West Ridge Bungalow Neighbors
West Ridge Bungalows Neighbors is a neighborhood group formed in late 2003 to promote the appreciation, preservation, and restoration of historic Chicago bungalows and the ?bungalow lifestyle? these homes afford city residents. While many of the WRBNeighbors are bungalow dwellers, all residents of the West Ridge and West Rogers Park neighborhoods are welcome to join.
Our meetings, held on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month, are free and open to the public. Please join us at one of our upcoming meetings, held at 7:00 p.m. at the Northtown Public Library, 6435 N. California Avenue (just north of Devon), unless otherwise specified.
For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jo at 773 . 743 . 4386.
