Heritage Hall Construction Update

Heritage Hall Construction Update

Our Heritage Hall Committee has been working hard on getting our drawings and permits in order for the work on the bathroom and catering kitchen in addition to required exits and ramps. The first two bids came back double our budgeted amount.  We will continue to look for other bids daisy-raffle-ticketand will continue fundraising.

Please help us by buying a Daisy Cash Raffle Ticket. Cash prizes and your odds are better than the lottery! Ways to buy, stop by shops in CH and ask for a raffle ticket, come by our table at Fall Family Fest on Sept 17th or contact us at for a ticket!

Heritage Hall Sewer Line Heritage Hall sign








This picture of a pipe sticking out of the ground may not look like much to you, but it does to us! This pipe is our recent sewer line hook up to Heritage Hall, which will enable us to start work on the inside bathroom. A small but important step forward in our renovation.

Tonight, Wednesday, July 27th we will be at the Dancin in the Streets concert in Clarendon Hills. Come by our table for give aways and to purchase a Daisy Cash Raffle ticket for $10 dollars each. Your odds will be better than the lottery to win! We will also have old photo reproductions for sale of Clarendon Hills! Proceeds to help us with our Heritage Hall renovation.

Hope to see you there!

Steve Beeaker

Christmas Walk 2015


Steve Beeaker, Treasurer of the Clarendon Hills Historical Society, passed away at age 89 on May 20, 2016. He was born April 9, 1927. May he rest in peace.


Steve was a WWII veteran of the U.S. Navy. He and his charming wife Arlene lived in the village since 1966. They have two children and four grandchildren.  Steve worked for Nicor Gas in their Accounting Dept. Besides keeping a sharp eye on the books, Steve enjoyed collecting and listening to Big Band and Jazz music.


Steve was always upbeat and full of positive energy. He brought a lot to our organization, his knowledge of music and Big Bands was extensive and we all loved talking to him about this music.  He offered to burn CD’s for anyone who expressed an interest in a particular artist. Besides his duties as treasurer, he was always available to volunteer. He will be missed.
