Block Clubs of Lincoln Park Unite!

SNA has setup a new Lincoln Park Block Club website for new or established block clubs in Lincoln Park where we can communicate safety issues, crimes, new ideas and general concerns between other block clubs in Lincoln Park.  People who form block clubs are concerned and care about their communities and share information, identify concerns and act collectively to address those concerns. “We cannot overcome what we ignore.” If we stay connected and communicate issues we will be vigilant and stronger.

Lincoln Yards: When can we talk?

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” —Jane Jacobs

Hello Sheffield Neighborhood Association members and fellow neighbors.  

First of all I want to wish all fathers and grandfathers a very happy Father’s Day. I hope you enjoy your well deserved time with your family, and I wish you all well.

AFS International Exchange Students

 

AFS is looking for families to host foreign exchange high school students for the 2018/2019 school year.  You choose the student who will be the best fit for your family.  Students arrive with their own spending money, excellent medical coverage, and are looking forward to participating as active members of their host families, schools, and communities.  For more information, please contact Linda Mellis at 773-327-9123 or afs.mellis@gmail.com.  

Patricia Hayes

 

It is with heavy hearts that the Sheffield Neighborhood Association Board of Directors informs you of the passing of our fellow Board member and dear friend, Patricia Hayes. 

When people heard of Patty’s passing, they shared their thoughts with our group.  We would like to share just a handful of those sentiments with you.

“She was a wonderful woman who worked so hard for the community and the SNA.  She will be dearly missed.  I am so saddened to hear of her passing.  May she rest in peace.”
