The warm weather seems to stimulate a lot of activity in and around Blue Island, IL. This is no different for the Blue Island Community Health Coalition.

From gardening activities to street fairs, BICHC members are about to get very busy!

  • The Active Living Committee is planning for an Open Streets event, the 1st ever in Blue Island. At April 2’s Monthly Coalition Meeting, the group decided to host this event on Sunday, June 8 on Greenwood Ave between 127th and Vermont. The BICHC is a proud supporter of this project! Each committee will be represented in a unique way. Stay tuned for more details.
  • Gardening & Food Access Committee Members are gearing up for spring by supporting the Memorial Park Community Garden and the California Gardens Community Garden in recruitment efforts. An upcoming fundraiser on April 16 at the Rock Island Public House will help benefit gardens in Blue Island.
