Mayor Daley Hails the Chiefs–”Presidents, Past and Present” in the February issue of Michigan Avenue Magazine

Mayor Daley Hails the Chiefs–”Presidents, Past and Present” in the February issue of Michigan Avenue Magazine–”the most important President’s Day in our city’s history”

In the February issue of Michigan Avenue Magazine, Mayor Daley shares his thoughts on “Presidents, Past and Present.”

This is most fitting in a week when we at Eli’s prepare for our trip on Thursday to Springfield to present the Birthday Cakes that we have created for the two birthday celebrations for Lincoln; the 1860’s Period Ball at the Abraham Lincoln Museum and the Gala that will feature the attendance of our 44th President.

In Mayor Daley’s piece, he notes that this is the “most important President’s Day in our city’s history” because of Obama being the first Chicagoan to serve as President.

Mayor Daley continues that Lincoln said “a man should be proud of the city in which he lives, and that he should so live that his city will be proud that he lives in it.”

How wonderful that Eli’s Cheesecake, a family business of Chicagoans, can bring these Great Cakes to Springfield to honor our 16th President in the presence of our fellow Chicagoan, and 44th President, Barack Obama.
