Up Coming Happenings 


We believe true community isn't just existing together. It's people interacting with each other, helping one another, working together, and playing together. That's what we want for our community in Boxwood, and that's why we host these community events.

The Food Pantry meets every Saturday at one of The Bridge Community Church locations. 

The 1st and 3rd Saturdays we are at The Bridge's Des Plaines location at 946 E Thacker St. Des Plaines.

On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays we are at The Bridges Randhurst location at 302 E Euclid Ave Prospect Hts

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. and arrive by 10:45.  Bring some shopping bags to fill with great food.  

Tuesday Nights Boys Club gets together for Fun Games and a message that reminds us GOD has The Best Plan for your life.

We're getting ready to begin the School Year for the  2023-2024 Boys Club Year!

The Boxwood Bash

The Boxwood Bash began the Summer of 1991 to build a better relationship between the Community, the Village and the Services available to them.  We are still having a great time.  

Games, prizes, music and fun all provided by the Library, churches like The Bridge and St Paul Lutheran, with the Police, Fire Depart and many more groups.  This year everyone had a great time.  We can't wait until the 2nd Saturday of August 2023 for our next Boxwood Summer Bash!
