"It is important to recognize those who give so much of their time, resources and talents to making the Illinois park, recreation and conservation system one of the best in the nation," said Peter Murphy, president and chief executive officer of the IAPD.

The Illinois State Historical Society recognized the St. Charles Park District for its milestone celebration serving the Fox Valley area for 100 years. The historical society hosted its 27th annual awards banquet recognizing 40 Illinois businesses into the elite club on Sept. 24 in Springfield.

"The society's Centennial Awards program began in 1984 as a way to identify and recognize Illinois corporations that were founded here and continue to operate in the Prairie State," said William Furry, ISHS executive director. "To date, Illinois has more than 1,300 centennial businesses."
