The rain has gone away and the sun will soon break through the clouds. The National Weather Service is predicting a sunny afternoon with temperatures in the mid-70s. In other words, it will be a beautiful day for the 25th Annual BACK TO SCHOOL PICNIC sponsored by State Senator Heather Steans and me! Join us today (Sunday, August 30th), from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. at Loyola Park (Farwell and the Lake).
The picnic will feature a host of fun activities. The world famous Jesse White Tumbling Team headlines the picnic with a stunning performance of their acrobatics. We’re also serving up free food, drinks and music and offering a host of games and prizes. We’ll have bingo for the seniors and face painting for the kids, a dance contest, a jumping jack and other carnival toys.
I’ll be handing out free passes to the Chicago Children’s Museum while supplies last. The Chicago City Clerk’s Office will also be at the picnic, helping parents sign their kids up for the City Clerk’s Kids ID program–a program that helps file fingerprints, photos and vital information on children that can be shared with law enforcement in the case they are to ever go missing or become lost.
And Twinning for Healing will be offering free children’s haircuts!
Our neighborhood high schools will each have a table. Sullivan High School’s band,“The Hectics,” will regale us with music, while the Chicago Math and Science Academy robotics team will thrill kids of all ages with their robotic creations!
In short, it will be a fun day for EVERYONE!

Heather and I look forward to seeing you today!
