The 22nd Annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP is just around the corner!
This Saturday, April 21st, hundreds of 49th Ward residents will fan out across the neighborhood, picking up trash, cutting down weeds and planting flowers. We’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and rolls at the 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis) and head out into the neighborhood for some sprucing up. We’ll return to the office at lunchtime for a fabulous“Taste of the 49th Ward,” featuring food from around the world donated by a vast array of 49th Ward restaurants, guaranteed to satisfy every culinary taste.
This year we’re targeting some of the vacant lots on Howard Street, but if you or your group has an area in the Ward that you believe needs attention, by all means go for it! We’ll provide all the supplies you’ll need, including brooms, shovels, rakes and gloves.
This is a wonderful time for block clubs, condominium associations, church groups, and lots of other organizations to come together with individual members of the community to help get the ward ready for the spring and summer. Bring the kids!
To register for this event, reply to this e-mail or call our office at 773-338-5796 and let us know how many folks you’re bringing.
I’ll see you Saturday!
