VOTE FOR THE RESILIENCY INSTITUTE "COMMUNITY TREE"
Take the family for a visit to Cantigny Park in Wheaton for a Free Tour of McCormick House. View the seven "Community Trees" on Display and VOTE for your favorite (Hint: The Resiliency Institute). The tree with the most votes receives $2,500 from the McCormick Foundation. You can vote as many times as you want. Kids can vote, too!
The Resiliency Institute was one of seven organizations honored by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation with a $2,500 grant and an invitation to decorate a "Community Tree". The area charities were invited to participate because their missions involve issues or causes that were important to Robert McCormick during his career and life at Cantigny. The "Community Trees" will be on display at the McCormick House November 17th through December 30th.
The trees creatively decorated by these seven organizations will be positioned throughout McCormick House. For the eighth consecutive year, the Westmont design center of Phillip’s Flowers & Gifts is decorating the 18-foot-tall tree in Freedom Hall, Colonel McCormick’s historic library.
McCormick House hours in November and December are 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday- Sunday, with visits by free guided tour. The museum is closed on Mondays and during the holidays will close November 23-24 and December 24-25.
Parking at Cantigny is $5 per vehicle (free for members). More information, including park hours, directions and a calendar of upcoming events is online at Cantigny.org.
