ABOUT THE CHAMBER OUR MISSION STATEMENT The role of the Bensenville Chamber of Commerce shall be to encourage businesses to work together for their collective best interests and that of the Bensenville community and to continue to project a positive image for the Village of Bensenville. The Bensenville Chamber of Commerce has a motto: IN Business FOR Business. Our members and our board of directors work diligently to live up to that motto. We continue to add new members and now have record levels of membership. We welcome and support new businesses with ribbon cuttings and grand openings. We have hosted numerous local and multi-chamber networking events so that our members can showcase their business, products and services to a wide audience. Bensenville stands at the crossroads of American business. Our proximity to air, train and trucking facilities gives businesses access to expanding markets. We have developed regional collaborative relationships with other chambers and have hosted joint functions, lunches, seminars and networking events with the Franklin Park, Schiller Park, River Grove, DesPlaines, Rosemont, Villa Park, Melrose Park, Addison and Wood Dale chambers. Thanks to our partnerships, and our co-operative working relationships with other villages, chambers

and agencies, we are expanding opportunities for our members. Businesses need customers. By expanding our reach, we are expanding the marketplace; we want that to translate into increased market share and profitability for our members. Bensenville also stands at the crossroads of change. The construction of the Elgin-O’ Hare Western Access will bring unprecedented opportunity to our region. We want our members to be fully informed of those opportunities and, be poised to take advantage of this gateway to new markets, goods and customers. We also work closely with our partners in county and state government. We want our businesses to have the most updated information on new programs, new regulations and new opportunities. The Chamber has been aggressive in our outreach to our business communities. We have offered participation in seminars, forums and open houses, covering everything from the Affordable Care Act, state grants for worker training and low cost business loans. This year we will continue that outreach with more networking opportunities, business-to-business expos, a regional job fair and new series of targeted business roundtables. If you are not already a member of this dynamic organization, call (630) 860-3800 for more information or visit our website at ■

As the neighbor of O’Hare International Airport, positioned at the hub of the nation’s rail and highway network, no one can match Bensenville’s geographic advantages for logistics, distribution, warehousing and manufacturing.

The expansion of the Elgin-O’Hare Western Access will increase opportunities for every business segment. The corridor along the highway will include corporate headquarters, technology businesses and back-office operations.

BENSENVILLE WALK-IN CLINICS Residents of Bensenville and surrounding communities have a new walk-in clinic to consider when they have a minor illness or injury, need routine immunizations or require a basic physical. Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare has opened a walk-in clinics inside the new Jewel-Osco store at 1127 S. York Road, Bensenville. It is one of nine facilities around the suburbs. Walk-in clinic services are provided by board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants. These clinics accept most insurances and also offer a selfpay option. This is a more affordable option for basic medical care than an immediate care clinic or an emergency room. No appointment is necessary and wait times are usually very short. The clinics are designed to treat common, nonlifethreatening conditions like upper respiratory infections, coughs, flu, ear infections, pink eye and

bladder infections in patients 18 months and older. They also offer tuberculosis tests, blood pressure checks and routine physicals. “While the clinics are located within Jewel-Osco, they are owned and managed by Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare,” said Ann Skoglund, manager of the Edward-Elmhurst Walk-in Clinics.“Therefore, if the practitioners encounter an ailment or injury that is beyond their scope, they are easily able to refer the patient to the most appropriate level of care within the health care system.” Those who do not speak English should consider bringing a friend or family member who can interpret for them because clinic staff is not bi-lingual, Skoglund noted. Registration forms in both Spanish and Polish will be available. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays. For a complete list of walk-in clinic services and wait times at each location, visit ■

Bensenville’s history began as a dairy farm community during the days of Illinois 19th century growth. In 1884 the Village of Bensenville was incorporated in response to the need for a local school system. Many place names in the community reflect the Native American heritage that preceded other settlers, and to this day the community retain some of the Potawatomi influences. As the railroad moved into Bensenville, residential neighborhoods gave way to a downtown business district and eventually one of the largest industrial parks in the state, spurred by O’Hare International Airport growth in the 1950s and 60s. Population increases brought diversity and modern businesses into the community, but Bensenville retained its small-town feel through a strong network of activities for youth, thriving schools and parks, new library and park district facilities, and eventually state-of-the-art elementary school buildings. The Bensenville Historical Society, in partnership with the Bensenville Community Public Library, owns and

operates the Korthauer Living History Museum, an 1844 log house that was built by one of Bensenville’s founding families. Located between the library and the park district facilities, the log house provides living history experiences for school children, scout groups and open house programs throughout the summer months. The Historical Society also maintains a collection of artifacts, photographs and documents, housed at the library. The Bensenville Arts Council, the first-of-its-kind interagency cultural arts organization, was founded in 1981 and bring arts experiences to all ages in the community. Supported by the Village of Bensenville, Bensenville Park District, Bensenville Community Public Library, Bensenville Elementary School District 2 and Fenton Community High School District 100, the arts council sponsors year-round activities including a Big Band concert, Fun Arts Days, artists-inresidence, preschool entertainment, Fall Fest, Holiday Open House and the Young Musician’s Mentor Band, to name just a few. ■
