60th Anniversary Resident Recognitions

In celebration of the Village's 60th Anniversary, we want to recognize those residents who have been here just as long - or longer! Please complete this form (link) to nominate yourself, your friends, family or neighbors. Residents will be recognized by the Village at a future date in 2021. Please contact 60thAnniversary@channahon.org with any questions.

Resident Story Submissions

Every town has its history - the factual information that can be found with a quick search or trip to the library. This time, we want to hear Channahon's history through your point of view! We're collecting anecdotal stories about Channahon and what has happened since our incorporation in 1961 to share with all of our residents, old and new, to enjoy and reflect on. 

If you have stories about Channahon that you'd like to share, please email 60thAnniversary@channahon.org.. 

Family Scavenger Hunt

Kicking off on Saturday, May 15, 2021, our Family Scavenger Hunt will have residents getting out, exploring and enjoying many of the natural amenities that Channahon has to offer.

  • Community Park

  • Central Park
  • Village Hall
  • Memorial Tree Walk
  • Arroyo Trails
