League Observers



Find out about your village schools, library or other board whose work appeals to you. Learn about the issues that board is dealing with in its meetings and get that information to our League. Job requires an evening or two a month plus a brief monthly summary of that board's major activities. An opportunity to know more about where we live! Observers are needed for the following village boards:

Village Board of Trustees: Winnetka, Northfield, Kenilworth

Schools: Winnetka District #36; Northfield District #29, Avoca District #37; Kenilworth District #38

Library: Winnetka-Northfield; Kenilworth

Parks: Winnetka, Northfield, Kenilworth Park Districts
