United Blocks of West Humboldt Park April Meeting Results

The United Blocks of West Humboldt Park(TUBWHP) meets on the first Thursday of the month at 7PM at Association House 1116 N. Kedzie. This is immediately following the CAPS Beat 1121 meeting, which starts at 6PM.

TUBWHP will once again volunteer to participate in the Humboldt Park Earth Day Clean-up and Celebration on Saturday April 18th. Our volunteers will meet in front of Association House at 9am and walk over to the ponds near the stables at Division St and Humboldt Blvd. Rich Karwowski will put on his hip waders and clean the pond from the inside, while the rest of us will clean it from the outside. Please join us in this rewarding and fun day. Dress appropriately for the weather and wear work gloves. We will get help again this year from "One Brick", a group of volunteers that helps with many projects throughout the city. Make them feel welcome!!!

TUBWHP will also donate $50 to put on a flower planting booth for the kids that afternoon.

We are still trying to get the Farmers Market finalized for this summer. Anyone interested in selling their own veggies or manning the booth should contact glenn(click on contact area at right side of this page).

TUBWHP is planning a Summer Season Kickoff Party for the new playlot near Kedzie and Division, date to be determined.

We are also looking at dates for a block party this summer, in late July or early August. We need volunteers for the block party committee, so please sign up!

We will also plan on having a FUNdraiser in the fall. In the past we have had some great wine tastings. Any ideas for this falls FUNdraiser??? Let us know.

Thanks for reading, and we'll see you on the 18th!!!
