Award winner is also honored at the Annual Independence Day Children's Bike Parade in Oriole Park (see pictures of last year's winners below). Registration is open now! Deadline is April 15, 2019.

We hold bi-monthly public meetings, usually in the Oriole Park field house. We host invited speakers, sponsor Oriole Park's annual 4th of July parade, sponsor tax appeal seminars. We work closely with 41st Ward Alderman Anthony Napolitano and the City of Chicago to make infrastructure improvements and zoning decisions as part of the 41st Ward Zoning Advisory Committee. OPCC is an important link to community institutions, local schools, churches, library, park, police and fire fighters.
