In addition to hosting our own events, CORE of McLean collaborates with other community groups by participating in their events. Here are some of our most recent activities!

2023 Independence Day Celebration

In 2023, CORE participated in the Mt. Hope–Funks Grove Park District’s Independence Day Celebration by sponsoring an ax throwing booth. Adults had fun testing their aim and ability, and we raised funds for our community projects.

Christmas in the Village

In 2021, CORE organized caroling and tree lighting on the Village Square in celebration of Christmas. In 2022, we collaborated with the Mt. Hope Township Community Hall to organize the Christmas in the Village, providing tree lighting, caroling, and s’mores. In 2023, CORE provided s’mores and helped arrange caroling by members of the Olympia High School choir and madrigals and a performance by the Ebenezer Church chimes choir for the enjoyment of the community. This event has been held each year on the Sunday following Thanksgiving.
