Dear Friends and Supporters,

On behalf of the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society, I hope that you experience great joy throughout this holiday season and into 2017.  I also want to express my thanks to all who participated in making 2016 a success, helping us provide a full array of programs to enrich knowledge and appreciation of neighborhood history and strengthen relationships within the entire Rogers Park/West Ridge community. In all, hundreds of local residents and former residents took part in Society events this year, and our membership increased by more than 25%.

The popularity this year’s programs led to another important success. For the first time in many years, the Society has the opportunity to end the year with a balanced budget. We are just a little way from reaching our budget goal, so if you can possibly help out, please remember the Society in your Holiday giving.

Become a member, renew your membership, or make a tax-deductible gift. Together we can start the New Year on a strong financial footing and continue to provide fresh perspectives on our neighborhood’s past, present and future.

Your support makes it all possible. Help us make the past come alive again this year!
