Dear John,
 
Have you checked out the progress we've made on our community park at 815-817 W Roscoe?  Thanks to the two dozen plus volunteers who helped clean-up the park this past Saturday!  A special thanks goes to YCL and Charlotte Newfeld for bringing several volunteers.
 
We're not done; we hope to see you at our second Space Park clean-up on this Saturday, September 29th at 11AM.  We will be clearing the debris, planting perennials from the City's Clean & Green, and hopefully applying some mulch.
 
The next step is the brick wall fence.  We are applying for the necessary permits and hope to break ground soon.  Our next fundraiser is the upcoming Halloween Parade.  If you're interested in sponsoring the parade or being a food/drink vendor, let us know.
 
John
Halloween Parade 2007 
Halloween 2007
 
Dragons will descend on north Halsted Street Wednesday, October 31, 2007 at 7PM.  You'll see wizards, witches and dragons at the 11th Annual North Halsted Costume Parade sponored by Northalsted Area Merchants Association.  This year's presenting sponsor is Caribou Coffee.
 
We picked this year's theme, "Fire Breathin," after securing several dragons.  The iconic annual parade is always guaranteed to be one of the city's most outrageous and imaginative Halloween celebrations.
 
There's free registration for the costume contest and marching in the parade with categories for children, pets, adults and groups (5:30PM - 7PM at Spin - 800 W Belmont).  Winners of the costume contest will be announced immediately after the parade on the main stage located at Halsted and Roscoe.
 
Thousands are expected to either participate in or view the parade which has grown to become one of the Chicago area's must-attend Halloween events.  The parade draws a broad mix of area residents, including children and families.
 
There will be over $5,000 in costume contest cash and prizes, including airline tickets for two.  There will also be post-parade musical entertainment on the main stage.
 
Donations and net proceeds from the parade sponsors go to the building of our community park. To get involved in the planning of this event, come to our next planning meeting on Wednesday, September 26th at 7PM at Roscoe's. Volunteers and sponsors welcome.
