OCTOBER 13th, Openlands TREE PLANTING DAY !We need volunteers to help plant trees on Wednesday, October 13th. The planting is scheduled from 9-1pm, although we are usually done early. This is our biennial project with Openlands, and we will add 13 more trees to the 100+ already planted in our community since 2013. We are hoping for at least 20 volunteers to help TreeKeepers with the digging, mulching and planting of trees in our parkways. TreeKeepers provide their expertise and experience, as volunteers work together putting the trees in the ground. Everyone that has helped in the past comes away with more knowledge about trees and a few more wonderful neighbor connections. This is the first year we have been assigned a weekday planting date, so if you can spare a few hours that morning, your help will be greatly appreciated! In order to sign up, please send an email to trees@ravenswoodmanor.com. Further details will then be sent out to all volunteers. Thank you for your support! ... See MoreSee Less

Save the Date! LAPOINTE PARK REDEDICATION CEREMONY SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24th, 1 pm Please join your neighbors at Arthur J. LaPointe Park as we thank the supporters of the park’s most recent renovation. It was three years ago that the RMIA solicited neighbors to form a committee and implement a new path forward for the park. Generous funds through neighbor donations as well as RMIA support made this possible. This is not Chicago Park District property, so over many decades we have taken on the task of managing and deciding what is best for this open space in our hood. It has become a wonderful gathering space as well as a native plant stopover on a pollinator pathway for birds and insects. A most welcome addition has been the new benches! We will recognize the families that adopted the benches and sundial to honor their loved ones who were longtime Manor residents. We will also speak to the history of this MWRD (Metropolitan Water Reclamation District) property as well as the NeighborSpace connection. We hope to see you there! Please RSVP to at bit.ly/LPD1024Also, if you would like to support the ongoing landscaping needs/upgrades for LaPointe Park, donations can still be made at www.gofundme.com/f/xhptc-lapointe-park-redesign. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
