Communicating important information and scheduling changes for today’s on-the-go parents is critical for any park district. Lemont Park District is no stranger to this situation. When the weather doesn’t cooperate with a busy game-day schedule and they need to connect with dozens or even hundreds of parents quickly, they turn to CloseBy® Text Marketing.

CloseBy® Text’s easy-to-use text from phone feature allows park district staff to send a message directly to a user group in seconds without needing a computer. This gives Carrie Dellamo and her team an affordable, flexible and instant communication channel to connect with Lemont Park District parents and teams and has made CloseBy® Text Marketing a winner.

Read below what Lemont Park District has to say about their experience with CloseBy® Text:

“We LOVE the CloseBy® Text Marketing Program! The text program helps us to notify our members and guests at a moment’s notice of any changes in schedules, facility closures or special event reminders. This program has helped us better communicate with our community, especially when it comes to important last-minute information. Quite a few members and guests have subscribed to our text messaging and are thankful for the immediate notifications. We have received very positive feedback regarding our text program because it is so user-friendly. We have expanded our text messaging to include other areas of our business due to its ease of use and the fact that it can be done from anywhere, at any time, using your phone.”
