Thanks to all who supported Drop-In

To the Editor:

Chicago Hyde Park Village thanks everyone who came to and supported our pilot Drop-In program at Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S. Woodlawn Ave. The third Drop-In last Friday, June 7, was the best of all. We had some lively discussions, delicious focaccia sandwiches prepared for us by Hyde Park Produce and “stress baked” (it’s exam time!) scones prepared for us by student bakers from Burton Judson dorm.

Sadly, that was the last of the pilot Drop-Ins. There will not be a Drop-in this coming Friday. The University of Chicago student group, spearheaded by Andrew Holzman, is hoping to join forces with us again in the fall to resume the program. In the meantime, we are exploring ways to bring a few Drop-Ins to you over the summer. Watch for notices.

Again, thanks to all who joined us these past three Fridays and for your thoughts and suggestions.

Susan Alitto
President, Chicago Hyde Park Village
