Greetings Neighbors,

Have you ever attended a flag ceremony? Do you have your Memorial Day plans already in place?

The Edgebrook Community Association (ECA) is responsible for maintaining the flag located at the triangle located at Lehigh, Devon and Caldwell. This Memorial Day, Monday, May 30 at 9 AM, we will retire the existing Star and Stripes and hoist a new American flag (and then return it to half-staff) at this very triangle.

Greetings Neighbors,

Have you ever attended a flag ceremony? Do you have your Memorial Day plans already in place?

The Edgebrook Community Association (ECA) is responsible for maintaining the flag located at the triangle located at Lehigh, Devon and Caldwell. This Memorial Day, Monday, May 30 at 9 AM, we will retire the existing Star and Stripes and hoist a new American flag (and then return it to half-staff) at this very triangle. All are welcome and invited to attend this brief, 20 minute flag ceremony. Dennis Paterka (Edgebrook resident, veteran) and I will lead the flag ceremony and we welcome those in attendance to assist, as requested, with the ceremony. Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts are specifically requested to attend, in uniform, and could be called upon to assist.

The flag ceremony will pay respect to the flag of our nation, and as it will be Memorial Day we will take a moment to honor the women and men who have given the ultimate measure of devotion for our freedom. Please come prepared to speak the name, conflict and branch of service of those military members (family, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc...) you know gave their all on our behalf while serving in our Armed Forces. Once those present have spoken on behalf of those who can no longer speak for themselves, we will honor a moment of silence.

The flag ceremony will take approximately 20 minutes. Gather on the sidewalk adjacent to the flagpole.

We will also collect American flags (only) that need to be properly disposed of. Please bring them to the flag ceremony. Flags collected will be burned at a separate time.

We hope you can attend, especially if you have never seen a flag ceremony and otherwise have no plans for Memorial Day. It can be a very moving experience.

Questions? Please ask. Jac Charlier - jac.charlier@gmail.com.

Website/Blog devoted to Mayfair News?

I moved here from Hollywood (Florida) and we had a few local blogs that just talked about neighborhood stuff. Is there anything like that for Mayfair, or maybe the surrounding areas? Seems like Mayfair isn't very well known.

  • Tami - no idea, I've sent multiple messages as well all with no response...so strange.

  • Mayfair, I'm sorry. I'm not even in their area, but right next door, and love their page.

Cuba Libre- new restaurant near Elston/Lawrence?

Does anyone know if this restaurant is open? It replaced a Mexican restaurant near the corner of Elston and Lawrence. I see lights, signs... But doesn't seem open yet? Anyone know?

Public hearing on Mayfair mosque proposal delayed; civic group votes to oppose zoning project

Mosque would be located on triangular parcel surrounded on all sides by alleys, one of which backs up to row of bungalows. Group wants to work with Islamic Center to find new location. A community center on another parcel also is planned. http://nadignewspapers.com/2016/04/21/group-opposes-mosque-based-on-zoning-issues/

  • Miss Colleen Lives in Jefferson Park

    Thank you for that info. I appreciate it.

  • There was a meeting held over a year ago at Palmer School and the majority of neighbors opposed the proposed location.

Yard sign stolen/taken (Sunnyside & Kilbourn)

We had a Bernie Sanders 2016 yard sign in our front yard, near the corner of Sunnyside & Kilbourn, and now it is missing. The last time we saw it was early in the morning March 29, 2016.
It was removed and placed near a tree last Tuesday/Trash day and now it's missing this trash day - coincidence?
If you have any ideas, let us know. Otherwise, heads up - there is a sign taker in Mayfair.
