June 4th: The Gambler
 
This book is particularly relevant with today’s problem of addiction. In this dark and compelling novella, Dostoyevsky tells the story of Alexei Ivanovich, a young tutor working in the household of an imperious Russian general. Alexei tries to break through the wall of the established order in Russia, but instead becomes mired in the endless downward spiral of betting and loss. His intense and inescapable addiction is accentuated by his affair with the General’s cruel yet seductive niece, Polina. In the disastrous love affairs and gambling adventures of his protagonist, the author explores the irresistible temptation to look into the abyss of ultimate risk that he believed was an essential part of the Russian national character.
 
July 9th: We Were the Lucky Ones
 
Diana Ware will lead our discussion of We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter.  It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live their normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer.  The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radon, Poland.  But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.
 
In a novel of breathtaking sweep and scope that spans five continents and six years, and transports readers from the jazz clubs of Paris to Krakow’s most brutal prison to the ports of Northern Africa and the farthest reaches of the Siberian gulag, We Were the Lucky Ones demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment, the human spirit can find a way to survive, and even triumph.
 
 

 
SEE SOMTHING - SAY SOMETHING
 
If You See Something, Say Something™ is a national anti-terrorism public awareness campaign that emphasizes the importance of reporting suspicious activity to law enforcement authorities. Residents are urged to call 855-RPRT-2S4 (855-777-8274) – the official toll-free number of the local Chicago and Cook County campaign – to report any non-emergency suspicious activity to local authorities. Both the OEMC and the DHSEM stress that security is the responsibility of the whole community; however, if there is an immediate threat to life or property, the public is urged to call 9-1-1.

SAFETY REMINDERS FROM THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT
Call 911 when you are witness to a public safety issue, regardless of whether the situation is an emergency. The Police Department logs every 911 call and that log is an important tool for the Police Superintendent to decide how to allocate resources.

 HEART DEFIBRILLATOR NOW AVAILABLE FOR USE AT 55 EAST ERIE
The 55 East Erie Condominium Association is proud to announce that a portable heart defibrillator is now available for emergency use in the building. The Board authorized its purchase and staff training on it in our continuing effort to make our building the best it can be – with health and safety of our residents our first priority!
 
Each year, more than a quarter-million Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest. According to medical experts, the key to survival is timely response including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) or the use of a portable lifesaving device such as a heart defibrillator. The device is also known as an “automated external defibrillator” or “AED.”
 
If you or someone in your unit may be in cardiac arrest, it is important to first call 911 to request emergency medical attention.
 
Only after 911 has been called should you call the front desk at (312) 440-9917 to request the defibrillator, which a member of the door staff will then bring to your unit for use. The door staff has received training on how to operate the device. The AED is located on the first floor in close proximity to the Door staff desk.
 
You do not need to be a medical professional to use the device to treat a person in cardiac arrest. The AED device guides the user through the process with audible and visual prompts. The American Heart Association notes that thousands of lives could be saved annually by prompt use of defibrillators.
 
The AED at 55 East Erie is called the Phillips Heartstart FRx.  Click here for more detailed information about the device.
 
If you would like to become familiar with the equipment, location and emergency procedures please make an appointment with the Management Office.
 
Our hope is that the AED will never be needed. But if it is ever needed our building is prepared!
