I strongly believe team sports offered by the Park District provide our children a great learning experience. Volunteering for the Park District was a way to simply spend quality time with my children participating in activities we could enjoy together. To my surprise I have received so much more in return. Being able to interact with the different families across Carol Stream, through the various sports teams I have coached, has been a source of great enjoyment for me and my family. - Bill Bonnema

Congratulations to Bill Bonnema (pictured on the top left with his grade 5-6 basketball team), recently named the Carol Stream Citizen of the Year for 2009.

Bill has dedicated hundreds of hours of service to the Park District through the youth sports programs. He has proven his leadership as a member of our basketball and baseball planning committee, a baseball league coordinator, and as a coach and manager for six different teams this year. Bill is an enthusiastic volunteer who is always willing to share ideas to improve the Park District programs not only for his family, but for all of the children in our sports programs. His assistance has helped the recreation staff develop youth sports programs that evaluate, teach and inspire players.

I strongly believe team sports offered by the Park District provide our children a great learning experience. Volunteering for the Park District was a way to simply spend quality time with my children participating in activities we could enjoy together. To my surprise I have received so much more in return. Being able to interact with the different families across Carol Stream, through the various sports teams I have coached, has been a source of great enjoyment for me and my family. - Bill Bonnema

Congratulations to Bill Bonnema (pictured on the top left with his grade 5-6 basketball team), recently named the Carol Stream Citizen of the Year for 2009.

Bill has dedicated hundreds of hours of service to the Park District through the youth sports programs. He has proven his leadership as a member of our basketball and baseball planning committee, a baseball league coordinator, and as a coach and manager for six different teams this year. Bill is an enthusiastic volunteer who is always willing to share ideas to improve the Park District programs not only for his family, but for all of the children in our sports programs. His assistance has helped the recreation staff develop youth sports programs that evaluate, teach and inspire players.
