More Cloth Masks Available At City Hall Next Week

Thanks again to Wanda Wagner for donating her time and creativity to make cloth masks for our residents.  Wanda previously donated two bags of cloth masks that Clerk Catizone helped distribute.  Due to the demand and Wanda’s generosity, she is making more.  If anyone else is sewing cloth masks that they might be willing to donate, please call our city hall at 708.598-4800.  Our residents are most appreciative!
