Sue Bertram steps down from park board after 23 years of service

Sue Bertram of Flossmoor, a member of the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District
board of trustees for 23 years, said good-bye at the Jan. 19 park board meeting.

She was first elected to the board in May 1993. She served two consecutive six-year

and re-elected in 2013. She announced her retirement in November.

The board will appoint her replacement in February from four finalists.

Bertram’s name appears on numerous dedication plaques. During her tenure, the H-
F Park Board built its administrative building, two buildings at Irons Oaks and the
H-F Racquet Club, developed Patriots and Millennium Parks, a sports complex at
James Hart Junior High in Homewood and purchased the former Cherry Hills Golf
Course developing it as Coyote Run Golf Course.

In honor of her years of service, the park board will plant a magnolia tree in
Millennium Park.
