George Weinert Fishing Derby

Long time Park Board Commissioner, George Weinert served on the Grayslake Park District from 1997-2007 and then again from 2008 to the time of his passing, dedicating 17 years of service to his community. George is remembered as a strong, dedicated leader who loved the park district. In the Fall of 2015 the Grayslake Park Districted hosted the 1st Annual George Weinert Fishing Derby to honor George. Thanks to the Weinert Family (Karen, Christine, Mike, Sophia, Joelle, Andrew, Michelle, Billy and Robyn) allowing us each year to keep his memory in our hearts and to celebrate such a wonder man!
