Join Alderman Fioretti to Clean Up the Sloop Tomorrow!

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow, here is a great event our Alderman is putting on:
Save the Date: Saturday, Oct. 15

2nd Ward Fall Clean & Green

Alderman Bob Fioretti (2nd) invites you, your family and your organization to join him in volunteering for his fall, biannual, 2nd Ward Clean and Green activity on Saturday, Oct. 15, beginning promptly at 10 a.m.

What is a clean and green? That is where you can tackle the litter or weeds that you have always wanted to. Neighbors, active dog owners, Scouts, friends and local businesspeople work together to pick up trash, pull weeds, paint out graffiti and do various block beautification projects.

It can be as simple as bending over and picking up the litter that others carelessly leave behind or it can involve your hosting a site or coordinating the participation of an organization to which you belong.

Join your neighbors, business leaders, community organizers and church congregations to help make a big difference in our neighborhoods. As the saying goes, we are all in this together. The ward is our neighborhood so let's keep it clean!

Please join forces with us at one of the following locations:

Grant Park

Balbo and Columbus Drives

Monkey Bar Gym

2255 South Michigan Avenue

Please call or email Ms. Beth O'Mara at (312) 263-9273 or beth.o' to sign up individuals or groups and to make arrangements to connect with our coordinators at one of the above locations.


  1. Is Bob going to get his hands dirty with real dirt & grime? This I have to see!

  2. Does this include cleaning up city government?

  3. Total washout at the armory.
