BARGE Neighbors, We have 4 events slated for the remainder of the year. Please mark your calendars.
A long-time Edgewater resident Jerry Stern, passed away on Tuesday June 26. Jerry, with his signature handlebar mustache, was a man with style who loved to laugh, tell jokes and entertain neighborhood tots with his stock magic tricks. He was born and raised in our neighborhood and had a deep love for Chicago, his Victorian home, which he furnished in grand style. He was a great athelete and a person who would jump at the chance of helping out a neighbor, friend, or even a stranger. We will miss him. Thanks for all the great years!
