COMMUNITY CENTER TEMPORARY CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT
DECEMBER 17, 2020

Since the COVID-19 health crisis began in March of 2020, the South Holland Community Center has revised many of its programs and operations in order to keep its employees and patrons safe, while still offering opportunities to stay active. However, the capacity limits of the Governor’s executive order, combined with a sense of caution within the community to engage in recreational programming, has caused Community Center staff to reevaluate its operations.

As a result, the South Holland Community Center will temporarily suspend all operations—with the exception of the Pre-School—at 9pm on Wednesday, December 30.

The reopening date will be based on a combination of three factors: the lifting of the Governor’s executive order; the widespread availability of the COVID-19 vaccine; and the comfort level of our residents to once again engage in recreational programming.

The Community Center staff is grateful to its members and customers who have continually supported the mission of providing a welcoming environment where community members gather, play, and recreate. We’ll see you soon!

Tree of Life

Tree of Life
In 2000, the Community Center Endowment Committee was originally established to allow residents and businesses the opportunity to be a part of the village’s recreational crown jewel. Initial participation helped to underwrite part of the cost of individual rooms in the Community Center.

Today, the lobby of the Community Center showcases the beautiful 12’x12′ “Tree of Life.” This display is a visual representation of the generosity and commitment to the relentless pursuit of improvement desired by South Holland’s residents and businesses.

The endowment fund continues to seek new supporters. Donation levels range from $300 to $50,000 and up:

  • Leaf – $300 to $999
  • Acorn – $1,000 to $9,999
  • Small Stone – $10,000 to $19,999
  • Medium Stone – $20,000 to $29,999
  • Large Stone – $30,000 to $49,999
  • Engraved Plate – $50,000 and up
