CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS - NORWOOD PARK, WEST LOOP, LINCOLN PARK, NAPERVILLE, GOLD COAST

NORWOOD PARK

Tax season is over for those of you who did not file for an extension. So it's time to free up some desk space and shred some old documents. Norwood Park is offering Free Shredding Events on Saturday mornings from this Saturday, 4/23, until June 25th. There's a limit of 3 paper bags or 3 small boxes worth of shredding so gather your most sensitive documents and get ready to shred.

WEST LOOP

The City of Chicago's Small Business Improvement Fund is looking to help small business properties by offering financial assistance for eligible permanent building improvement costs. The West Loop Community Organization is holding a Central West SBIF Roll-Out Meeting to discuss details and opportunities for accessing the grant. RSVP by Monday, 4/25, for the Tuesday April 26th event at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls (1140 W. Jackson St.) from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. You can ask questions and RSVP by contacting WLCO Executive Director Carla Agostinelli at 312-666-1991 or carla@westloop.org.

LINCOLN PARK

Now it's Bridgeview Bank's turn to welcome neighbors and new clients for an evening of food and fine art at their Lincoln Park branch at 1970 N. Halsted from 5:30pm - 7:30pm next Thursday, 4/28. I've been noticing more banks using interesting community events for getting more people into their doors. This event is open to the public and will feature paintings by Josh Moulton, woodworking by Caroline Robe, treats provided by Geja's Cafe, Insomnia Cookies, and more. RSVP by emailing rsvp@bridgeviewbank.com

NAPERVILLE

With all the news of continued difficulty between Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Teachers Union, it's great to hear of Naperville's (School District 203) attempts to incentivize their need to fill substitute teaching positions by offering more competitive pay. It's no easy feat for a teacher to call in for a sick day as they are required to also submit curricula for their time off so whomever takes over the class will keep their students on track with the school year. Substitute teachers do so much more than keeping the classroom from becoming unruly while their usual routine is disrupted by a teacher's well-deserved absence. So District 203 is offering to raise their pay scale for substitute teachers so that they may earn closer to or above $100 per day as opposed to some Districts' pay of $85 - $90 per day. District 203 has budgeted to spend up to $2.5 million on substitute teachers this year. Pay will also be raised for substitute classroom nurses, licensed practical nurses, and home/hospital tutors.

GOLD COAST

Get ready to "Toast the Coast" in 2016 by purchasing your ticket for the Wednesday May 11th event from 6:00pm - 9:00pm at The Racquet Club of Chicago (1365 N. Dearborn Parkway). If you're already a member of the Gold Coast Neighbors Association then admission is only $125. Non-members admission is $150. Entertainment will provided by Stanley Paul & His Trio which will be a lucky second opportunity to catch their performance since their appearance this Sunday, 4/24, at The Pump Room is already sold out!
