CUinFP clean up day a success
On Saturday, June 24, Citizens United in Forest Park held a clean up day, removing 18 bags of garbage from Harlem and Desplaines Avenues around the el stations and expressway exits.

We would like to thank Commissioner Patrick Doolin, Public Works Director Bob Kutak and the Public Works employees for making sure that we had the equipment we needed and that the garbage bags were taken away. Marty Sorice from the Shortshop Lounge also provided a generous donation to make sure that volunteers had plenty of food and water.

Thanks especially to the 15 volunteers who spent who spent two hours of their time making Forest Park a more attractive community to the many people who enter our village from the el and expressway.
