News (updated 6/5/16):
The Carmen-Winona Block Club is an informal organization of neighborhood citizens who meet to discuss and act upon local concerns. By joining together, local people gain effective representation at the ward level. Our 48th Ward Alderman is Harry Osterman.
The Block Club takes a proactive interest in local affairs. It attends community programs such as the Beat 2024 meetings. It is engaged in the work of the Margate Park Advisory Council, whose efforts resulted (among other things) in the creation of a new play lot. It coordinates closely with a major development project in the club boundaries: the construction of a new Admiral building at the site of the old. Volunteers are always needed to maintain the public lots on Marine Dr. at Carmen and Winona.
Each summer the club organizes a neighborhood rummage/garage sale in order to raise money for club activities.
The geographical area of the Carmen-Winona Block Club is bounded by the
south side of Foster, the north side of Argyle, the west side of Marine,
and the east side of Sheridan.
There is no charge to belong to the Block Club. In order to join, simply come to a meeting or click on the "Contact Us" link. Meetings are held quarterly, or as local events dictate. See "Calendar" for dates.
