Needlers (CB)

This program is designed for the person who loves to knit or crochet and would love to use this fun skill to donate your finished product to people in need. Our donations go to Loyola’s Neonatal Department, Jesse Brown Hospital in Chicago and the Veterans.

At our meetings we will discuss what the need is, such as infant knit caps, booties, baby quilts, blankets and lap robes. The following meetings will be used to work on projects. Coffee and great conversation will be present each week, so join us for a great cause!

Proksa Park Garden Club

The Proksa Park Garden Club is sponsored and funded by the Berwyn Park District.

The club meets in the Proksa Park Multi-Purpose Room at 3001 S. Wisconsin Ave at 6:30pm on the third Monday of each month.  Occasional special functions are held elsewhere and are posted on the Garden Club section of the Park District Website.

Club members are encouraged to volunteer to help design, create and maintain 10 gardens in the park.  These include a Butterfly Garden, a Native Plant Garden, a Children's Garden, and other general plantings.


We are always looking for volunteers to help plant, weed, and harvest the plots we tend in Proksa Park!

If you would like to help out, contact Cody Brown at 708.956.7870 or  He will pass along your information to a club member and help get you started. Once a member, you can work on the plot of your choice anytime the park is open.
