The Give Where You Live - Deerfield event scheduled for Monday, November 12 has been canceled. Previously, this all-ages event has welcomed families and children who were off school for the day, but changes in school holiday schedules conflict with this year's Day of Service.
Please disregard the article in the Village's D-Tales newsletter and any other promotions you may come across.
In lieu of the event, we welcome everyone to join the Deerfield American Legion Post 738 and Mayor Harriet Rosenthal to honor our veterans with a Veterans Day Service. The service is taking place on Sunday, November 11 at 11 a.m. It will be located at the Veterans' Memorial at the intersection of Jewett Park and Park Avenue.
