Return slide to Village Green

On March 8, at 1:45 p.m., it was very disappointing to see an older, dark green Chevy pickup truck drive down Dale Street in Lemont with a green, plastic children’s slide in the back.

It turned out to be the slide that many small children have enjoyed when visiting the Village Green, especially those too small to negotiate a ladder. It’s been on that hillside for more than six years, 10 feet away from the road, not standing alongside a trash can or other indication that it might be riffraff, so it seems unlikely that someone would take it for junk.

The Village Green is a community gathering space, maintained by volunteers from Lemont, and in 15 years we have never had anything stolen. Please return our green slide to the Village Green in Lemont. Thank you.
