To refuse this FREE service (and risk
being ticketed), please call Bennett at the 44th Ward
Offices (773 525 6034) with your name and address.
Numbers will be posted on all garages that don't already

this FREE service.
If you are interested in helping us post the
numbers, we are meeting at Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe)
at 12 Noon on Saturday to get supplies.
