    Chicago Fire Department Chaplain To Retire After 30 Years On The Job
    STREETERVILLE - The Rev. Thomas Mulcrone plans to retire June 30 as chaplain for the Chicago Fire Department after three decades on the job. "Thirty years is more than enough time. The nights have gotten long," Mulcrone said Tuesday. Mulcrone, 65, said he didn't know why he wasn't asked to take another assignment by the Archdiocese of Chicago.

    Dennis, would it be suitable for path mulch?

  • Hello Ann,

    Yes. As you turn into North Park Village make the first left past the security hut into a small parking lot. The mulch is at the northwest corner of the parking lot.
