A Message from Supervisor Robert “Bob” Rita

Dear Friends & Neighbors,

As we enjoy the final weeks of summer, and the beauty of fall here in the Southland, I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at our communities’ great festivals and celebrations, as well as at the Calumet Township Community Center.

But the fun doesn’t end when summer does. We’re proud to host upcoming events, workshops, and outings designed especially for you as a resident of Calumet Township, because Calumet Township Cares. I invite and encourage you to attend these fun and informational events, many of which are provided free-of-charge.

One of our top Calumet Township Cares objectives is resident access to healthy nutrition and important screenings. That’s why we’re proud to continue offering our 55+ Choice Market twice each month on Thursday afternoons, where Calumet Township residents aged 55 and older take home a free bag filled with fresh, local produce.

We’re also taking registrations for a group outing to the Downtown Tinley Farmers Market on September 16th. Cost is just $5, and includes roundtrip transportation to this incredible destination for fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers.

Along with our scheduled events, there are many services provided for you by your Calumet Township officials, including:

• Voter Registration • Notary Services • Property Tax Appeal Assistance • Property Tax Exemption Application, and many more.

Should you have any questions, please call our offices at 708-388-6606.

Wishing you a healthy, safe, and happy Autumn!

Robert A. Rita 
Calumet Township Supervisor
