Issue No. 7
July has sprung upon us! What a great time of year! Summer fun, children out of school... And that means a busier season for us all.
On July 12th, we're having our rescheduled summer walkathon! Occurring every second Thursday all summer long, we'll be taking strolls throughout the neighborhood and creating some tourism, stopping into local stores to say hello and introduce them to our residents.

The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce attended the ASI Conference with Quest Network Services on Thursday June 21st. The event went from 9am to 9pm and had a plethora of companies speaking about their products. For more information, visit the links below.
On June 22nd from 6-8pm, the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce held their first annual Silent Auction at Alden Village North.
Alden Village North had a lovely, and delicious, display of food for those in attendance. There was fruit (the secretary's favorite of watermelon and cantaloupe), chicken caesar salad wraps, and many beverages. We received donations of food from Chipotle and Morse Gyros making the event a great success!
Most of our items were auctioned or raffled off after our speakers, Nehaz from Earth Center, and David Torrey, former Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society President, spoke in front of our crowd.
A huge thanks to MaryEllen, Christie, and Chris for making this event a great success and being so amazing in the set-up and take-down process.
A big thank you to David and Nehaz for speaking at our event.
