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 90 years we’ve specialized in helping children affected by orthopaedic conditions, cleft lip and palate, spinal cord injury, and rehabilitation needs. And while expertise, dedication and generosity make it all possible, we believe our hospital is fueled by love. That love is what helped the Shriners network of 22 locations treat over 127,000 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:

COMMUNITY BANKING AT ITS BEST! For most banks, success is about how many accounts they can open, how quickly they can move customers through the teller line, or how many loans they can close. We’re different than most. And, we have different measures of success. Did we do all we could to make every customer interaction a pleasant one? Are we making this community better? Are we making a difference to this area? These are lofty goals, but they are ones we’re always striving for because, as a true community bank, we know these are our responsibilities. You’ll get great financial tools when you bank with us, but we don’t stop there. We’re more than just a bank.

Chamber President Dear Neighbor, I am pleased to write this letter to you after a year of nothing but sustained growth and progress for our business communities. The Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce has helped officiate numerous groundbreaking and grand opening celebrations in what is a strong and positive foreshadowing of the year to come. As we keep progressing forward into 2016, the speculation about the new business moving into town is becoming reality, as more and more are taking notice of our burgeoning business corridor. This success is attributed to you; the residents, business owners, and leaders in our respective communities and with that, the Chamber thanks you for your loyalty and dedication. Chamber membership was at an all time high in 2015 and we hope to surpass that in 2016. As a consumer, I invite you to utilize the resources of the Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce, such as our mobile friendly website and the Community Guide to help make the decision where you will eat tonight, bank tomorrow, and shop this weekend. While supporting our local business establishments, you are helping to ensure the era of progress will continue for a long time to come. Thank you again for being the best neighbors a business could ask for, and best regards for a healthy and prosperous 2016.

Elmwood Park Village President I am pleased to report that the Elmwood Park business community remains vibrant with many new developments underway. The current economy remains stable and property values in general are strong and steadily on the rise. With that comes the promise of new businesses opening and the security that current business owners will continue to flourish. I would like to thank all our local business owners in the community and those who are members of the Chamber. Your loyalty to Elmwood Park bonds our community together and helps to ensure that our Village will continue to prosper. We have seen quite a lot of private investment in Elmwood Park in this past year. Some examples include the five luxury brick townhouses which are near completion

at 75th Avenue and Diversey. On the south side of town, four brick townhouses are also near completion at Palmer and 72nd Court. A developer just broke ground on a nineunit building on Harlem Avenue as well. These developments showcase top-quality construction and high-end finishes and will be a great addition to the neighborhood. On Grand Avenue, Elmcrest Banquets recently purchased the former Armand’s property. They will develop and improve the site for use as their parking lot, not only beautifying Grand Avenue but also enhancing safety in the area. The Village continues to invest along Grand Avenue, as well, by purchasing vacant property at both 7550 W. Grand Ave. and 7405 W. Grand Ave. The Village is requesting and evaluating proposals from parties interested in developing these sites to enhance this important business corridor. The Village’s investment in infrastructure moves forward too as we near completion of a major two-year street improvement program. This project will provide benefits

throughout the town for many years to come. And our flood mitigation project is winding down. I am pleased to see that many areas have already experienced relief from flooding after heavy rains. We continue to seek funding for a new underpass at the Grand Avenue railroad crossing. We are actively urging both our state and federal officials to fund this project to improve safety, relieve traffic congestion and boost economic development throughout the region. Our work has just begun and together with our residents and business community, we will continue to grow and improve Elmwood Park. Sincerely,

Angelo “Skip” Saviano Elmwood Park Village President

River Grove Village President This new Community Guide marks over one year since River Grove became a partner in the Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce, joining Elmwood Park and Chicago’s Mont Clare neighborhood (where I grew up). The Chamber has worked tirelessly and professionally to support the businesses in the communities they represent. I’m sure that you will find the Grand Corridor 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 desk and refer to it often. If you have not yet joined the Grand Corridor Chamber 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 like-minded 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. With the worst of the national recession behind us, we are seeing strong interest from developers and business entrepreneurs in investing capital in our communities. In the past year, many unoccupied business parcels have once again become occupied and vibrant, offering revenue and convenience to our community and employment opportunities for our residents.

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 Elmwood Park and Mont Clare communities which together make up the Grand Avenue Business Corridor. “Strength in Numbers” is the philosophy behind the creation of a multicommunity 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 you will make it a point to patronize the many area businesses listed in this directory. Sincerely,

Marilynn J. May River Grove Village President

Cook County Commissioner Dear Neighbors, I am very proud to represent Elmwood Park and River Grove on the Cook County Board. Over the years, I have seen many positive changes in the area, particularly in the commercial and business areas. New businesses enhance our community. Thatcher Woods Shopping Center, shopping plazas on North Avenue, Harlem Avenue and Grand Avenue, as well as many established businesses have always been important to our neighborhoods and to the quality of life of our residents. In order to keep our areas vibrant, it is vitally important that we all make an effort to support our local businesses whenever possible. We have a varied array of businesses that provide many valuable services, from dining, car services, banquet facilities, salon services and many others of all kinds. Please continue to patronize our local businesses, many of them owned and operated by our neighbors. Think local and support the businesses that support our community groups, schools and churches. It is an investment in our communities! Sincerely,

Peter N. Silvestri, Cook County Commissioner, 9th District
