RM Global Security article in DNAinfo

Local Security Firms Race to Compete for Medical Marijuana Clinic Contracts

RM Global Security has joined the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce and hopes to partner with dispensaries vying for storefont space in the neighborhood, according to Medrano and chamber president Bill Morton. Medrano said local firms like his five-year-old company should be considered first to protect Chicago’s 13 medical marijuana dispensaries and the 22 cultivation centers across the state.

“Big companies have already made their presence known, and the dispensary licensees, understandably, they’re in a big hurry, they don’t have time to look at a small company like myself who calls them up or knocks on their door,” Medrano, 61, told DNAinfo Chicago. “They want somebody who has a nice, established presence. Already some of the big boys from Colorado are out here making a major showing in Illinois.”

Celebrate Sam Leone this Sunday!

The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the upcoming Celebrating Sam Leone fundraiser with the Rogers Park / West Ridge Historical Society at Towbar on Sunday afternoon.

This is the first fundraiser of the new Leone Beach Park Advisory Council so they can support park programs and improvements, including scholarships for families with children who cannot afford Chicago Park District programs and events.

Chris Serb and other former and present Leone Beach lifeguards will share their stories which highlight the importance of the Jr. Lifeguard program and history of Sam Leone's "Sam's Boys" who are Rogers Park heroes  in their own right.

We will also be raffling off the official celebratory Sam Leone event banner (5ft in height). $10 donation at the door goes directly to the Leone Beach Park Advisory Council. Towbar will have food and drinks available for sale during the event.
