On Monday, May 21, 2018, the City of Loves Park honored all of the student artists and schools that have participated in the the Bus Bench Beautification program.  At the City Council meeting, each participating school was awarded a certificate of appreciation.  This was followed by a reception for all students and their parents, schools, teachers, Beautification Committee members, financial donors, City staff and elected officials that participated and supported this project from it’s inception.  We are extremely proud of all the students that have participated and hope that the participation contiues in this effort to beautify the City of Loves Park.  We would also like to thank Greenfire Restaurant for providing the excellent food and serving staff, and everyone that helped organize this event.  Participating schools include Boylan High School, Auburn High School, Harlem High School, Belvidere High School, St. Bridget School, Rock Cut Elementary School, Loves Park Elementary School, and Maple Elementary School.
