2023 Montrew Dunham Award Ceremony

Lincoln Center
935 Maple Avenue Downers Grove
1:00 pm — 3:00 pm

Bruce Swanson has been named the 2023 Montrew Dunham Award recipient by the Downers Grove Historical Society.

“Holey” and “holy” are two words easily associated with Downers resident Bruce Swanson. He is an avid golfer who frequently plays nine holes or more, and he is known for his charitable works. As a result, the Downers Grove Historical Society (DGHS) is naming Swanson the recipient of its 2023 Montrew Dunham Award. This award honors those whose significant service and contributions to the Village of Downers Grove have earned them a place in its history.

He will be honored on October 7th at Lincoln Center (935 Maple Avenue, Downers Grove, IL) at 1 pm;  the public is invited. Admission is free, but pre-registration is requested; more details will be posted on the DGHS website in September. Many know him through his volunteer activities, and many more enjoyed having him as a  5th or 6th grade teacher during his 30+ years with Downers Grove District 58.   If you have words of appreciation or anecdotes you would like to share, please email the Downer Grove Historical Society at  [email protected].   And please let us know if you’ll be there.
