Interesting note over on the Edgewater Community Buzz blog about the National Day of Service and how it's being observed 'round these parts:
However, we couldn't help but notice an omission in the participating wards and sponsors:
There will be two starting locations
- 48th Ward Service Office - 5533 N. Broadway, Chicago, IL 60640 and
- 47th Ward Service Office - 4237 N. Lincoln, Chicago, IL 60625
Sponsored by State Senator Heather Steans, Alderman Gene Schulter, State Representative Harry Osterman, State Representative Greg Harris, Alderman Mary Ann Smith, Alderman Joe Moore, Committeeman Tom Sharpe, Committeeman Carol Ronen, Committeeman David Fagus, Edgewater Chamber of Commerce, Edgewater Community Council, and Edgewater Beautiful
Please join in the neighboring communities in providing service to Uptown, Edgewater and Ravenswood. Read all about it at the Edgewater Community Buzz.
Update: We heard from Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer's office, and she's also sponsoring this Day of Service. We regret the omission.
