Reminder! Winnemac Park ONLINE REGISTRATION on December 2nd, 9:00am. Don't forget!

Winnemac Park winter session Online Registration is 
Tuesday December 2nd, 2014 at 9:00am. 
Pass on to your neighbors!



The two main categories are Basketball and Aquatics.  Bitty Basketball held at Chappell school on Tuesdays for 5yr olds to 7yr olds  and Thursdays for 8yr olds to 10yr olds (both 6pm to 7pm) is a great affordable way to get the kids exercise in the winter. It's close by and only $30.00.

Swim lessons and aquatic sports are held at Amundsen High School.  The Welles Park pool is closed so more demand may shift to the Winnemac Park program! Make sure you save your favorites Online and put registration times in your calendar now.

Please pass the registration times on to your neighbors. I will have my kids in both Bitty Basketball programs this year and will volunteer for most sessions. We look forward to seeing our neighbors!

 Hello everyone!  Please join us for the Friends of Winnemac Park advisory meeting to learn about a few twists heading into the New Year.

1. The neighborhood group and existing non profit advisory council to Winnemac Park will operate under "Friends of Winnemac Park".  This is the non-profit name already filed with the state.  Friends of Winnemac Park have helped bring the play-lot and wildlife improvements to the park in the past (you love both, no?).  More recently neighbors have cultivated leaders for our Local School Councils, raised money for schools and hosted an annual park clean-up.

2. The current Winnemac Park Neighbors web site www.winnemac.org and the Facebook pages will change their titles to "Friends of Winnemac Park".

3. Friends of Winnemac Park is committed to a monthly meeting with the Winnemac Park supervisor. The first meeting will be Tuesday November 18th, 2014 at 6:00pm at Dolce Casa Cafe 4947 N Damen, Chicago.  This will be the one stop shop for community input for Winnemac Park.  We hope to make this meeting the "Third Tuesday of every month".

4. Finally, Friends of Winnemac Park volunteers and web site administrators will continue to help host and promote community meetings with officials, highlight local business around the park, help fund-raising efforts and inform neighbors around the park.

This month's meeting of Friends of Winnemac Park will focus on upcoming park programing, potential Board Positions for Friends of Winnemac Park and discussion of park issues, potential programs and park fundraisers. Ideas include a playground committee, a student nature day in the park and music events. Bring your concerns and compliments and get ready to help in small ways or BIG.

If you love Winnemac Park and the community around it... this is the place for you! Please consider lending your experience, time and resources to help maintain and improve one of the best parks  in Chicago.
