Two Village of Maywood Houses of Worship Impacted by Fires

Maywood, IL: This week, two churches in the village of Maywood has been impacted by fires in their houses of worship. The fire at New Life in Christ Bible Church, located at 1642 S. 15th Avenue resulted in significant damage to the church edifice on Monday, December 26, 2022. We are thankful that there were no injuries or fatalities. Thank you to the Maywood Fire Department along with several neighboring Fire Departments who worked diligently to combat and contain this fire and ensure no other surrounding properties were damaged. The cause of the fire is still under investigation according to Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh. “We extend our support to Pastor Ronald Beamon and his congregation as they prepare to restore and rebuild,” says Mayor Nathaniel George Booker. We are grateful that they have found a temporary location to hold their worship services. On this Sunday, January 1, 2023, they will worship with the congregation of St. James Community Baptist Church, 2001 S. 15th Avenue in Broadview and starting Sunday, January 8, 2023 until further notice, services will be held at 1:00 pm at the Broadview Park District, 2600 S. 13th Avenue in Broadview.

If you would like to make a donation in support of their rebuilding efforts, the link for their GoFund Me campaign is https://gofund.me/f1e25fea

On Friday, December 30, 2022, another fire was reported at the New Rock of Ages Church, located at 400 N. 5th Avenue. According to fire personnel, the origin of the fire was in the basement and there were no fatalities or injuries reported and no other significant damage to other parts of the church. The cause of the fire is currently being investigated by the Maywood Fire Department in conjunction with the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

Both of these church buildings hold historical significance in our community, and we look forward to them continuing to provide meaningful ministry in the Village of Eternal Light for years to come. ###

Kwanzaa is a time of learning, family and celebration.

During the week of Kwanzaa, families and communities come together to share a feast, to honor the ancestors, affirm the bonds between them, and to celebrate African and African American culture. Each day they light a candle to highlight the principle of that day and to breathe meaning into the principles with various activities, such as reciting the sayings or writings of great black thinkers and writers, reciting original poetry, African drumming, and sharing a meal of African diaspora-inspired foods. The table is decorated with the essential symbols of Kwanzaa, such as the Kinara (Candle Holder), Mkeka (Mat), Muhindi (corn to represent the children), Mazao (fruit to represent the harvest), and Zawadi (gifts). One might also see the colors of the Pan-African flag, red (the struggle), black (the people), and green (the future), represented throughout the space and in the clothing worn by participants. These colors were first proclaimed to be the colors for all people of the African diaspora by Marcus Garvey.

DAY 1 - Umoja (Unity)
To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

Illinois Municipal League appoints Mayor Booker to Revenue & Taxation + Public Works & Transportation Policy Committees
Mayor Booker serves both committees as representative for West Cook County Region

Since 1913, Illinois Municipal League (IML) has served Illinois municipalities as the nonprofit, nonpolitical association of cities, villages and incorporated towns. IML is the statewide, community-focused advocacy and educational organization giving municipalities a powerful presence and voice in our state and national capitols. During the IML Board of Directors, Winter meeting, appointments were made to the six policy committees. As the statewide representative of the 1,295 municipalities in Illinois, IML conducts meetings to discuss and consider legislative proposals submitted by municipal officials from throughout the state. “IML committees are a key element in the success of the League. By serving on these committees, you are enhancing the role and impact of the work we do on behalf of communities across the state”, said IML Executive Director, Brad Cole.

This year’s agenda builds on IML’s core values to promote local decision making; preserve home rule authority; oppose unfunded mandates; preserve the right of municipalities to decide employee wages and benefits; and, protect state-shared revenues. IML Board President and Village of River Forest, Mayor Cathy Adduci added, “Mayor Booker has been an advocate for exploring ways to address our taxes and potential new revenue streams that could lessen the burden of residents and businesses. He is also engaged on a national level serving on the Board of Directors for National League of Cities focusing on infrastructure projects and planning. We look forward to him serving as a great asset to our region and state”.

“I am honored to serve on these important policy committees that will aide in navigating even more during this once in a lifetime experience of the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act,” said Village of Maywood, Mayor Nathaniel George Booker. “With Maywood being the highest taxed community in the West Suburbs of Cook County, my prayer is that our work will guide future legislative changes bringing about new revenue sources that will positively impact us, our region, and State of Illinois overall.” It is critical that municipal and state officials work cooperatively to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of their shared constituencies. IML looks forward to partnering with the General Assembly and all other interested parties in order to better serve the cities, villages and towns in Illinois.

Congratulations🏈🏆

Juneteenth 2022 we kicked off our Innaugral West Villages Juneteenth Parade in amazing unity!

Village of Maywood Mayor Nathaniel George Booker, Village of Forest Park, Mayor Rory Hoskins - Forest Park, Village of Oak Park, Illinois Oak Park Village President - Vicki Scaman, Village of Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson, Village of River Forest Mayor Cathy Adduci, Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey, Village of Riverside, Mayor Joseph Ballerine, Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi, Commissioner Brandon Johnson, Majority Leader State Senator Kimberly A. Lightford, Congressman Danny K. Davis and so many more came together for a beautiful day.

We celebrate and remember ! Although it is now being recognized as a national holiday for a second year, we must never lose sight of the true essence of this pivotal day that enslaved Black people in Texas were notified of their freedom two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

As we remember our ancestors’ journey to liberation, let it compel us to continue the use of social action to work against modern forms of oppression through the prison, economic, and legislative systems that stand as barriers of entry and tools of disenfranchisement in the lives of African Americans today.

Celebrate and gather remembering the dual reality of joy on this day but also the heavy truths of what was endured before and after.

Village of Forest Park, Village of Oak Park, Illinois, Village of River Forest Village of Maywood combined to celebrate Juneteenth on Saturday, June 18, with a parade that ended at Maywood's historic Proviso East High School. Maywood DHSEM command staff and officers were on the scene providing traffic control and communications with Village of Maywood Police Department and Maywood Fire Department

I would like to thank the Village of Maywood Public Works Department all those who are still diligently working to clean up from the storm.

IEMA is currently working with Cook County to determine, through local city damage assessment information, if there is enough damage.

Any other potential FEMA request will be determined once the local final damage assessment information is received and reviewed by IEMA. The damage assessment info is to be turned in to IEMA by COB on June 21, 2022, for review.
