NECA Block Party


Celebrate 75 years of NECA this summer.

Help celebrate NECA's 75th anniversary by joining our block party on Saturday, July 23rd 2PM-10PM Rain or Shine.

The party will take place on McAlpin Avenue between Hiawatha and Leoti. This will be a great opportunity to meet you new neighbors and get re-acquainted with those you haven't seen in a while. We will have activities for young and old including jumping jacks, bean bags, music and food. The food will be catered by T Baums Barbeque and will be available for purchase. Everyone is invited to what we hope will become an annual tradition in our neighborhood once again. NECA has been around for 75 years as a civic association by providing these types of events. We hope to continue this organization for many more years with your help and support.

North Edgebrook will be rocking to the sounds of the Karl Young Band. This Band was formed in 1998 when three St. Mary of the Woods seventh graders, Patrick Benson, Joe Juettner, and Nick Mungari, came together to play - Pat on drums, Nick on guitar and Joe on bass. Their first gig was out of Nancy and Don Kerstein's garage for a First Communion party. A fourth musician, Justin Wrzesinski - keyboard and vocals - was added at Notre Dame High School. Today, all have day jobs - Pat and Justin are music educators, Joe is a paralegal and Nick is in electrician school - but all are active on the music scene. Pat plays jazz, rock and big band; Nick and Joe play country and rock and Justin plays rock and lounge music. They are happy to come back to the old neighborhood as The Karl Young Band and play for friends and neighbors just for the fun of it and for "old times sake".

NECA has been around for 75 years as a civic association by providing these types of events. We hope to continue this organization for many more years with your help and support. We will need volunteers to make this a successful event. Go to our webpage, northedgebrook.org, to sign up or contact Mike Dwyer or Kathy Rodden, 773-792-2131 or ktr1017@sbcglobal.net. We have the permit from the city to block off the streets so please move your cars starting at 1PM so we can begin setting up. If you have any suggestions for an activity, let us know.
