Every year around this week, our emails start to be filled with "Black Friday" deals and promotions for the annual "Small Business Saturday" - just a reminder to visit and support our WRP business community. While we don't shop on Saturday, please make an effort to get to know the local merchants and support the businesses in your neighborhood.
Thanks to Alderman Debra Silverstein, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago Public Library and the Chicago Housing Authority, we have a new library coming to West Rogers Park! JCCWRP was a key player in the LEARN coalition that has advocated for this library and collected petitions raising awareness for upgrading this important neighborhood resource. We will continue to share updates on these efforts and hope you will share your feedback with us.
There will be a public meeting hosted by the Alderman to discuss the new library coming to the 50th Ward. Please mark your calendar for the meeting on Monday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Warren Park, 6601 N. Western, to hear from representatives from the city agencies. We encourage everyone to attend and in so doing help to shape this initiative in WRP!
Finally, if you have a family member or neighbor who is not yet receiving our email updates, please let me know via email firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can add them to our weekly distribution.
