Holiday Tree Lighting
Date: Friday, December 6
Place: Bartlett Park
Start your holidays at the annual Tree Lighting sponsored by the Bartlett Chamber of Commerce with the Bartlet Park District and the Village.
5 to 6:30 p.m. - Visit Santa at the Log Cabin. Bring your own camera and take photos of your little ones with Santa!
7 p.m. - The Holiday Tree will be lit in Bartlett Park at North Avenue and Oak Avenue.
A new tree will be lit this year. Due to safety concerns, the large tree that has served the community for many years has been retired. The Village, Chamber of Commerce and Bartlett Park District purchased and planted the new tree several years ago in anticipation of this time, when the old tree would be too large to be decorated safely.
The 3/50 Project
Did you know that for every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures.
The Village of Bartlett supports the 3/50 project, which encourages Bartlett residents to shop and dine locally when possible in order to build a stronger, sounder local economy. (read more...)

With the holiday season quickly approaching, the Bartlett Police Department would like to offer residents some safety suggestions to deter thefts and other criminal activities. (see safety tips)

Cook County Veterans - Record your DD-214s
On the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month, the Armistice between the Allied Forces and Germany went into effect. This was to be the end of the "War to End All Wars;" in 1919, President Wilson declared this date to be Armistice Day. This later became what we now celebrate as Veterans Day.
As we honor those who served before us and serve us now, I want to urge all veterans to record their DD-214 military discharge records with the Cook County Recorder of Deeds-Veterans Service Office. This extremely valuable document is what is required to apply for your well-deserved benefits such as medical care, educational benefits, and VA loans for housing, among others.
In a time of need, wouldn’t you like the peace of mind that your family can access these valuable documents in a safe and secure fashion? It is nice to know they don’t have to hunt through desk drawers or find the keys to a safety deposit box. Letting them know, in advance, that our office has a copy can save them time and worry. All of this is provided to you for free for recordation and for $1.25 when you or a member of your family wishes to retrieve a certified copy of a DD-214 that you have recorded.
My family has a proud history of serving this nation. My father and husband have served, as well as my brother and sister, and my son presently serves this nation as a Captain the United States Army. Because of this, I take this facet of my role very seriously. All DD-214s are protected from public view, and are available only to the person named in the document, the named person’s dependents, the county veteran’s service officer, and representatives from the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans may record their DD-214s at our Downtown Office at 118 N. Clark or at any of the courthouses conveniently located in Cook County. These locations are in Bridgeview, Markham, Maywood, Rolling Meadows and Skokie (at this time, certified copies are only available at our Downtown Office) If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 312-603-5788.
I want to thank all our veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made in order to protect our freedoms at home, and spread the message of hope and peace throughout the world. I also want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Cook County Recorder of Deeds
