Block Party of the Year Award
In August 2015, the Parent Leaders Uniting Schools (PLUS) group organized a highly successful block party in the 4900 block of Hull Street in Skokie and is being honored by the Village’s Human Relations Commission for its efforts. The block party was one of the first held in an area of the community with a concentration of multi-family buildings. The food, activities and special guests drew neighbors together for a fun-filled afternoon with the opportunity to get to know one another and build a strong sense of community.
