We’re committed to helping protect the environment.

Whether it’s making the Edgebrook and Sauganash business districts bicycle-friendly, or our work on the Forest Glen Climate Toolkit, we’re here to help!

We’ve long had a vision to attract cyclists to the Edgebrook business district.  The North Branch Trail meets Devon at Caldwell, right across the street from Edgebrook. If you’re riding by, steer yourself to Edgebrook for shopping, dining and more. You’ll find charming shops, a variety of restaurants, an art center and a community garden. This map shows many of our businesses and locations of bike racks.

As the fiscal agent for the Climate Toolkit, we worked with the Field Museum to make the ideas of local scouts become reality.

Thanks to resources like a grant from Boeing Corporation, and access to the environmental experts at the Field Museum, coupled with the local kids’ creativity and terrific scout leadership, we achieved impressive results with water conservation, natural mosquito abatement and eco-friendly gardening.

More than 40 rain barrels were installed in local homes, businesses,
churches and schools to help conserve water and reduce flooding.

We have long-term vision of how the Sauganash business community can continue to do our part to make a world of difference right here at home.  Click here to check out our plans.

    2024 MLQ Application

    2024 Mary Lou Quinn Scholarship Application
    The Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer the annual 2024 Mary Lou Quinn Scholarship Award to high school seniors who reside in the 60646 zip code.

    Who was Mary Lou Quinn?  Chamber founder and longtime board member, Mary Lou Quinn was the owner of B.Q.S. Realty and a 60-year Edgebrook resident devoted to community service with the Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce, the Edgebrook Community Association, the Edgebrook Historical Society, the Edgebrook Woman’s Club, and Trees for Life.

    Most notably, the chamber has increased the amount of the scholarship this year to $3,000 thanks to the generosity of chamber members.  “We are extremely grateful to our board members, Marti Corcoran of Coldwell Banker, Al Klairmont of Imperial Realty Co., and Frank Spula of the Polish National Alliance for supporting our local high school students on the road to their futures,” said Kathy Fern, Executive Director.  “This award can really help with a new college student’s expenses.”

    A breakfast will be held to award the scholarship to the winning student and their family, and chamber members, local politicians, business owners, as well as members of the community are welcome.  See the chamber website for requirements and to apply for the scholarship.
