The Avondale Neighborhood Association is a 501-c3 non-profit, non-partisan organization with the mission of unifying the Avondale community by preserving history, embracing diversity, and connecting neighbors.
ANA collaborates with the community on coordinating several events a year. Some events include neighborhood clean-ups & socials, participation in community murals, and coordination of art walks, Walk/Run/Bike 5K, and the annual restaurant crawl. Additionally, ANA serves as a conduit between the Alderman and Avondale residents regarding changes in zoning and concerns in the neighborhood.
We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that represents the common interest of the community members with regard to community development, preservation of diversity, enhancement of quality of life, and safety.
Community meetings are held at St. Hyacinth Basilica Resurrection Hall – 3640 W. Wolfram Street. Meetings are on the 3rd Monday of the month at 7 p.m. – parking lot is accessible from George street.
The Avondale Neighborhood Association (ANA) continues to monitor all news relevant to the Covid-19 virus. Currently, all community meetings will be held via Zoom. Click “Community Meetings” above to be redirected for more information.
ANA is made up of volunteers who are dedicated to serving the community.
I have lived in Avondale my whole life. I have always wanted to be involved in my community and that is why I have been on the board of the neighborhood association for several years. I got involved originally thru CAPS meetings. Then some folks decided to create a neighborhood association and it grew from there.
Present up-to-date financial reports at each Board and community meeting, as well as provide a summary report at annual member retreat.
I love connecting neighbors with opportunities to engage more deeply with our community and promote our neighborhood as a welcoming community to all.
Favorite Spot in the Neighborhood: Alice's (even though I'm horrible at karaoke) or Sipping Turtle Cafe
I am a licensed Architect and have been a resident of Avondale since 2017. As Zoning Director, I act as a conduit between Aldermen, Developers, and the rest of the community to ensure the people of Avondale have a voice in new construction happening in our neighborhood. I have a strong passion for both the future development and historical preservation of Avondale and love to help educate residents in the zoning process - and how they can get more involved. Just ask me!
Fun Fact: I am an avid gardener, beekeeper, and ceramicist.
This is my second year serving as secretary for ANA. I am happy to be a part of the board and engage with the Avondale community. As secretary, I take minutes at all community and board meetings, as well as design and disseminate the monthly newsletter.

A TV series I would recommend is: The Mandalorian
I have been volunteering with the Avondale Neighborhood Association (affectionately called ANA) first as treasurer in 2017-18 and then started the Auxiliary Board. I'm also a founder of the the Avondale Chamber of Commerce. I've been a resident for close to 30 years now & I love everything about Avondale. Like every neighborhood we have had our ups and downs but whatever the future brings we want to ensure that we bring everyone with us!
