Addition to the Subway Mural

A note from a DMPA board member: 

There was a space in between the "Dundee Subway" letters that was a possible target for future graffiti.  It was also pointed out to me that we had not included our light posts and flower baskets in any of the murals. After contacting several schools and other possible artists, my daughter Catrina said she could do it and with the nice weather this weekend, her new mural was painted to the wall in the tunnel.  It looks great and it now has the anti-graffiti coating on it.  I am attaching a picture of the finished product.

2017 Flower Basket Information

It is that time of year... Flower Basket collection. Planting begins in early March and we need ALL of the donations by that time. **Your Block Captain will also be collecting if you prefer checks or cash but we hope more and more people take advantage via the convenient online donations. It is VERY easy and you have several payment options. Your donation will of course be filed with your block (don't forget to note your address). 

Please take into consideration that there are flower baskets at the "entrances" to the neighborhood that are not on a particular block. The neighborhood "as a whole" takes care of these with the extra donations we receive. That being said, know that any extra donations go toward these baskets, damaged or stolen baskets, fuel/water/materials expenses, or other unforeseen costs.

It is a one of a kind program that only survives because of the generosity of time and treasure. Neighborhood volunteers plant, hang, water, and remove the baskets every year.

Volunteer to water the baskets

Thank you for supporting this great program,
Peter Manhart
