Annual Event Honors Franklin Park Mayor Barrett Pedersen

The 7th annual Ladybug Bash was held on October 24th at the Ravenswood Event Center. The event’s sponsors, attendees, auction donors, and volunteers helped raise $15,000 to strengthen our position as a Midwest leader on pesticide issues affecting human health and the environment.

Mayor Barrett Pedersen of Franklin Park was the guest of honor, and received the Sustainability Leadership Award for his commitment to municipal pesticide reduction.
