A group of citizens known as the "Lisle 50th Anniversary Committee" planned multiple events throughout the year to commemorate Lisle's Golden Anniversary. All events had a nostalgia theme and included a Chamber Dinner Dance, street fairs that saluted the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, concerts, a parade and more. A giant birthday card and cake were also created for the celebration.
