What's new in West Chesterfield...

It's good to know that our local schools get visits from local leaders!

The pic above shows Michael LaFaruge President of the West Chesterfield Community Association, Dr. Michelle Willis Principal of Gillespie Elementary, and Toni Preckwinkle Cook County Board President posing for a pic at Gillespie.
Seasons Greetings!

Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle brought Holiday Greetings to Gillespie Elementary School at 9301 S State St., on Friday, December 14. During a surprise visit, at West Chesterfield's invite, the president congratulated the school on this year's academic improvement.

West Chesterfield brought Holiday Cheers to the Roseland Community Hospital with its delivery of bundles of Children's gifts to the Hospital on Thursday, December 13.

West Chesterfield's Alonzo Anderson and Michael LaFargue delivered one hundred (100) toys and gifts divided between Gillespie (Tech) Elementary School and the Roseland Community Hospital. West Chesterfield hosts Holiday Toy Drives annually.

Side Note:

Gillespie's relationship is budding with the West Chesterfield Community Association. In November Gillespie and WCCA agreed to collaborate on community garden development in 2013 with the assistance of West Chesterfield's Dr. Jobe Payne.
