RNA Committee Meet and Greet!

The Ravenswood Neighbors Association invites you to come meet our current comittee members and volunteers who work year round on projects to bring our neighbors together.

We will be at O’Shaughnessy’s Public House from 7:00-8:30pm for a casual drink and conversation about what we do and how you can help out by serving on one of our committees. Serving on a committee involves a variety of activities to help plan and organize our anual events, help beautify our community through gardening and clean up and providing feedback on developments in our neighborhood.

The Ravenswood Neighbors Association is a resident-driven organization that seeks to promote the well-being, safety, vitality, and identity of our community by fostering and encouraging stronger relationships between residents, local businesses, and other neighborhood organizations; sharing news and information throughout our network; and promoting local initiatives and programs.

We represent the neighborhood in Chicago bounded by Lawrence, Ashland, Montrose, and Damen Avenues.

The more the merrier! We hope to see you there
