See this 08-29-2016 message from a neighbor along Crispus Attucks Park:
Dear Bloomingdale Neighbors,
As fall rolls around I always notice a divergence amongst groups the neighborhood, in the CA park, etc. When I moved here it was because this was a neighborhood where a diverse group of people greeted each other warmly as they came home from church or stood outside their homes, etc. Although it still continues, I just want to remind some of us (probably not people reading this newsletter unfortunately) to greet, to say hello but more over include people on your block, some who have lived here more than 40 years, with your next bbqs, picnics. Not everyone has email, ya know? I think this is redundant to say to you guys, but
Bloomingdale is more than a place to live. It is a community where people care about one another.
Let’s keep it that way.
