    I wish I had known that there was an Elmhurst neighborhood group when I lived in Elmhurst. When did it get started?

    Jim, I have the same question. I own properties in Elmhurst and have never heard of this group. So they are either not doing allot of good or are not very well organized. Either way its a shame. If someone who is a member of the Friends of Elmhurst reads this please contact me at

    You can get on their mailing list by email Apparently, there’s also another group that’s made of defectors from Friends of Elmhurst called Elmhurst Clean and Green. I asked someone involved with them to get me on their email list, but I haven’t been added. He mentioned they do a lot more for the neighborhood than Friends of Elmhurst, but I have yet to be at a meeting for either (hadn’t had a chance to make it to a Friends of Elmhurst meeting).

    Anyway, what’s the deal with the neighborhood cleanup? March is almost over and I have not heard anything about it (which could go along with what I heard about the group doing a lot of talking, but not taking a lot of action).

    I’m going to try to make it to the April meeting. I think meetings are now held on the second Tuesday of each month.
