In reading my Blog, there is no doubt of our committment to Chicago and to
education. From Wright College, to Vaughn High School to the Chicago High School
for Agricultural Sciences, these are all Chicago institutions with which we have
great partnerships.

In no way though is our support of education limited to the City of Chicago.
As it turns out, our neighboring community right across the street from us is
the Village of Harwood Heights and west of that, the Village of Norridge. The
high school that serves these communities is Ridgewood High School, located at
7500 West Montrose.

For a number of years, the Ridgewood High School Art Club, under the
leadership of art teacher, Sarah Machaj, has come to hand decorate our Eli’s
Cheesecake Cafe windows. We were delighted to be visited by the Art Club
yesterday and thank them for their great Halloween creations. It adds a special
touch for our Spooktacular and for all of our Cafe events. Thanks again to the Ridgewood High School Art Club and to Ms. Machaj.
