Friends of Lombard - Kickoff and Free Pierogis - Today!

From our friends at Swift Planning:
It's time for action!  You and your neighbors told us what you wanted North Lombard to be.  Our team took that vision and put together a list of strategies for how the community can get there.  And you, together with your fellow neighbors and business owners on this list, you are the ones who have stepped forward to be an active part of positive change for your street. 

Kevin and Mel, owners of the Foggy Notion bar in Arbor Lodge, have donated their space for this meeting.  Better yet, they're making homemade pierogies for you!  Come early at 6 for free appetizers and enjoy a special extended Happy Hour at the cash bar until 8pm.  Here are the details:

Kickoff Meeting Details
Date: Tuesday, June 11th
Time: 6:00pm mingle/snack; 6:30pm meeting begins
Bring: A notebook & pen
What: Meet your neighbors, eat some pierogies, learn about some short-term and long-term projects you can help with, and build some teams around some of these ideas.

Being a local superhero can be as simple as writing an e-mail to your City officials to ask for a better traffic signal or as involved as spearheading the formation of a Lombard Business Association.  You can be as active as you want to be.  Come to the meeting and find out what some of those opportunities are, meet other people who care about the same things you do, and figure out where you want to fit into this new group.  We'll even have some local experts on hand who can help with some of the specific projects. 

If you'd like to be involved but can't make the meeting, don't worry.  We'll send a follow-up e-mail to re-cap the meeting and list next steps. 

Please e-mail us with any questions, and we look forward to seeing you on June 11th!
