Help the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce with Fresh Start Mondays!



Fresh Start Monday's, an event held by the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce, has been occurring the first and third Monday's since this past April. The events have been a success, having a variety of people attend and even more express interest. 

 So far, they've covered 7315 N. Sheridan Road, following that, they worked on Jarvis Plaza, then they worked on Ravenswood Center. This past Fresh Start Monday they worked on Roger's Plaza. Their next event will be June 4th at their standard 6pm. They will be working on the corner of Estes Avenue and Clark Street near the old Adelphi Theater. If you can't make it out to the events for whatever reason, you can still help!

 They would gladly take donations for the event. Charmers Cafe, for example, donated some trash bags to assist in the endeavor. 


 Some of the items the Chamber needs are: 

 Brooms
Dust Pans 
Trash Bags 
Aprons 
Face Masks 
Trash Can 
Recycle Can 


If you'd like to donate any of these items, please, contact them via e-mail at rogersparkchamberofcommerce@gmail.com or call them at (773) 850-0049.

New Garbage Can at Farwell Pier


The other day while out on a short stroll along the beach, I noticed a change at the pier. The change was small yet profound: there was a trash container at the location! There is an active discussion on Everyblock about Farwell Pier, so feel free to follow that discussion or start a new one here in regards to your feelings and opinions.

Kitten in Need of Home





I found this adorable kitten nearly two weeks ago on my back stairs on Farwell. I found his sister a home, but he still needs one. I have two cats already and can't keep him. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated, maybe a poster at Quest and a posting on your blog or facebook?
Thanks tons-

The Lighthouse




Bill Morton and I were walking along Loyola Beach and, as usual, took in the lighthouse. Bill took a shot from a distance and I had asked if anyone had gotten a perspective from in the water. Neither of us could think of such an occurrence so I went for a quick swim and took the photos. I must say, the water at that point was FREEZING!

Crews Search for Person in Lake at Loyola Beach



Emergency crews searched Lake Michigan tonight after two other people in distress were pulled from the water and reported a third was missing.

Downtown Skyline


I don't think many people realize just how close we are to downtown Chicago... I was at the lighthouse on the pier at Loyola Beach just staring at how close it was.
