WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SAUGANASH PARK:
Welcome to fall and the 2015-16 SPCA year! It's football and Homecoming season, Oktoberfest time, Halloween, apple cider and pumpkin spice time--all good things! Okay, yes, it's time to cover the pool and get out the rakes, too. We're not complaining, though.
Our own little corner of Chicago has a new source of pride as well. The Spirit of Sauganash, a video depicting our neighborhood history through the making of the Sauganash mural, is now available for purchase. This makes a great gift for anyone from the Sauganash area, especially those promoting their businesses in this fine community. The video is available exclusively at Donna's Garden, 4155 W. Peterson Avenue, for the cost of $20. Proceeds will fund mural maintenance.
Unfortunately, we must cancel our Fall General Meeting this year. After several attempts, we just could not get our guest speakers' schedules to coincide. Board members will remain the same as last year with one exception. We are in need of a new board secretary, so if you have interest in this post, please let us know. Soon you will all receive our President's Letter in the mail. With it, of course, is an appeal to join the association so we can meet our goals. While we met many of you during the fun 4th of July festivities and received dues (thank you to those timely folks!), we hope that the rest of our households will please contribute to the success of our association. Our small but mighty board continues to bring you information through this Web site and social media pages, plan and execute community social events, and bring much-needed services like supplementary snow plowing to our area. Though our time is purely volunteer, the tools, services and other supplies are not. That's why it's so important to have our WHOLE SPCA community involved in paying dues. For a modest sum--that has not increased in many years--we have been able to provide these extras. Please remit payment to:
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!
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
