fire in the 1980s. The interior of Medici includes a two-story tree,
Amish-made tables, and amazing brick work. The reception will occur in

Join UPPSA & SUPA and Active Transportation at the Boulevard Tour!

On August 29th, SUPA & UPPSA will be volunteering for Active Transportation Alliance, working their lakefront tour bike ride. It will be relatively easy work, as in most likely guiding bikers or passing out water. We're doing this to help build a relationship between ourselves and Active Transportation. But not only that, if we get 15 volunteers by Friday, August 13th to commit we could get $150 dollars donated to our student groups! What a great way to help your student organization!

The Boulevard Lakefront Tour is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Active Transportation Alliance, Chicagoland’s voice for better biking, walking and transit.

To sign up and receive your free T-shirt please go to and scroll down on the first page to RSVP!
