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: 

Dust Pans 
Trash Bags 
Face Masks 
Trash Can 
Recycle Can 

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

Adelphi- a Sad Tale

Under questionable circumstances, the Adelphi Theater was torn down by a bankrupt construction company after gaining approval by Alderman Joe Moore while The Citizens for the Adelphi were attempting to raise the money to renovate and re-open the old theater. Now all that is left is a hole in the ground.

Farwell Pier- The Trash is Going Out!

The other day while out on a short stroll along the beach with Autumn Davids, we 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.
