Our December, 2008 Monthly Meeting
We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, held our December, 2008 monthly meeting at the Whitney Young Branch of the Chicago Public Library, 7901 South King Drive, to discuss the issues of fire safety in the winter season, the high time for house fires in Chicago. It was taken from the Chicago Fire Department that the time for getting carbon monoxide detectors ($25) is now, with the changing of batteries in your smoke detectors with the biannual time change, with the Pumpkin and the Easter Bunny. The crime report took into account that police response to an ongoing crime could take up to 40 minutes, way too long for safety. The Black Wall Street, proposed for 75Th Street between State Street and Cottage Grove Avenue was reviewed. It was also noted the wave of empty and vacant storefronts along 75Th and 79Th Streets in this area. Ester's was a spicy and hot sauce seeking shelf space at Jewel's, Albertson's, Dominick's, and Safeway. The library's branch manager urged all members to come into the library to utilize the 22 new computers, 10 for adults, 12 for juveniles provided by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the Chicago Public Library. High attendance packed the library's auditorium as the year's last meeting before the Holiday Season. You may also visit our website at http://www.capcc.org/.
