On June 15th, over a thousand friends and neighbors gathered at the Beverly Arts Center for the annual 19th Ward Cocktail Reception. I was both humbled and overwhelmed by the community’s support that evening. Today, I am writing with the hope that you too will support our efforts and become a member of this important community organization.
The generosity of our members allows us to operate a full-time service office to assist both residents and businesses. In addition, we host a wide variety of community events for the families of Beverly, Morgan Park and Mt. Greenwood. These things would not be possible without support from residents like you. The work done by this organization will keep our neighborhood strong for the future.
Please consider supporting the 19th Ward by using the enclosed response card or visiting www.the19thward.com to purchase a membership for 2017. Together we can accomplish great things for the future of this wonderful neighborhood. Thank you in advance for any consideration you can offer.
