Join us and be a part of our community! Getting to know even a few people in your neighborhood can make all the difference, and the BCO makes that easy.
There are many reasons to join us:
- Our Annual Street Sale in June which brings neighbors together for a sense of camaraderie and after-party at a local revenue
- Our Annual Garden Walk in July which brings visitors and Master Gardeners from across Chicagoland to Bowmanville to appreciate the charm and beauty of the gardens right in our own backyards
- Our Summer Social where neighbors from across the 1400+ households in Bowmanville can come together to make new friends and connect with old friends while enjoying themselves over great food and music
- Helping to potentially increase home and property values
- Our annual scholarship fund for high school seniors living in Bowmanville or who attend Amundsen High School
- Maintaining our community gardens along Bowmanville Road and Balmoral Avenue
- Keeping neighbors informed through our quarter newsletter – “The Bee”
We have formalized a process to encourage community members or groups with Bowmanville ties to suggest outreach projects that might be meaningful to Bowmanville residents and the Bowmanville Community Organization. If you have a project idea you’d like the BCO to consider or donate to please fill out and submit this BCO Community Outreach Support Request.
