The SPCA is happy to host our annual Holiday Decorating Contest for 2020.
This year, instead of asking for donations from local restaurants, we are buying gift cards from them. We are supporting those who have helped us in the past. We are also supporting establishments that are new to our neighborhood.

To make this year the best year yet for our contest, we are awarding more winners than ever before.
Make sure that you have renewed your SPCA membership for the 2020-2021 cycle. Only current SPCA members are eligible to win.

The Sounds newspaper is accepting “Grad Ads” for Saturday’s issue (June 20th) if you provide the photo and the message by 5:00 PM tomorrow (June 16th).
You may have seen the Grad Ads in the June 6th issue of The Sounds and wished you had placed one for your grad. Now you have the opportunity if you act fast.
Several families from Sauganash Park are placing ads for their grads. Join in the fun.
Grad Ads are 3” x 6” and include a photo of your grad. Cap and gown optional. The text includes the grad’s name, a congratulatory message, where they are graduating from and, optionally, where they are headed. The ads generally end with “Love”, “With love”, “All our love” from the family (Dad, mom, sisters, brothers).
If you’re interested, send a photo and your message to [email protected] . The cost of a grad ad is $22 and you pay online on The Sounds website on the donation page. Select the graduation ad option.
The Sauganash Park Community Association is organizing a celebration for our neighborhood graduates. We ask that all our neighbors come outside and help us celebrate on June 14th at 1 PM.
If you have a graduate in your home, we will tie a balloon to your porch on the day of the celebration. This will indicate your graduate’s status. Just sign up here and let us know.
We will have a music truck provided by WiFi Firetruck. We will also have photography services covering the entire event provided by DejaViewsUSA. Photos will later be posted on this website.
Here is a map of the route that the truck will take on the day of the event. We hope to post a Google map showing the location of the truck on this page if we can. Check back on Sunday, June 14th between 1 and 3.
We are also offering professional photography services for graduates and their families. This unique offering is called PORchTRAITS. If you have a graduate in your home, you can request PORchTRAITS. Photos will be taken outdoors at your home. The photographer will follow CDC guidelines for social distancing. The only cost to you is a $40 or greater donation to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. After you make your donation, you are eligible for the PORchTRAITS service and can sign up here.
