Next Meeting. Our next meeting will be a meet-and-greet event with District B School Board candidates, on Tuesday, October 9 at the Commonwealth Baptist Church (700 Commonwealth Avenue), starting at 7:30pm. (Please note the changed date – some of our early publicity on Facebook was for a different date.)
Council Meet-and-Greet. Thanks to all who joined us on September 20 for our meet-and-greet with the Council and mayoral candidates. All of the candidates were in attendance and provided a brief overview of their priorities, as well as interacted directly with Rosemont residents. Also, our sheriff and police liaisons provide updated; an issue throughout the city continues to be thefts from unlocked cars.
