Passing of Village Official

We lost a great person in our village this week. Village Trustee Tom Sanders passed on July 1. Tom was a lifelong resident and servant of our community.

He started his service as Village Trustee in 1992 and became Village President in 2005 until his appointment to Chief of Police in 2007. Tom served on various committees throughout his tenure: Building & Zoning, Roads, Public Works, Finance, Architectural Review and Personal Committee. His contributions and vision of our community helped it to grow to the wonderful community we have today.

As Chief of Police, Tom was an honorable man who always put the best interests of his officers ahead of his own needs and served as a mentor for many officers in his career. He was a hands-on Chief, putting in long hours working beside his officers and leading by example.

Tom retired in 2021 and once again became a public servant as Village Trustee. His knowledge of the village will never be duplicated.

Tom was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather who will be greatly missed by his family and community. Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Mary and family. The village has lowered all flags to half-staff in honor of our hero Tom Sanders until his memorial service has concluded.

View Service information here. Friday’s funeral procession will be as follows; from Thompson Funeral Home, south on Wilmot Road to Main Street, west on Main Street to Blivin Street, south on Blivin Street, through the Village Hall parking lot, north on Meyer Road, west on Route 12, south on Winn Road ending at the Intermatic lot. Please see map attached.

New Spring Grove Park Sign

In 1941, St. Peter’s Church received ten acres of land adjoining the church’s property to the north. The property was transformed into a baseball diamond with lights, a viewing stand and a playground. In 1984, the village purchased 10 acres between this property and Horse Fair Park to develop it into Spring Grove Park. A road, parking and more playing fields were added.

In 1986, the village signed a lease with St. Peter’s for the use of their baseball field for the community and agreed to maintain them. Throughout the years, many fun memories of watching and playing ball have been made there.

In recognition of the church’s continuing contribution to the community at Spring Grove Park, a new entry sign to the park was designed and now reads “St. Peter’s Church Field at Spring Grove Park”. I would like to thank Father Joe and the St. Peter’s Church congregation for their continued support of our community.
