[ARCHIVED] SAVE THE DATE - Westmont 100th Anniversary Celebration Planned for Nov. 10

Westmont Ann Celebration

Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: September 3, 2021

On November 10, 2021, the Village of Westmont will celebrate its 100th Anniversary of Incorporation as a municipality in the State of Illinois at the Westmont Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy Street.

“We’ve been organizing a number of events and activities over the past several years, but our plans were greatly impacted by the pandemic,” said Mayor Ron Gunter, who is the chair of the 100th Anniversary Committee.  “At this time, we are moving forward with a 100th anniversary event at Village Hall.  The entire community is invited and we hope everyone will join us.”

There are several special activities including the unveiling of the Future of Westmont mural by artist Fanny Moy, 100th Anniversary Trivia Contest, pictures with 100th Anniversary Mascot Garrett, the debut of the 100th Anniversary History Video, and the dedication of the new James Addington Plaza near the train station.  There will be several commemorative keepsakes including 100th Anniversary Beanie Babies, anniversary commemorative ceramic plates, and special anniversary coins that will be given away as contest and raffle prizes.

The event will also include the presentation of the 100th Anniversary Westmont Legacy Awards, which will include a listing of businesses that served Westmont for 50 or more years.  The Legacy Awards will also include a special presentation to specific families in which generations of the same family served the community for multiple decades.

“The highlight of the evening will be the creation of a 100th Anniversary Time Capsule in which we will be asking various community organizations and public agencies to provide artifacts that will then be buried for 100 years,” said Gunter.

The final anniversary event of the year will be on Saturday, December 4 when the annual Holly Days Parade will incorporate a 100th Anniversary theme.  More events details will be published closer to the event date.
