CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – NORWOOD PARK, LINCOLN PARK, LINCOLN SQUARE, LOOP, EVANSTON

NORWOOD PARK

Under the federal Computers For Learning program, the U.S. General Services Administration is donating about $4 million worth of computers and printers to Chicago schools.  The GSA said all of the computers were wiped clean before they were donated to schools, so no sensitive information would be compromised.  Schools that receive the equipment will use the computers and printers to supplement existing programs or create new learning programs.

LINCOLN PARK

In the works since the summer, The Hotel Lincoln, a boutique concept for the old Park View Hotel building at Lincoln & Clark, is nearing completion. A good deal of time was devoted to the cafe, bar, and room service schemes, on account of the symbiosis between neighboring Perennial Virant and the hotel management. Each room will feature the hotel's calling card - kitchy Jeff Koons-esque porcelain piggy banks, one a squirrel, the other a poodle - for the collection of loose change for charitable donation.

LINCOLN SQUARE

Eric Delli Bovi has been appointed the new Executive Director of Urban Gateways, effective February 13. Eric comes to us from the Old Town School of Folk Music, where for the last 12 years he held the positions of Director of External Affairs, Director of Development, Director of Education Outreach, and Interim Executive Director.  While at the Old Town School, Eric has been at the helm of some of the school's most noteworthy accomplishments -- including its capital campaign for the new arts facility that just opened in January 2012. 

LOOP

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is back. There will be five straight days of six performances with two different programs.  They perform thrilling premieres and new productions plus returning audience favorites.  Alvin Ailey wrote: "It's interesting how my personal relationships affect my creativity. It seems as though nearly all of my dances have some basis in an event or a feeling I've had that I can usually trace."

EVANSTON

Evanston Township High School has scheduled their Volunteer Fair for February 8 from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.  This is an opportunity for non-profit organizations in Evanston to look for volunteers in conjunction with the school's Community Service Office.  School community service coordinator, Mary Collins says the fair "promotes volunteerism and it's a terrific service that ETHS provides to our community."
