Taste of Park Manor TODAY

Location: 8320 S King Dr, Chicago, IL 60619, USA
Park Manor Christian Church is holding another summer festival on their property at 84th & King Drive, TODAY, from 10am -6pm. (This is in addition to their church at 600 East 73rd Street, Chicago, IL 60619, which would explain why Taste of Park Manor is being held in Chatham)

They have gone through many troubles over the years, including a fire that destroyed the property at King, as well as losing their pastor, James Demus, last year.

With the heat, I wonder how many will be able to attend.  While they have recently gained a new interim pastor, Crystal Chinn, according to their new Facebook page, it may be some time before they can realize their dream of a new sanctuary/day care/community center (if ever).

In the meantime, area organizations should consider connecting with Park Manor to share in sponsoring the festival.  There is plenty of room for parking.

Also, would anyone know the possibility of getting funds for a temporary community garden in the summer and/or an ice rink the winter?

  1. The possibility of getting funds for other uses is very possible. There are grants out there for at least the garden. I think that its a matter of people getting together and also if the church is interested. The Alderman has a non affiliated beautification/conservation committee and i think they could get this off the ground.

    As far the skating, that has been done by Chicago Park District and I don't see that happening in the near future based off the information I received at the preliminary budget meeting. I will have a post on the state of our parks in the next couple of days.
