On Saturday, May 11, newly elected state Representative Chris Welch will hold a town meeting in River Forest. This will be an opportunity for residents to learn about the political comings and goings at our state capital. Residents will also have a chance to ask questions and to voice their concerns about state and local affairs. They will learn about an upcoming health fair, job fair, and a one-day recycling and shredding program. The town meeting will be held at the River Forest Public Library, 735 Lathrop Ave., between the hours of 1 and 2:30 pm. Due to limited seating, an early arrival is suggested.
