PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

River Grove

O

n behalf of the Village of River Grove, I want to commend the “Chamber by O’Hare,” comprised of the villages of Franklin Park, Schiller Park, and, now, River Grove. This group works tirelessly and professionally to support the businesses in the communities they represent. I’m sure that you will find this Chamber of Commerce Community Guide to be a handy resource for quickly finding the many nearby businesses, services, and organizations that are available to you. I recommend that you keep this directory close to your phone and refer to it often. If you have not yet joined the Chamber by O’Hare as a member, I urge you to do so soon. In addition to this Community Guide, the Chamber hosts an excellent, up-to-date website which both informs and promotes the members of the Chamber as well as the residents of our communities. The Chamber frequently hosts evening networking events where likeminded business entrepreneurs can meet to both socialize and share ideas for expanding their customer base. River Grove residents and business owners already know that our town is a town filled with character, holding on dearly to our long history as Leyden Township’s oldest incorporated village. The result is a community with an unmistakable and genuine small town charm. At the same time, River Grove has laid the groundwork to capitalize on strong development opportunities. Until recently, the national recession severely limited

the ability to expand existing businesses and start new ones. This past year, I’m pleased to say, the worst of that situation has passed. Banks are once again making business loans, residential and commercial construction sites are popping up everywhere, and there is a renewed willingness to invest in our communities. This is a perfect opportunity for municipalities to eliminate the many vacant storefronts and business properties that have plagued us for so long. New businesses bring new customer traffic which is a benefit to ALL businesses, both new and existing. River Grove is pleased to be partnering with the Franklin Park and Schiller Park communities as a part of the Chamber by O’Hare. “Strength in numbers” is the philosophy behind the creation of a multi-community Chamber of Commerce. By sharing our resources and ideas, we can accomplish so much more than by “going it alone” which, once again, is a great reason for you to become a member of the Chamber. Shopping locally not only benefits our local retailers and service providers, it also reaps rewards for our local residents. I hope that you will make it a point to patronize the many area businesses listed in this directory. Sincerely, Marilynn J. May River Grove Village President

But, you can still shop locally by patronizing our neighboring community businesses for those things you can’t find in your hometown. Thisistheconceptofthemulti-communityChamber of Commerce.

At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago, our mission is simple: deliver world-class care to children who need it most – whether their families can afford it or not. For over 85 years we’ve specialized in helping children affected by spinal cord injury, orthopaedic conditions, and cleft lip and palate. And while expertise, dedication and generosity make it all possible, ultimately we believe our hospital is fueled by love. That love is what helped the Shriners health care network of 22 locations treat more than 124,000 children last year alone, helping them at every step as they made the journey from patients back to kids.

We’re in your neighborhood. If you know a child who needs expert specialty care, call: Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago
