Clyde Park District Receives $25K Grant

The Larry Dominick Foundation has made a generous donation of $25,000 to the Clyde Park District, to be used to support sports and recreation programs for youth in Cicero and neighboring communities.

“We are so proud of the youth programs that we have built up over the years,” said Anthony Martinucci, executive director of the Clyde Park District. “This donation helps to ensure that we can continue to provide top-quality, affordable programs to boys and girls in Cicero.”

President Dominick said he was proud of the work that the Clyde Park District has done to provide a wide range of quality programs and services to residents in the Clyde Park District, especially to Cicero’s youth, families and seniors.

“Keeping our children involved in sports and after-school-programing is an important step in helping them to strengthen their character and keep them focused on achieving their career goals,” Dominick said.

“We are proud of the many quality programs children and families will find at Cicero’s Parks and the work at Clyde Park District is making a difference.”

The District’s sports and recreation programs provide fun, safe and healthy activities for thousands of children each year. This fall, 1,200 boys and girls are participating in the Park District’s fall soccer program. Other Park District programs for youth include basketball, dance lessons, swimming lessons, and summer day camps.

Clyde Park District operates 11 playgrounds, five community centers, two full-size swimming pools, and three wading pools at sites throughout Cicero.
