Latest Evanston News: Your Daily Update
Evanston’s new repairs fund received 146 requests and $ 26,230 in donations, according to Deputy City Manager Kimberly Richardson.
Richardson released the figures last week at a meeting of the city council repair committee, which provided a update on funding and program applicants.
Richardson also told the committee that 29 of the 107 nominees were considered “ancestors” or black residents who lived in the city between 1919 and 1969 (the numbers were current as of September 30). This subgroup of people, so far, have been most interested in home improvement and mortgage assistance.
Dan Toomey, Michael Horvich and Barbara Myers are seasoned collectors. Unique artefacts, ubiquitous and often discarded items, little quirks, family keepsakes and handcrafted items are the treasures and lifeblood of these Evanston collectors whose creative pleasures also include organizing, exhibiting and life with their collections.
