Stories About Lombard

Recently, several of our high school students were badly burned in a bonfire accident. The people of Lombard have banned together to help out in this time of need, for people most of us don’t even know. Red ribbons adorn many of our trees in support and GoFundMe pages have been set up to help the families, in addition to car washes and other fundraising efforts. I have never been more proud to be a part of such a wonderful and caring community.
