Thank all of you for coming out to speak or show support at the Public Hearing against the demolition of Old St. Patrick's Grade School This is only the beginning but we were heard

Please email your village officials and let them know how you feel about losing this landmark. It appears that if some one wants to get rid of a historic building in town they just let it rot until they declare it unrepairable. Let them know how you feel about this. All building should be kept up to minimal building code standards so this doesn't happen.

We are pleased to announce that on Sunday, September 6, at 2pm. the traditional Keepataw Parade will be held. The effort of "Project Lemont" and the citizens of Lemont helped to bring back this tradition and we are grateful to all who helped and look forward to this special part of our history again in our lives.
