Where does Project Simeon 2000 see themselves in the future?

What and where is the Simeon Alumni Village?

The Simeon Alumni Village is located at 820 W. 89th Street, right off 89th and Halsted. This is the home of Project Simeon 2000. If you are looking to host a community event, private reception or function, please give us a call to see if we’re available on that date. We are reasonably priced and would love to have you!

But I’m already on the Simeon Alumni Association listserve, isn’t that the same thing?

Excellent question! The Simeon Alumni Association and Project Simeon 2000 are actually two separate organizations.

I already get enough spam in my inbox, am I going to get daily emails from Project Simeon 2000?

Absolutely not! We understand the enormous amount of junk emails you receive and we are not trying to add to them. Project Simeon 2000 only sends one email per week in a newsletter format listing the upcoming events for that month.

Do I have to be a Simeon alumni in order to support Project Simeon 2000?

Not at all! We welcome support from any individual or organization in time, talent or treasure – provided we do not have conflicting goals or mission statements.
