Byron Forest Preserve, Bryon Rotary works on sled shed project

Volunteers work on construction parts of the shed that will be used to house sleds for public use at Byron Forest Preserve.

BYRON — Byron Rotary Club seeks donations of new and lightly used snow sleds and snow saucers, which will be stored for public at the Byron Forest Preserve District’s sledding hill.

The sleds can be dropped off at Byron Public Library, 100 S. Washington St. or at the Dickerson Nieman-Floski Law Office Building at 220 W. Third St.

The sleds are being stored at a shed that is being constructed with $2,000 worth of building materials provided by Rotary fundraisers and a Rotary Foundation grant. Children and families will be allowed to borrow sleds and saucers at no cost.

The shed is being designed and constructed by forest preserve volunteers. It is designed to be portable for off-season storage.
