KD9BYW and a few volunteers (non-hams) aided the cause with clean up at the Portage. You can see more pictures in our Events Gallery.

For those interested in helping out, some members of the Club will be attending these on-going clean ups at the Portage every last Saturday of the month. If you are interesting in helping, just show up at the Chicago Portage National Historic Site (4800 S. Harlem - west side of the street) around 8:00 am, and you will be happily put to work.
