Celebrating 25 years, Dave Frederickson - State Farm Insurance opened in Edgewater on 9/1/1996. While he's since moved a few doors down from the original office, the agency continues to be a fixture on Clark Street. Congratulations and thank you for being A Good Neighbor!

9/1/1996
I opened the door to my own business. My name on the sign next to the State Farm logo. 6305 N Clark Street in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. I had two Team members that day. One “ghosted” me after two days (before “ghosting” was a “thing!”)
Now I’ve moved a few doors south into a building that we bought and gutted
I have grown to 7 total Team members who are each amazing in their own way. We have wonderful chemistry and they are my second family
Today is my 25th anniversary and I want to pat myself and my Team on the back.
Thanks to #StateFarm for believing in me and allowing me this opportunity
Thanks to my wife and my son for having my back.
Happy anniversary to us!!

Great news from Rivendell Theatre Ensemble!

Great news from Rivendell Theatre Ensemble!

A word from Artistic Director Tara Mallen:
Welcome our new Associate Artistic Director, Denise Yvette Serna!

In January, we launched a search for a newly-crafted artistic leadership position at Rivendell, thanks in huge part to a generous donation from the 
Arts Work Fund. Over the next several months, we enjoyed an intense, invigorating and incredibly informative series of interviews that served as an introduction to so many wonderful artists that we had not previously known.

Ultimately this process led us to offer the position of Associate Artistic Director to Chicago based director, educator and theater-maker, Denise Yvette Serna.
I am thrilled to share that Denise accepted the position and we welcomed her officially at our staff meeting last week. For the past 25 years, Rivendell has been centering the stories and amplifying the voices of women. Now as we look forward to the next 25 years, with Denise’s fresh perspectives, tremendous passion, and inspiration in the mix, we will expand our artistic vision and reshape our programming.

I am delighted to welcome Denise as my new artistic partner and look forward to revisioning a future for Rivendell that is courageous, inclusive, anti-racist and reflective of women’s stories from a multiplicity of perspectives. I hope you will join us at our Blue Jean Ball on September 9th to celebrate our 25 years of making theater for the Chicago community, and allow me to introduce you all in person to this incredible artist!

Welcome Denise!

Remote Counseling Group: Google Meet December 4th, 2020 - February 12th, 2021 Fridays @ 5:00pm-6:00pm CT This has been a brutal year, and with the onset of cabin fever, cold/dark weather, and massive transtions many of us may need a extra support between December & February. To that end: Amalgam Care's brilliant, big-hearted duo will be offering a 9-week group program crafted to help us unpack everything that has happened in 2020 while laying the foundation for a better, brighter 2021. The group will work through three main topics: Inventory - What you need more of, What you need less of Connections - Getting to know yourself and others better Emotions - Managing feelings of Anger, Sadness and Gratitude Each week engages group activities designed to help you build a toolkit of resources and skills, while exploring new forms of self-care and self-empowerment. Together, we will tackle the main issues of the year, prepare for the holidays and ensure 2021 starts off on the right foot.

All month long Studio 64 is supporting the fight against cancer and you can join us! We are offering a pink hair extension for $25. Half of the proceeds will be donated to Gilda’s Club, an organization that provides social and emotional support to anyone impacted by cancer. We chose this organization because we wanted all cancers to be included not just breast cancer. My mom survived kidney cancer and a good client just passed away from cancer. All participants will receive 20% off a future visit to Studio 64. Will you join us?
Tomorrow is Saturday and Studio 64 still has appointments available! Book your appointment now online, through Facebook, on our website or call 773-312-5844
