2020 Annual Membership Meeting
Dear Bickerdike Member:
There’s No Place Like Home. For many of us, these words make us think of Dorothy repeating the phrase, clicking together the heels of her glittery red shoes, as Glinda the good witch casts a spell to help her return home. We all understood her desire to return because we all long for the comfort and security that a stable home provides. As an organization, Bickerdike understands this too, and we commemorated this in the form of a mural that was installed in Humboldt Park at the corner of Humboldt and Wabansia, the site where L. Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz.
Your membership tells us that you also understand the importance of home. With your support, we’ve continued our work in the midst of a global pandemic that has affected the stability of home for so many. We closed financing and began the renovation of the 107 units that make up Victory Apartments. We also closed financing and began construction on Emmett Street Apartments, an exciting transit-oriented development consisting of 100 affordable units that is just steps away from the Logan Square Blue Line station.
We thank you for your continued membership and share with you that it’s time again for Bickerdike’s Annual Membership Meeting. You will be receiving a formal invitation with details soon, but in the meantime please save the morning of Saturday, December 5, 2020 for this important event!
There’s much more to be done, and we need your help. Our membership is an important part of our mission and structure and as a member, you have the opportunity to have your voice heard again at our Annual Meeting by participating in the election of our Board of Directors.
