WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SAUGANASH PARK:
Happy fall, everyone! Welcome to cooler temperatures, falling leaves, Bears football, and the start of the holiday season! We had a very productive board meeting on November 13th, and enjoyed the company of two dynamic ladies, Cynthia Salazar and Betsy Lazar. The gals have offered to spearhead our Block Captain program, which would really bring our community together block by block. What are the duties of a Block Captain? The duties are few, but impactful:
- Keep the board apprised if neighbors move in or out of the community
- Keep the board apprised of vacant homes in need of attention (lawn care, broken windows, etc.)
- Alert neighbors on your block if something/someone looks odd or suspicious
- Keeps a list of names/phone numbers so that a phone tree can be initiated in case of emergencies
Of course, the more people who get involved, the tighter and safer our community will be! We need our residents to contribute to our association--both with dues and due diligence--to maintain our status as one of Chicago's best. Please, if you haven't already, send your $30, and make a commitment to be an active participant in your neighborhood!
We have our Holiday Home Decorating Contest coming up soon. You have to be in it to win it (i.e. be an SPCA member or you won't qualify to win one of our fabulous prizes)!
The board is also working closely with Alderman Laurino, once again, regarding the Skil property. We hope to bring you news in the near future.
