SVIA and Adopt-A-Kid
SVIA received a beautiful note from Rosanne Eiternick thanking the members and friends of Schorsch
Village for their generous donations to Adopt-A-Kid. All proceeds from the 2018 golf outing were donated,
along with many toys and gifts which were dropped off at the SVIA Hall by area residents. The Golf outing
donations from State Rep. Luis Arroyo, and Alderman Villegas, Alderman Sposato, and Alderman
Taliaferro, and from villagers really made all the difference.
Other Accomplishments in 2018 for SVIA:
Worked with our Alderman to collect and donate PlayDough to Lurie’s Children’s hospital.
Hosted an Educational Spring Children’s event with the help of Brookfield Zoo.
Donated money to The Lions Club Voices program. An organization that helps Children with
SVIA and Alderman Gilbert Villegas donated 35 turkeys to the local food pantry.
Collected 20 tall kitchen bags full of rugs, towels, and blankets for the Anti-Cruelty Society
working with Alderman Sposato’s office.
Donated boxes of personal hygiene items to Marillac House (part of St Vincent’s family services
org). They have a battered women’s shelter, a safe place for 11-16 year olds, several food
kitchens and food pantries within the Chicago Area.
SVIA Holiday Party

trimmings. Food was provided by ATheme

St. Patrick’s Day Party is Saturday, March 9. We
are keeping the tradition alive by cooking more than
one hundred pounds of corned beef. There are some
very extraordinary people who spend days preparing this
to serve a complete corned beef dinner for the Community.
This tradition has been going on for generations. Mark
your calendars now so you don’t miss this fabulous event.

We have many different events throughout the year.

would like us to organize it? What about a Casino Night?

ONE OF OUR OWN:
Joseph’s Finest Meat is a family owned Schorsch Village
business, established in 1977. Personally I purchased my
family Christmas Ham from Josephs’ and everyone is still
talking about it. My Mother in Law said “that was the best
ham she has ever had”. We all know how hard it is to
make the Mother in Law happy. Joseph’s for years has
provided the meat and sausage for Schorsch Village
parties, men’s club, steak night, and the best Corned Beef
for our traditional St. Patrick’s Day party. Stop in and visit
and say Hello to Ben and the gang. They are located at
7101 W. Addison. If you don’t have time to wait, call in
your order to (773) 736-3766 for pickup.
