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.

Aldermanic Forum Scheduled for March 27th
The SPCA and 7 other civics from the 39th Ward will host an aldermanic candidate forum on Wednesday, March 27th from 7:00 – 8:00 PM at Peterson School.
Many voters who backed Casey Smagala and Joe Duplechin are now interested in learning more about Samantha Nugent and Robert Murphy. You too can learn more about these great candidates prior to voting on Tuesday, April 2nd.
Learn more about the event on Facebook or submit a question for the candidates here.
We hope to see you there.
Last night at the 1711/12 beat meeting, Police Commander Pontecore agreed to work with us in using a surveillance tree.
If you have cameras on the outside of your home, or a video doorbell, you can join this list. Then, if a crime occurs near your home, police may ask if you’d be willing to share your footage. In this way, you can really assist our officers.
This is a very smart way to connect our isolated systems and create a better surveillance network over our neighborhood that is more useful to the police. We know they are overworked. Let’s help them in the ways that we can.
Please join our E-Neighborhood Watch.
We are reaching out to our members to hear your attitudes and ideas about crime and safety in the SPCA. Completing this survey will help us establish our community priorities moving forward.
The Sauganash Park Community Association regrets to inform you that our Former Board Chairman, Former Association President, and Current Board member Bruno Cassettari has passed away.
Bruno was always generous with his time and worked hard to make Sauganash Park a better place for us to live.
He will be missed but his contributions will continue to benefit us in the future.
Funeral Arrangements are pending and will be posted here as they become available.
Rest In Peace, Bruno.
