The 24th Annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP is just around the corner!
This Saturday, April 26th, 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’ve timed the Spring Clean-Up to coincide with the first day of Early Voting in the 49th Ward’s Participatory Budgeting Election. In a few days, I’ll publish a list of the proposed projects for this year’s election and a sample ballot. Come to vote early and then grab a rake, broom or shovel and join your neighbors in cleaning up an area in our Ward that you believe needs attention.
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!
