Village Named Outstanding Employer
Congratulations to the Village of Franklin Park for being named Outstanding Employer of the Year by Leyden High School. This award was given to recognize the Village for their dedication and service to the Leyden's Cooperative Education Program. The Village, along with several other area businesses, partner with Leyden to provide job opportunities for seniors through their Cooperative Education Program. The Village has had students working in the Building and Public Works Department and the Clerk’s Office. Students learn about specific responsibilities and services provided by the Village and gain valuable hands-on experience to help them in their future careers.
Let's Move This Winter
Don’t let the cold winter weather get you down. You can still be active during the winter season. Bundle up and get out for a brisk walk. Find a trail to enjoy the winter scenery or simply go for a walk through our neighborhoods. Either way, it will get your heart pumping and the fresh air will do you good! If it’s too cold for you outside, then turn up the music indoors and dance the day away. It’s a fun way to work off extra calories. Head into the kitchen to try out a healthy recipe for your family. After dinner, take the family to our Community Center or Park District facility to shoot hoops. It’s a great way to meet new friends too!
