Just a reminder that the Tremont City Yard Waste Pile is for grass, brush and branches only. The waste pile is located west of town on Franklin Rd. Items NOT acceptable for the waste pile include (but are not limited to) furniture, plastics, metals, etc.

The Village is working to implement a new monitoring technique for those who abuse this provision.

Summer season is upon us. The pool is filled and we had hoped it would be ready for early opening this year. In March, we repaired numerous tears in our eight-year-old pool liner; however, upon filling the pool, significant water loss was detected. Under the advisement of a leak detection expert, a few new repairable tears were identified. The park district is committed to opening the community pool as early as possible; however, the leaks must be repaired. We are hopeful that dry weather will allow us to make the necessary repairs by early next week (June 4th) and open the first weekend of June. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Rising Stars show choir received First Place at Music In The Parks hosted by Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida

Central Illinois-May 2016 Central Illinois’ newest show choir, Nitsch Theatre Arts Rising Stars, competed in the Music in the Parks Music Festival and Competition in Orlando Florida at Universal Studios on May 7th. The show choir, consisting of 10 Central Illinois students from Eureka, Mackinaw, Tremont and Pekin, is directed by Kelleen Nitsch and Taylor Elizabeth.

The students sang four numbers at the competition; Magic To Do from Pippin, Naughty & Revolting Children from Matilda and I Won’t Grow Up from Peter Pan. They received a first place trophy and ranking of “Excellent” that evening at an awards ceremony at Universal Studios’ City Walk.

The students who competed rehearsed their parts independently and practiced as a group on the weekends for the past 4 months. They also performed at many Central Illinois events including First Friday in Peoria and Pekin’s Kid Fest. Nitsch couldn’t be prouder of their most recent accomplishment in Florida.

Nitsch began the nonprofit theatre company in March 2015. Nitsch Theatre Arts was a dream that became a reality the way most grassroots organizations do…friends chatting around a dinner table. A group with a passion and commitment to create a powerful organization that will fulfill the mission of NTA to bring unique theatre arts performances, showcase new works and partner with schools and other organizations to get arts opportunities back into the foundation of our communities. A group that believe we should all “Live the ARTS!”

“The thing that impresses me the most, is that these kids joined this group because they want music and the arts in their lives every day,” Nitsch said. “I think that is amazing.”
