We hold programs 5-6 times a year on Park Forest and regional history, as well as
occasional speakers on topics of general historical interest
or on preserving family photographs and resources. See our newsletter, The Spirit.
Each spring we hold the Park Forest Hall of Fame Induction ceremony,
recognizing people nominated by the public for consistent, beneficial
service to the community over a long span of time. Nomination forms,
sent to members each fall and available on our website,
are accepted between October 1 and December 15 each year.
Volunteers are available to give presentations to schools
or groups, including talks for scouts working on local history.
We welcome volunteers to work as docents, or guides during regular
museum hours, and also to host tours by appointment.
See our lists of volunteer opportunities under the 1950s Museum and Archive categories.
The Archive Office is now open at 227 Monee Road.
There are volunteer opportunities to meet your talents and time availability.
