“Officer Joseph P. Cali” post office…

On 23 April 2017 band members were honored to participate in the dedication ceremony of the Norwood Park Post Office as “Officer Joseph P. Cali” post office.  Here are some words from Chicago’s 41st Ward Alderman — Anthony Napolitano who helped make this happen – visit the Alderman’s Facebook page for photos and other media here.

Two years ago we honored slain officer Joseph P. Cali with an honorary Street dedication. We wanted to do more for our 41st ward resident, police officer, first responder, father, husband, friend and veteran. Today, along side the Cali family, we have come full circle with the naming of Norwood Park Post office at 6300 N. Northwest Highway the “Officer Joseph P. Cali” post office.

Thank you to everyone that made today possible and for getting this submitted into congress for us. Congressman Michael Quigley and Mary Ann Levar, Michael P McAuliffe, Michael Byrne, Chicago Postmaster Tangela L. Bush.

Thank you to Alderman Nicholas Sposato and the hundreds of 41st Residents that helped celebrate Officer Cali’s coming home. Thank you to Mike Jettner Revel Bar Chicago for hosting an after party celebration. A big thank you to David Dis for all his help and organizing donations today for Brotherhood for the Fallen. A special heartfelt thank you to the entire Cali family.
