Village of Maywood...on Day 3 of 12 Elements of a Healthy Community we focus on COMMUNITY SAFETY Exodus 14:19-25 - And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: and it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, and took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians. ‘ Zechariah 2:4-5 - 'and said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Isaiah 60:18 - 'Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

Thank you to the village who had the streets cleaning going since yesterday ! Streets are nice and cleaned!
Dear Fellow Maywoodians, Suburban Cook County positivity rate has jumped from 7.8% to 14.8% in one week! At the beginning of December, the positivity rate was 3.3%. This week 71 and this month there have been 294 more deaths in Suburban Cook County Government which brings the death total to 5,198. In just 14 days the Village of Maywood has seen as increase of positive confirmed cases jump to 240%! In just 14 days there have been 392 more positive cases confirmed in Maywood. Since last week we have experienced an additional COVID-19 related death. Our death total from COVID-19 is now 54 which is amongst the highest in Suburban Cook County. The Village of Maywood with a rate of 49.2% is the only community in the Proviso Township with a less than 50% completely vaccinated rate. Effective January 3, any individual age five and older will be required to show proof of full vaccination to dine indoors, visit gyms, or enjoy entertainment venues where food or drink are being served in Cook County. To read the full MANDATE ORDER OF THE Cook County Department of Public Health visit bit.ly/CC-COVID-2021-11 Per Executive Order as Village President, I declare that open and closed meetings with a quorum of the Village Board members and a quorum of the other Village boards, committees and commissions physically present is not practical, prudent or appropriate due to the health concerns associated with the Emergency. To read the full EXECUTIVE ORDER OF THE VILLAGE OF MAYWOOD FOR REMOTE MEETINGS visit bit.ly/maywood-eo-2021-02 Since COVID-19 was first announced, I have worked and partnered with various agencies to combat the virus. Thanks to organizations like COVID Equity Response Collaborative: Loyola and Proviso Leyden Council for Community Action, Inc - PLCCA, along with others testing, vaccinations, and booster shots have been readily available in our community. As a community and as a country, we will get through this together. Children 5 years and older are part of the COVID-19 "chain of transmission." The more people who are vaccinated, the less transmission will be happening in any community, and there are less opportunities for the virus to mutate. If you would like to learn more about and/or receive a vaccination or booster please visit www.cercl.org/resources or call 708-316-8882. Stay Safe, Stay Informed, Happy New Year! Nathaniel George Booker, Mayor Village of Maywood
During my time as an elected official, I met and spoke with Former Trustee Ronald Rivers on several occasions. Most recently we met and discussed the need for the Village of Maywood to do more for our Military Veterans. I have started the work he charged me with and look forward to honoring his memory as we roll out new initiatives Trustee River pushed for to be accomplished. Thank you for challenging me to be the best community advocate I can be in Moving Maywood Forward.

Operation Young Santa at the Maywood Park District was phenomenal!!! A young man named Dereon Plyes launched Operation Young Santa 5 years ago with preparing essential needs for 50. Yesterday with the help of friends, AlphaQuest, and members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Rho Zeta Lambda Chapter, Dereon was able to pack 600 bags with special notes of encouragement in each bag. His mother Keyonda couldn't be more proud. The bags will go to those in need throughout the Village of Maywood and Westside of City of Chicago. #UnityInOurCommunity #MAYWOODTOGETHER #MovingMaywoodForwardTogether #OperationYoungSanta
