Join the ECA or Renew your Membership Today

Without your support, the ECA’s mission of building community would fail. Help us continue this tradition by joining or renewing your membership now.

We are only as strong as our members allow us to be.

Wednesday, March 21, 6:30 – 7:45 PM • Edgebrook Branch Library, 5331 W Devon, 2nd Floor Community Room

Join us for an interactive presentation on the state of the media and particularly the Chicago news ecosystem, led by Susy Schultz.

Journalism is written into the constitution, yet what does that mean?

  • What is news?
  • What is “fake” and what is real?
  • Is social media dismantling our whole delivery of information?

Schultz is president of Public Narrative, a nonprofit which teaches storytelling to people in nonprofits as well as journalists.

This presentation is brought to you by the Edgebrook Community Association and its wonderful members.

Saturday, March 24, 2-3:00 PM • Edgebrook Branch Library, 2nd Floor Community Room

ECA Egg Hunt

Saturday, March 31, 10:00 AM • Jeff Green “Choo Choo” Park, Algonquin & Tahoma

Don’t miss the ECA’s Annual Egg Hunt at Jeff Green “Choo Choo” Park (6500 N. Algonquin and Tahoma), Saturday, March 31 at 10 am.

Rain or shine, grass or snow, the Hunt starts at 10 am SHARP!

Children, ages 0-9, are invited to hunt for colorful eggs filled with tasty treats. One lucky child in each age category will unearth a golden “egg” entitling them to a prize at the ECA booth.

Don’t forget your camera.

Capture the egg hunting frenzy (blink and you’ll miss it) and take your children’s photos with the ECA Easter Bunny. Mingle with your neighbors and welcome spring to the neighborhood.

A special treat for ECA members

Children of ECA members will receive, while supplies last, a members-only egg with a commemorative item celebrating the event.
