Plant Swap Reminder, Yard Sale+CAKE?, New Alder Info, & Other Stuff!

The Spring Plant Swap is This Saturday!

Edgewater Glen’s Spring Plant Swap will be held Sat. May 20th from 10am til noon in the backyard of 1420 W. Glenlake, weather permitting. Rain delay date is the next day, Sun. May 21st, same time & place. Spring is a great time to thin & share hostas, ferns, and any other plants or gardening paraphernalia that you’d like to find a home for. Even if you don’t have anything to share, come & meet your gardening neighbors. We often have leftovers that need a home. For more info contact Kim Kaulas at or 773-368-3949.

New Alderwoman Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth

This is Leni’s first week. She’s already hired a Chief of Staff, Nicole Granacki (campaign fundraising chair, non-profit director, and Peirce LSC Vice Chair) and a Director of Constituent Services, Angel Rubi Navarijo (former Constituent Services Coordinator for Alderman Andre Vasquez). She has already agreed to speak at our Fall Community Meeting on October 16th, but we were going ask some basic questions now (e.g., how to escalate 311 requests). We’ll let you know what she says and keep you in the loop on any town halls, etc. You can sign up for her newsletter here
