The 21st Annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP is just around the corner! This Saturday, April 16th, hundreds of 49th Ward residents will fan out across the neighborhood, picking up trash, cutting down weeds and planting flowers. We’ll meet for coffee and rolls at 9:00 a.m., head out into the neighborhood for some sprucing up and return 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.
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.
On your way to cleaning the neighborhood, clean your home and office, as well! Back by popular demand, Midway Document Destruction’s Mobile Shredding Truck will be parked in the lot outside my office this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12 Noon, providing free paper shredding and recycling to residents of the 49th Ward. Get rid of any old or unwanted papers, and, because the documents are shredded, you don’t have to worry about anyone being able to read your private information.
Just bring your old documents to the truck, where they will be shredded on the spot and then taken away to be recycled.
Bring any documents you no longer need or want but that might contain personal or private information. Examples include:
- Bank statements
- Outdated medical records
- Pay stubs
- Old bills and receipts
- Tax returns older than seven years
- Credit card offers
Finally, bring your bicycle to the Spring Clean-Up and get a FREE tune up courtesy of Robert’s Cycle. Robert will be outside my office from 9:00 a.m. to 12 Noon.
I hope to see you on Saturday, April 16th, at 9:00 am.
