We are sad to see this great man leave! Steve Liechty has been a huge part in the success of the Evanston Parks and Recreation District. Steve came to the Recreation District in 1980 and hasn't stopped creating new ways to keep the next generations healthy. He will be deeply missed, not only for his positive attitude but also for his knowledge of this work. Congratulations on your retirement!! Go have some fun!
