Irish Eyes are Smiling (It's not over yet)

Members of the South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade planning committee are meeting tonight for the first time since voting to end Beverly's annual parade.

The 25-member committee will brainstorm ideas and go over community suggestions for how to celebrate the holiday away from the parade down Western Avenue.

But a decision likely won't be reached until this summer.

"I'm looking at this as a long evaluation process," member Mary Beth Sheehan said today.

Autism Speaks - Jewel shop-n-share

Autism Speaks will hold a Shop & Share fund raising program on the dates of April 20th thru the 22nd and also on April 27th thru the 29th, 2009 at all Jewel-Osco Stores.

By shopping at Jewel-Osco on one of those days, 5% of the total purchase, excluding tax, will be donated by Jewel-Osco to our organization. It’s a great way to help these kids and it will not cost you a cent.

Autism Speaks will use the money generated by their Shop & Share to create awareness and research for a cure.

Anyone interested in helping Autism Speaks by shopping at Jewel-Osco on those dates will need a Shop & Share Identification Slip - please go to the link below for slip.


Please feel free to pass this along. Thanks for helping raise money for Autism
