But one of the activities that she is most proud of is being an business activist in the community
Ann Turner took the lead after one of the business owners in her strip of stores was held up at gun point.
The immediate reaction from some of the business owners was to leave the community.
She became pro-active and called for a meeting with the owners and the 19th Police district.
After several meeting she soon realize they needed to join forces – there is power in numbers.
She initiated The 63rd Street Business Association who helps to engage the business community with resources and host seminars to help revitalize and strengthen small businesses.
Their annual Fall Festival held in October is greatly anticipated.
Since the start of the association three years ago there has not been any robberies. A number of new services businesses have opened in the area.
