Just found this site today--kudos for a great idea! :)
I'm a long-time resident of OP, but travel a lot for work. Hard to feel connected when I'm out of state/country so much. I hope to get the inside scoop on events going on when I'm back in the area (lobster mania at Poor Phil's? YUM!).
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.
