Unfortunately with COVID-19 we will not schedule any village sponsored events for 2021. As soon as we can resume our normal way of getting together we will. Stay safe.
Easter Egg Hunt
Around Easter, the Village holds an Egg Hunt at no cost to participants. The Village has cancelled the 2021 Easter Egg Hunt.
Village Wide Garage Sales
The Village will not be sponsoring a Village Wide Garage Sale in 2021. Residents may choose to host a Garage Sale at any time, social distancing is advised.
The Village Wide Clean Up for 2021 will take place on May 17, 2021. Safety guidelines are as follows: all items must be in either a bag, box carton or some type of container. If the pickers go through your items and scatter them across your yard or ditch it is your responsibility to pick up these items and place them back in a container for our crew to remove them. If you have any mattresses or box springs, the Village will pick up these items as long as they are in a Village approved bag. The Village sells these bags for $10.00 each. One bag per item. Public Works will not pick up household garbage, feces, electronics, appliances, paints, tires, and landscape waste just to name a few. A complete list is at the office of unacceptable items. If there are items left that we can not pick up it will be the residents responsibility to dispose of the items. Please read your Village Bulletin or call the village office for rules and information at 217-529-3352. With that being said, we do offer a dump truck that can be utilized with departing with your lost treasures although this comes at a cost, we will have to bill you for the truck rental of $25.00 and the costs of dumping. Contact the Public Works department to schedule the truck to be delivered to you 217-529-8576.

The Village Picnic was cancelled for 2020 and no word on a scheduled event for 2021.
National Night Out (NNO) & Cops N Bobbers

Village Neighborhood Watch
The Village Neighborhood Watch gets together once a quarter. Unfortunately due to COVID we have not had a neighborhood watch since 2019. Once it is safe to get together again, we will put the word out for anyone who would like to join. Guest Speakers, information on local happenings and getting to know your neighbors are a big part of each meeting.
At Halloween time, we have a 'scariest home' contest.
For Christmas, there is a "Griswold" contest.
Both events have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
Veterans Day Banquet
Veterans Day is a day to thank our Veterans for their sacrifices. Southern View sponsors a reception for our local Veterans to get together and swap stories. We have hosted breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners in celebration of our local veterans.
