More Movies in the Park planned for Winnemac Park in Ravenswood

The Friends of Winnemac Park board is working to bring more of the popular Movies in the Parks to Winnemac Park in the Ravenswood neighborhood for summer 2015.  The board has tentatively secured funding for additional screenings in addition to the CPD allocated movie night.  The added events will give more families a chance to enjoy a night out in the park!  Official dates to be determined.

Friends of Winnemac Park members and supporters identified Movies in the Parks as an excellent and accessible way to offer more events for the greatest amount of park users.  Other current efforts at monthly meetings include: better promotion of programs to the community at large and hosting a large cycling event starting/ending at Winnemac Park (similar to the Ravenswood Run 5K).

Please contact to volunteer, take on a Board leadership position and/or support programing and events at Winnemac Park. It's a great way to make connections and preserve a very special neighborhood asset. The next monthly meeting is Tuesday January 20th, 6PM at Dolce Casa Cafe 4947 N Damen Avenue.

As some of you know I have been involved in volunteering at Winnemac Park and St. Matthias School in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Lincoln Square among other activities.  The area around Winnemac Park is a great place to live. If you have time of resources to give to Winnemac Park, please contact me! We have clean-up days, park programming, communications, monthly meetings and more that need community support.
