“The history of Lyons is embedded in the history of the entire Chicagoland and Southwest region,” said Mayor Christopher Getty.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished and built here in the village and we’re proud of our family oriented environment. We have a strong business community and a heritage that is second to none.”

Getty noted that the picnic is a part of a series of events that Lyons has been showcasing this year which marks the 125th year since the incorporation of the village in 1888.

“We also have an inaugural Dinner Dance that will be held in the evening on Friday November 15 at Village Hall to commemorate the 125th year milestone of the Village of Lyons,” Getty said.

“I think every resident of Lyons should be proud of what we have accomplished in Lyons and participate to make it an even stronger community.”
