We recently received news from PDRMA (Park District Risk Management Agency) that our score on our Loss Control Review is 99.57 on a 100 point scale, a rating of "Excellence Level A!" The review is a comprehensive risk management assessment and education tool designed to measure the safety practices of park districts and special recreation agencies.

Kando Bakery granola bars & LIFE
Have you tried the Kando Bakery's gourmet granola bars or gluten-free bars yet? NISRA's LIFE program participants help package these delicious bars, which are available at a few local outlets and through their web site, www.kandobakery.com. Several months ago Channel 2 newsman Harry Porterfield visited NISRA’s LIFE program to learn about the partnership between Kando Bakery and LIFE.
