We hope you will come out and join us for this annual event. The new Alderman of the First Ward will be there helping us spruce up the neighborhood and will be feeding the volunteers with a post-clean-up barbecue. If you have friends in the neighborhood please forward this email on to them. If you are interested in receiving these updates about events at Commercial Park and Honore, Superior and Snowberry playlots please head to our website http://www.commercialpark.org and click on subscribe! Hope to see new and old faces this Saturday. ~ Georgia Burke
New Solar Powered Trash Compactor at CP!
Have you seen it??? Our park was chosen by the Chicago Park District to receive one of the new solar powered trash compactors that have been going in a few parks across the city. Just in time for the busy days of summer and for Earth Day…
Speaking of Earth Day….In honor of Earth Day this year our parks will be participating in two great events to support cleaning up our parks and our neighborhood. Friends of the Park is sponsoring the Earth Day Parks and Preserve Clean Up and the 1st Ward is taking part in the City of Chicago’s Clean & Green. To take part in both events meet up at Commercial Park at 9 am on Saturday, April 17. We will work to clean up the streets and parks in our neighborhood, including Superior, Honore and Snowberry Playlots. Around lunch time please head back to Commercial where we are planning to have a bar-b-que and enjoy some time together as a neighborhood. Plan to bring gloves if you have them. Rakes, shovels and garbage bags will be provided.
More details to follow on Friday!
