2022 Goals
 

Donor Leaf  Wall

We plan to construct an additional Donor Leaf Wall, across from the fitness room, which will expand on the theme of leaves.

Vegetable Gardens

We plan to build on last year's successful gardens by creating four additional vegetable garden beds and installing a new water irrigation system. We will continue our community outreach and partnerships with Evanston Grows, Garden Club of Evanston and the City of Evanston.

Free Programming

We will continue to offer our free programs and concerts: Levy Lectures, Levy Longevity Series, Jamming Jean and Fran Randall music concerts.

Hoops For the Ages

We will help to facilitate this 3-on-3 basketball tournament for men and women 40+. The tournament will take place April 9 and 10.

Ongoing Programs

Outdoor Spaces

As part of the annual refreshment and maintenance of the Center's outdoor areas, the LSCF:

  • Maintains the vegetable gardens with help from community partners

  • Plants and maintains the north and south gardens and flower beds surrounding the Mulford and Dodge Levy Center signage

  • Works with the City on the Rothschild Garden

We will continue our expanded bimonthly virtual Levy Lecture series with a spectacular lineup scheduled through June of 2022.

Launched with Ascension Illinois in 2021, the Levy Longevity Series continues to host events monthly with special guests on topics pertaining to aging well.
