We were so happy with our latest concert at Supera Playlot. Attendance was great and everyone appeared to have a great time. Many thanks are due to Cynthia Ragona and the entire programming committee (and their spouses!) for organizing such a great morning for our families. Many new families signed up for our email updates and we would like to welcome them. Please feel free to join our monthly meetings or one of our committees (programming, landscaping/park renovation or finance/fundraising) if you are interested. We try to keep meetings brief (1 hour only), have fun and distribute tasks so that no one has to allocate too much time to organizing our activities.
We wanted to keep you posted on what is happening this week. The Chicago Park District 2007 budget hearing for the North Region is Thursday Sept. 21st at 6pm ( Warren Park 6601 N. Western Ave ). Sheila and I have prepared a presentation (including preliminary renderings of a park renovation from the CPD planning office), which we hope will confirm our status as a renovation project on the 2007 CPD calendar. If anyone is able to join us there, we understand that it looks very good to the superintendent of parks when many people show up to support their project. If you can’t make it, we will be holding our monthly meeting on Tuesday, Sept 26th at 7pm (Sheila’s house at 1224 W. Draper). We plan to provide a summary of the budget meeting there. In addition, this monthly meeting is an important one, where we will discuss some of the plans for renovating the park. The park district has given us three options for our plans to renovate, so we need to discuss what direction to take. Anyone who is a member of the landscaping committee or who wants to have some input into this project should try to come. There are some interesting, important decisions to make.
Finally, don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Halloween party on Oct. 28th. This should be another great party for the whole family.
Amy and Sheila
