Thorndale Community Service Center
The Grand Opening of the Thorndale Community Center occurred on June 24, 2010. The owner of the vacant space at 1130 Thorndale, located west of the Thorndale El Stop, has donated it through the summer, thanks to the efforts of Harry Osterman and his staff assistant Jason Desecki. The following organizations will share the space: Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project (EESP), Artists in Motion, and the Thorndale Action Task Force. It will also serve as a meeting place for local block organizations, CAPS groups, organizers of events on Thorndale such as Furry Friends, etc. The purpose of the Thorndale Community Service Center is to:
Provide a visible and active presence in that area, and
Actively work with neighbors and community volunteers to improve Edgewater's public image, and
Expand resident's understanding on simple actions they can take that can help the environment, create a sustainable community and reduce their own costs.
