The Washington Park District has rescheduled for Saturday, September 12th.
There will not be a morning gathering; rather everyone will work with pre-scheduled groups to identify an area that works best for them and have them go directly to that location.
Shirts, trash bags, and gloves will be available for pickup at the Washington Park District during the week of September 7th. Groups are asked to pre-register to determine a location and pick everything up in advance.
For any questions regarding this event or to register a group, please contact Matt Suellentrop at the Washington Park District at email@example.com or call 309-444-9413.

WTVP’s Create TV and World programming doubled in late July! Instead of one channel airing only half of the available daily programming (Create TV in the morning, World in the evening), each will have its own 24/7 home. That means twice the home improvement, gardening, cooking and travel shows of Create TV, and twice the news, documentaries, business, history, and in-depth reporting of World.
WTVP World is on digiMAX TV channel 248 and Create TV is on channel 249.
Play ball! MTCO digiMAX went live with the Chicago Cubs Marquee Sports Network on July 24th! Tune in to HD channel 560 or in standard definition on channel 15 for all your Cubs action.

9:00 p.m. – "The Osbournes Want To Believe" (TRAVEL)
Jack Osbourne is determined to make his parents, Ozzy and Sharon, full-fledged paranormal believers. Dim the lights and settle in for fun, scares and unfiltered humor in Travel Channel’s new series, The Osbournes Want To Believe. They might be known as the first family of darkness, but when it comes to the paranormal, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne, are borderline skeptics. Determined to turn them fully to the other side, Jack reunites with Ozzy and Sharon to share the craziest, most jaw-dropping videos of supernatural activity ever caught on camera. But the question still remains if the Prince and Princess of Darkness will see the light when it comes to the paranormal, or if they think it’s just another ride on the crazy train.
Each comedic half-hour self-contained episode will highlight a celebrity and countdown the 10 most unique, unbelievable and surprising facts you don’t know about that person. From Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez and Tiffany Haddish, to Will Smith, Lady Gaga, Keanu Reeves and more, the series will uncover all the hysterical, outrageous, only-in-Hollywood scoop that prove stars really are just like us.
