Deerfield Park District and Deerfield Park Foundation do their best to provide appropriate recognition for Donors, Sponsors and other Supporters. Sometimes recognition comes in the form of a listing in an event program, newsletter or brochure; or on a poster or sign; sometimes on a name plate or plaque; but always with our heart-felt appreciation for the support given.
