The 2016 Dinner was a Success!

Over 300 folks from around the county got together at this annual event to celebrate the good work of our Environmental Conservation heroes.  We enjoyed live music, great food, great company and the opportunity to support conservation, parks and trails with a 50/50 raffle and silent auction with lots of cool stuff-Fun was had by all!

Portage Park District celebrates 25 years this year--we've come a long way, thanks to lots of friends!
