Save the Date!

Mark your calendars for our two big events in September.
Movie Night in Barrie Park will be held on Friday Sept. 9, in conjunction with Irving School and the Park District. We’ll have a pizza party starting in the late afternoon, then show a movie at dusk.

The next day, Saturday the 10th, is our annual Barrie Fest, starting at noon. We’re still working on the agenda — feel free to email with suggestions. We will definitely have bands, a business fair, bounce houses and other entertainment.

Stay tuned for more details.

SEOPCO’s 2016 Membership Campaign

Dear Friends and Neighbors of South East Oak Park,

Over the last 14 years, South East Oak Park has become a vibrant, diverse neighborhood. We have a strong elementary school with a great reputation, and many new neighbors who have joined our community to live and raise their families.

This year we are again conducting our annual membership drive and inviting friends and neighbors to help us fund events and activities within our community. Your investment in our organization and community will go a long way toward funding our events and helping to increase awareness of Southeast Oak Park.

In 2016, SEOPCO is planning events we hope you will enjoy. We intend to collaborate with the Irving School PTO and the Park District of Oak Park to host Movie Night in Barrie Park. Our annual Barrie Fest will also be back for a 12th year and will feature local live entertainment, bounce houses, a business and organization fair, and much more. We also intend to keep the community informed on issues around the reconstruction of I-290.

Our suggested household annual membership is just $20. Please take a moment to donate by clicking on the “Contribute” tab. Or you can mail a check to SEOPCO, P.O. Box 1722, Oak Park, IL 60304.

Thanks for your support. On behalf of the SEOPCO board thank you all that you do for our neighborhood!
