Do you want to do your part to reduce, reuse and recycle? Ask yourself: Do I really need this? Before you buy:
Don’t forget to save items for our Garage Sale on October 24th when you are
cleaning out your closet.
There will be a collection of hazardous waste, electronics and light bulbs at Beverly Unitarian Church, the Castle at 103rd & Longwood, on Saturday, November 7 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am. They will take things you should not be throwing in your regular trash container.
We will continue to collect pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House. The pop tabs are recycled through United Scrap Metal and RMH receives the market value plus a matching donation from United Scrap. Bring your pop tabs to any general meeting.
Anyone saving stamps for the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart, should also bring them to a general meeting. Look for more conservation ideas next month.

Ways and Means
Please invite friends, family and neighbors to support our event by
contributing items for the sale, as well as shopping with us on Saturday,
Last year's very generous donations generated $1300+ in sales, all of which
was presented to the LCM Breast Cancer Center. This year's proceeds will
directly benefit the Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry. So mark your calendars and
plan to be a part of the fun, rain or shine. All Saturday volunteers will share
in breakfast goodies and lots of camaraderie as we try to merchandise and sell
all our castaways.
Make A Difference Day Garage Sale, Saturday, October 24, 8 AM - 1 PM, at Lisa
Spolarich's. 10640 S. Seeley Ave. (Thank you for hosting Lisa) Drop off all your
items in her garage the prior week. The garage door will be left open so you can
lift it easily and deposit your items inside. (Try to price your items at
reasonable prices, prior to dropping them off.) Call Jean, 773/239-2633 if you
need help getting any large or heavy items to Lisa's.
Check your calendars and plan to sign up for one or more volunteer positions at the October 7 meeting. We need you:
At the October meeting we'll have flyers for you to disperse in the
neighborhood venues you frequent. Some ideal places for flyer placement are
coffee shops, libraries, fitness centers, churches and schools, hair salons,
restaurants, convenient stores and local parks. Send reminders to friends via
email too. Watch for our announcement in the October Villager and upcoming
Beverly Review issues. If anyone has a Beverly Review Classified Word Ad
Coupon they're not using, please give it to Jean at the October Meeting so a
free garage sale ad can be placed.
Once again Juniors will be selling Holiday Swags, Wreaths and Garlands. Photograph brochures and gift order forms will be available at the October meeting. For anyone unfamiliar with these products, be sure to ask a member about the high quality of the items they've purchased in the past. General order forms and pricing information are attached to this newsletter. All orders and payments are due at the November 4 meeting. Evergreen Industries has confirmed the delivery date of December 1 - 3, and Denice Heeney, 9132 S. Bell, will make her garage available for the delivery and pick up. Now's the time to begin to think about your holiday needs.
And last, but certainly not least, mark your calendars for our
biggest fundraiser, Breakfast with Santa, Saturday, December 12, 8 AM - 11 AM,
at Trinity United Methodist Church, 9848 S. Winchester. Please make it a must to
attend the November 4th meeting for opportunities to volunteer and to purchase
