Special thanks to Gail Rutkowski who moved from the South Loop recently and resigned her director role. She gave many years to our organization and pioneered our Bash on Wabash event in the early days. We are excited to have her visit the neighborhood in the future and enjoy how far the community has come!
We have a director position available and are considering candidates. Please do not hesitate to reach out and talk about the role with us. Additionally, looking to 2015 we are seeking additional contributors on our committees. If you love the South Loop like we do – we want to talk with you!
Thank you to all of my fellow board members who give of their time in order to continue the growth of our neighborhood.
