WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SAUGANASH PARK:
Hello, neighbors! We hope you've been enjoying your summer, including the Annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic. As usual, it was a great success. Many thanks to those who make it happen: our own Sauganash Park Community Association board, the Sauganash Community Association board and members, the Boy Scouts and other volunteers, our vendors and contributors, and our dues-paying members. Without the collaboration of all of these wonderful folks, this time-honored tradition couldn't possibly take place. So thanks to all!
It's that back-to-business time of year and the SPCA is no exception. The board will soon be back to work on September 10th to discuss happenings for the 2014-15 year. By now, you should have all received a current membership application, and will soon receive a letter from our president, Doug Fox, regarding the benefit of membership. We have some dynamic new board members, continue to seek new members and volunteers, and hope that our community will support the efforts of our association as your source of neighborhood information.
Please mark your calendars for our Fall General Meeting on Tuesday, September 16th, at the Sauganash Park Fieldhouse auditorium at 7:00 PM. Our guest speakers will be Alderman Margaret Laurino, 17th District Police Commander Jose Ramirez, and Andrew Szorc of the 39th Ward Bureau of Sanitation Department. They will each speak and allow time for a Q & A session.
Finally, we still need volunteer for our Block Captain initiative! Our Block Captain Coordinators, Cynthia De Salazar and Betsy Lazar, are very passionate about this effort, and we hope to get a solid database prior to the winter. The block captains have volunteered to accurately update our database with contact information, serve as point people for communication (such as moving cars for snowplows), and encourage support and involvement in Sauganash Park. If interested, contact Cynthia at (773) 895-5734.
Dues remain at the very modest rate of $30 per household/$20 for seniors 64+. That's less than $3 a month to support the many events, services, and communications the board strives to provide. Please do your part to support our community!
As the song goes, see you in September!
