Thanks to Matt Lodge, Joe Matushka, Alderman Pawar, Gene’s Sausage, The DANK HAUS and
many others – we had an enjoyable and tasty lunch on a delightful afternoon. 
Along with many neighborhood volunteers were high school students from Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club who served lunch

What an enjoyable day we had mixing, mingling, meeting friends old and new, in our neighborhood – a place where everyone is made to feel welcome.

By the way – if your address is no longer in the 47th Ward due to the 2010 Census Ward Boundary changes – please contact Alderman Pawar’s office at 773-868-4747, let them know and they will add you to the invitation  list for upcoming events.


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
