The Oak Lawn Park District’s Ice Arena will hold its 9th Annual Treats for Troops collection throughout the month of October and into November.

               Participants of the Ice Arena’s Rising Stars Skating School will decorate treat bags and collect Halloween candy to be sent to the troops.

               The public is also encouraged to participate by dropping off bags of candy to the Ice Arena, 9320 S. Kenton Ave, by Saturday, November 9th.

               An opportunity to decorate treat bags and collect for the troops will also be available at

the Park District’s Spookview event at the Oak View Center, 4625 W. 110th St., on Saturday, October 26th, from 2:00-5:00pm.

               All candy collected will be sent to the Park District’s Veterans Care Package Coordinator, Miss Jacky Connelly, who has been collecting and packaging goodies for distribution to the troops for over 10 years.  

               Last year over 800 pounds of treats were collected.

                              For more information on donating to the troops, please contact 708-857-5173.
