Jarvis Plaza benefits from Fresh Start program

Today was the second event for the Roger Park Chamber of Commerce's Fresh Start Monday. Chamber members and volunteers cleaned up Jarvis Plaza on Jarvis Avenue. The businesses that benefited from the Fresh Start program were East View Grocery, Greenview Smart Cleaners, Goods for Less, Jarvis Coin Laundry, Jarvis/Greenview Currency Exchange, Jarvis Grill, Luzzat Restaurant and even the Alderman's office. A majority of the debris that was lying around were cigarette butts, glass and fast food restaurant litter.

"We received compliments and inquiries about our purpose all through-out the event, and we thank everyone who asked us what we were doing and expressed interest in participating during future Fresh Start Mondays. The fresh start is in reference to refreshing the cleanliness and safety of our community."
Bill Morton 

The next Fresh Start Monday event will be at Ravenswood Center located on Devon and Ravenswood on May 7th, 2012, 6pm.

If you have any suggestions for future Fresh Start Monday locations or would like to volunteer, please call the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce at (773) 850-0049.
