For the third consecutive year, LCA’s organizational branding was also honored, this year winning an Award of Excellence in the Campaigns, Programs & Plans category for the Putting Our Heart Into Everything We Do campaign.
LCA was awarded another 2019 Award of Excellence in the Writing — Speech and Script Writing category for a speech, The Neighborhood Looks to the Future, written and delivered by LCA President Kenneth Dotson for the May 2017 groundbreaking ceremony for The Lincoln Common, a mixed-use development on the former Children’s Memorial Hospital property in Lincoln Park.

Fire Station Park Wins 3rd Excellence in Gardening Award
For the third consecutive year, Fire Station Park & Gardens was honored with a Chicago Excellence in Gardening Award becoming one of only five parks in the city to have been honored in each of the three years since the inception of the awards. The 2019 competition featured gardens and gardeners from 43 wards and 76 neighborhoods. (See full list of 2019 winners).
This year, Fire Station Park had to overcome a late planting schedule due to cold, snow and rain. Despite the shortened growing season, however, more than 150 hours of volunteer time was logged in the park this year.
Fire Station Park's 2019 award, which came in the Community Gardens: Specialized Garden category, was presented to LCA at a ceremony held on Saturday, October 12th at Austin Town Hall. (Pictured here left to right are garden volunteers Donna Bergmark, Sally Bachrach, and LCA Board member Sally Drucker, LCA's project lead at Fire Station Park.)
LCA President Kenneth Dotson said, "Congratulations to Sally, in particular, whose vision and leadership of the park has brought this wonderful achievement to LCA."
