SEOPCO: Celebrating a decade of bringing neighbors together.
Can you believe SEOPCO was formed 10 years ago? We’ve accomplished a lot in the past decade! Working together as a community, we’ve:
* Helped transform the image of Southeast Oak Park, now widely known as a great place to live.
* Celebrated the neighborhood every summer in Barrie Park with Movie Night and Barrie Fest.
* Brought critical issues and political candidates to public forums held at Irving School.
* Regularly sent important information via e-mail to over 500 households.
* Showcased the neighborhood on our web site and on Facebook.
* Offered a voice for expressing neighborhood concerns about public safety, transportation, economic development, neighborhood pride and civic engagement.
As we begin our second decade, we need your financial support. SEOPCO’s annual budget is around $5,000. Barrie Fest and Movie Night require about 80% of our budget. These expenses have been largely underwritten by local businesses.
Now it’s time to show our current sponsors that Southeast Oak Parkers are also willing to support SEOPCO’s efforts on behalf of the neighborhood. So many people tell us that they appreciate what SEOPCO does. Now we need to have that appreciation expressed with a modest gesture of financial support.
Our suggested household annual membership is just $20. Please take a moment to donate:
