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 2024 for our next Boxwood Summer Bash!


November 10th was a great night and  FUNdraiser.  A Celebration of the great things GOD is doing on Boxwood Drive in Mt Prospect.  We heard about our wonderful Volunteers and Community Partners as well as all the amazing things we've done together this past year.

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.
