Hello!

I would like to make an announcement that we will
have an ”OPEN HOUSE” to pay respect to Timothy A. Polke who contributed his time to SDC.

Open House: Friday: Jan 6th at 3pm- 9pm
Address: 7050 W Belmont Ave
Chicago, IL 60634

Update from Ed: SDC Open House is for families and friends. It is a place to socialize and gather instead of at the funeral home that may be crowded and to allow others to visit Tim.

This is also Tim's wish for his families and friends to know he cherished Swoboda Deaf Center.

The funeral is on Saturday, January 7th. All the information on the funeral home website remains the same.

Thank you.
