To the Editor:
On behalf of the Chicago Hyde Park Village, I want to thank the Herald, Spencer Bibbs, and all our supporters for helping make our Fall Frolic event on Sunday, Oct. 1, such a success. Spencer’s pictures really captured the spirit of the event — Artful Aging— which also highlights our partnership with the Hyde Park Art Center in providing programs that promote successful aging through many artistic endeavors. We have special thanks for the Hyde Park Art Center, and Gregory Smith, the Outreach Program Manager, for facilitating our event. The funds raised from donations, ads and sponsorships will help support our programming to keep our seniors living and involved in our community.
Come celebrate our Anniversary on Thursday, Nov. 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hyde Park Bank, 1525 E. 53rd St. Discount parking available. Bring your friends who would like to know more about the Village.
We want to remind all our neighbors that the Village is co-sponsoring a Pot-luck Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, November 23, around 12:30 p.m. at Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S. Woodlawn Ave. Bring a side dish, or a beverage to share. If you want to volunteer, call Margaret Huyck at 312-833-0415.

President, Chicago Hyde Park Village
