Chair of the Partnership Committee, CGG Associate Board
March of Dimes, Sr. Community Director
Lindsey Stanley: Hi my name is Lindsey and I am the Chair of the Partnership Committee, I learned about Gateway Green when I was brand new to the city.
Almost three years ago I was searching for a .org to dedicate my time, but what I ended up finding has totally blown my mind!
I love knowing that Gateway Green is dedicated to keeping this city beautiful and clean, a city without trash and pollution is every resident and visitor’s dream!
Not only have I met some of the nicest people in the city while serving on the Executive Associate Board, but we continue to engage the community and have a BLAST spreading the word!
Chicago Gateway Green: Favorite thing about Chicago?
LS: My favorite thing about Chicago is difficult to narrow down to just one… there are so many great options for having tons of fun!
There is a soft spot in my heart for the skyline view from the beach, feeling the city buzz from the sand makes any day complete.
The culture, art, and music fill many of my days with delight, and I love listening to live music in the park on starry nights.
The food options are endless and I love the funky neighborhood vibes, one minute you are in Wicker eating pizza and then enjoying authentic Indian food on the North side.
CGG: Favorite book/movie?
LS: I like to read occasionally and don’t usually sit still for movies, but I love the book “Mother Teresa, No Greater Love”, because the content is quite moving.
I am a sucker for funny flicks though and could watch Borat or Dumb & Dumber all the time, but prefer to be outside somewhere, soaking up sunshine.
CGG: Something interesting or odd?
LS: I am currently “re-learning” the trumpet and hope to rock that out, but learning an instrument as an adult is challenging without a doubt!
There are many more “odd” things that make me who I am, but am ok with being little nerdy and my friends all call me “Stan”.
