Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
Uniting America and the Cities of North Chicago and Waukegan invite you to:
Into the Streets; Building Briges Through Community Action
Bring your friends and join us for a day of community service, and make sure to stick around for some music, FREE food, and fun! This is a family friendly event, so please, bring your kids! We will have a bouncy house, and the Waukegan Fire Department will be stopping by in their FIRE TRUCK!
Come prepared to pick weeds, paint, pick up trash, prune bushes, and help with whatever else needs to be done to spruce up 10th Street (from Sheridan Rd. to Glenn Dr.). All materials WILL BE PROVIDED so you just need to bring yourself! This event is made possible through the help of Mayor Rockingham, Mayor Motley, Alderman Fisher, and Alderman Cunningham.
