Hello, everyone. I know this may be on short notice, and I apologize for the inconvenience, but I have received this notice regarding a positive loitering event/walk that will be occurring this evening at 6:00 p.m., at the corner of Allen and Kimball.
From Nextdoor Neighbor's Southwest Avondale section:
"Sending out a reminder for tomorrow's CAPS Positive Loitering & Beat Walk before the West Logan Square Block Club meeting:
We will be meeting on the corner of Allen & Kimball Ave. at 6pm, Thursday, June 27th. We will "Loiter" for a bit and then have a beat walk down Allen, Wisner and Wellington, ending at the 7pm community meeting at St. Nicholai Church on the corner of Wellington & Kedzie.
Everyone is invited to join us!! Bring noise makers :-)
Please get involved in your community.....come meet others in your neighborhood!!"
Unfortunately, since I have a class on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the summer, I will NOT be in attendance for this event. But I do encourage EVERYONE who lives in the area to please, please attend this. Allen Avenue has been a problematic area for sometime now, and this is one of the ways we can address it. Meet your neighbors, get involved and make a change!
For anyone who does go, please e-mail me some insight and/or photos if you can.
