Several things about Rogers Park which I wanted to mention.
- Alderwoman Maria Hadden at the Touhy homeless encampment (rapid rehousing event)
2. The Wild Onion Market co-op, where I am one of the owners, was featured on WBEZ
3. The support campaign for local businesses started yesterday; I went to the kick-off event (and took my mom there). She definitely won’t be able to accomplish the quest of collecting $150 worth of local receipts (having that only $30 of that could be spent on groceries). They gave us reusable shopping bags with a huge pile of advertising materials from the Rogers Park businesses.
There was music, and free coffee and hot chocolate, and crepes with blueberries and chocolate.
4. And we biked both Friday and Saturday! Each time I think it will be the last biking of this season, but each time we get another gift of unseasonable warm weather. Yes, that’s not about Rogers Park, it’s about the lake 🙂
