July Updates | New Membership Cycle Begins
New SPCA Membership Cycle Begins Today
Today is the first day of the 2021-2022 SPCA membership cycle. I hope that you received our mailing. Our membership cycle runs from July 1st until June 30th. Our membership fees remain just $30 a household ($20 for seniors).
You can pay your dues by credit card online.
Or mail a check to our PO Box:
PO BOX 46174
Chicago, IL 60646-0174
We also have two upcoming events at which you can pay in-person. Your dues allow us to function. Please support your neighborhood association with your membership.
Membership Card Program
New For This Year: SPCA member households will receive two membership cards. These cards can be used to receive discounts and bonuses at local businesses. Here is an overview of those benefits:
Alarmist Brewing and Taproom – 10% off for SPCA Members
Dakota 94 – 10% off for SPCA Members
Donna’s Garden -10% off for SPCA Members
Chai Asian Bistro – Free appetizer for first-time customers (up to $6.00 in value) with order of two entrees
Sauganash Grill – 10% off for first time customers
The Learning Experience Sauganash – Enrollment Fee Waived for SPCA Members
This is our first year trying a membership card program. We thank our current partners for offering our members these discounts. We also hope to expand and improve this program in the coming years if it proves both manageable and valuable to our members and partners.
You will receive your membership cards immediately if you pay in-person at an upcoming event. Otherwise we will begin delivering membership cards to homes mid-July.
UPDATED July 4th Parade in Sauganash
The parade route has been updated. The flag raising ceremony WILL take place near Hiawatha and Forest Glen after the parade. This is where the parade traditionally ends.
The parade starts at Thorndale and Kostner at 9:30 AM. Meet us there if you want to march with us. Look for our Sauganash Park banner. I will be marching in the parade with some of our board members. The parade will end near Hiawatha and Forest Glen. The flag will be raised and there will be a few speeches. Also, we will have our SPCA booth set up at the end of the parade if you’d like to pay membership dues in-person.
SPCA Summer Kickoff Event on July 10th
The SPCA is looking forward to our Summer Kickoff Event on Saturday, July 10th from 11:00 – 3:00 PM. It will be held on Glenlake between Kedvale and Keeler. We invite all our neighbors to celebrate the summer with us.
11:00 – Start Time
12:00 – 1:30 – Face-painting
1:00 – Congressman Quigley visits
1:30 – 3:00 – Ballon Artist

We will have games and food for all our neighbors. The event will feature impromptu performances from a kilted bagpiper with the Shannon Rovers Irish Pipe Band. We are all looking forward to that!
The event is FREE FOR MEMBERS. We are asking for a $10 donation from guest families. This is also a great event to pay your dues in-person, if you’d like. We will be distributing SPCA membership cards at this event.
We hope to see you there!
