WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SAUGANASH PARK:
It seems we've garnered Mother Nature's favor this winter, and have enjoyed many wonderful days of shovel-free weather. While our eastern neighbors have been hit with most unfavorable conditions, we Chicagoans are traipsing around our communities free of mittens, scarves and winter boots. Heck, we've even seen some shorts! Paunxsutawny Phil fuels our longing for spring with his prediction for winter's early end. And if you have a sweetheart with whom to share this Valentine's Day, you're pretty set for warmth this month!
As you've probably seen, the landscape of our neighborhood is undergoing its most recent change with the new Sauganash Glen homes. Construction of three new homes has begun, and the sales office is open and ready for business.
At our most recent CAPS meeting on January 27th, we learned that Arshad Thomas (the last of the squatters to be arrested in conjunction with the 4200 Rosemont case) will have a hearing at the Cook County Courthouse at 26th and California in March. The 17th District Court Advocacy Committee highly recommends an attendance of concerned citizens as our presence has a powerful effect on the presiding judge. Please remember how this ring of criminals terrorized our neighborhood for several days, and consider your involvement to put them behind bars, where they belong--carpool, if necessary!
Our Spring General Meeting will commence on Tuesday, April 19th. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for detailed information through this site and in the mail.
As always, we encourage your membership to help maintain our services and events. Here's how to do it:
$30 dues ($20 for seniors 64+) may be paid in the following manners:
In Person: North Shore Community Bank, 4343 W. Peterson Avenue - Make sure they deposit into the SPCA account!
Mail your check: Treasurer, P.O. Box 46174, Chicago, IL 60646-0174
It is our sincere hope that you will gladly support the SPCA in all of its efforts. We count on you, and with everyone's participation we can continue to do great work and, hopefully, infuse some new events into our agenda in the coming years.
Thank you for making ours one of the best neighborhoods in the City of Chicago!
