In 2020, many of the community events that are usually hosted at Whitney Commons were canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns. However, many smaller, private events still took place with appropriate social distancing.

Spirit of Sheridan Community Concert

A concert in celebration of the Spirit of Sheridan was held at Whitney Commons park on July 2, 2020. The concert was free and open to the public. The event featured a range of music from country and Americana to jazz and fusion featuring Ebenezer Eferobor and Conversations and the Craft Brothers. Several food and beverage vendors were available including Up in Smoke, Bistro 307, Luminous Brewhouse, and Rollin Sweet’s ice cream truck. This event was truly about celebrating the Spirit of Sheridan by providing a safe venue for people to come together as a community and have some fun. A “pass the hat” collection totaled $2,000 and the proceeds were given to the Sheridan Chamber of Commerce’s Sheridan Fund for families who were in financial need. A special thank you to Tony Forman and Paul Del Rossi for organizing the event and to JT Craft and Ebenezer Eferobor on their substantial input.

Out Of The Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk

The 10th annual Out of the Darkness Walk was held September 12, 2020 at Whitney Commons Park.

March Against Family Violence

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month. The Advocacy and Resource Center of Sheridan and Compass Center for Families hosted the “March Against Family Violence” on October 10, 2020, at Whitney Commons park. The Advocacy and Resource Center of Sheridan provides assistance to victims of all violent crimes in Sheridan County that may not have anywhere else to turn. They help inform victims of their rights, provide support navigating the criminal justice system as a result of the violence, teaching them the options and choices available to victims, connect them with resources and offer legal assistance. According to the Advocacy and Resource Center of Sheridan, by knowing their rights and having advocacy services available to them, victims of crime are less likely to feel victimized by the system, more likely to cooperate with the justice process and more likely to feel satisfied with the resolution of their cases, regardless of the outcome. The march was to raise awareness of family violence and to show that healthy families make a healthy community.
Whitney Commons, an interactive park located in the center of Sheridan between the Fulmer Library and the Senior Center at 320 West Alger, has something for everyone to enjoy. Park features include a universally accessible play structure designed for fun and safety, large turf areas supporting any number of activities, the popular water spray grounds, an amphitheater and plaza area, vintage lighting illuminating pedestrian walks and bike paths, the Dorothy King reflective flower garden, and closed circuit cameras providing park security and online viewing. Bronze art pieces reflecting and honoring Mr. Whitney’s life have also added beauty and interest to the park. Learn more about the sculptures.
