, live and play. Thank you and best wishes for a prosperous 2017.
