EVA General Membership Meeting: July 10th

Because of the July 4 holiday, the July EVA monthly membership meeting will be
held on Tuesday, July 10, at 7 pm, and the Board meeting on Monday July 16th at
6:30pm (public welcome) at Happy Village Tavern.

Kara Salgado, the Executive Director of West Town Chamber of Commerce, has
agreed to be the guest speaker at the EVA July meeting on Tuesday, July 10.
Kara’s presentation will address such issues as the chamber’s service area, recent
accomplishments, goals for the future, and upcoming events such as the Renegade
Craft Fair (recently written up in The New York Times) and West Fest.

We hope that her presentation will complement the excellent talk presented by Paula
Barrington, Executive Director of the Wicker Park & Bucktown Chamber of Commerce,
at our June meeting. Please come to the July meeting to hear how the
West Town Chamber is helping to shape our community’s future. Also, Phil
McFarland, one of the owners of Piccolo, a new Italian-style café at
859 N. Damen, and set to open on July 6, will be at the July EVA meeting to introduce
his café to its EVA neighbors.
