Hi everyone, My name is Rhonda and I recently moved back to Oak Park after having moved 8 years ago. I decided to move back to be closer to work (downtown Chicago). I have two adult daughters, one who just graduated from the University of IL and currently doing an internship in South Carolina. My other daughter is studying nursing and then there's my 8 year old, 2nd grade. Thank you for having me!
Hi my name is Anne and I have been living in Oak Park for about 10 years. I love it here- my boys go to school at Longfellow and they are doing great. Thanks for starting the community _ I always like to connect to out neighbors.
Hi! I'm Allison! My husband, kids and I just moved here about a month ago. Got the kids registered in school and have sifted through the majority of the boxes. So far - so great! We're enjoying OP.
I know there's a Newcomer's Club - we're looking for ways to meet new people. Our kids are middle-school aged so it's not as easy to connect with people - like when you take the babies to the playground. Ideas?
Hi Brian! Thanks for the welcome! Well, in our previous town, we did a lot of volunteering with civic and charitable organizations. We also love coffee, good food, shopping, music, art, theater, hockey and soccer. Gee, this reads a bit like a match.com ad! I might as well add that we like long walks on the beach! :)
Anyway, I'm sure we'll find our way in our new community but there's still a lot of hustle and bustle of trying to get settled.
I have been an Oak Parker for 5 years now and I am launching a business that benefits children in foster care at Hephzibah Home. I create customized children's books and digital posters that are completely customized. Each illustration is chosen by the parent and the child's image is graphically illustrated to be on each page. I am making books for all the kids that Hephzibah cares for.
Please check out the site www.myshowandtellbook.com and send me some feedback. If you are interested in a poster or a book, shoot me an email and I'll give you a code for discount.
