    August 2013

    Among the many reasons why our community of Naperville, IL is consistently ranked as one of the top places to raise a family in the United States is the sheer amount of family-centric programs that are put on by our many civic-minded organizations in the city. Looking at the Naperville Calendar of Events is almost an embarrassment of riches for our town. Since Chevrolet of Naperville is committed to giving back to the people who are our business partners and friends it only makes sense that we do our part in getting some of this news about new things to do in Naperville, IL out to the public.

    Naperville Farmer’s Market

    Few things make a salad or a simple sandwich taste as wonderful as freshly picked fruits or vegetables on a couple of slices of freshly baked bread. If this is the sort of thing that gets your taste buds making the decisions, then the weekly farmer’s market held every Saturday until October the place for you. Local artisans of all types use the 5th Avenue Station front parking lot as an open-air market to sell their wares from 7 a.m. to noon; rain or shine.

    Free Movie Nights in Central Park

    Going to movies would be a great family activity if it wasn’t for cramped seats, sticky floors and concessions so expensive that you have to consider a night job to pay for them. With Free Movie Nights in Central Park, you can enjoy a nice meal downtown or bring a picnic basket and a blanket and watch a popular movie while being stretched out and comfortable on the grass of Central Park, located at the corner of Washington Street and Benton Street. On August 2, the super hero team of “The Avengers” will be gracing the screen and on August 31 the animated “Hotel Transylvania” will be shown.

    The 2013 Last Fling

    Right now it may seem like summer but it is getting into the waning moments faster than some would like. Aug. 30 through Sept. 2 is the annual Last Fling celebration. The Last Fling encompasses everything we have to be proud of in Naperville. The four-day festival encompasses nearly a mile of Naperville’s downtown streets and features music stages, numerous family attractions and very likely more food that would be reasonable to eat in only a single visit. Headlining the main concert will the The Goo Goo Dolls.


    A special thanks to our local Naperville Fire Department and Chevrolet of Naperville Technicians, Steve Kalamen and Perry Bridgeman! Several firemen were on site to learn all about the Chevrolet Volt! With the increasing number of Volts on the road, as part of First Responder, it is very imperative when in an emergency situation firemen know how and where to cut into the vehicle, disable the vehicle's power system and how to power down the vehicle. The firemen had a great walk around of the Volt vehicle and all the features inside, outside and under the hood! Just another way Chevrolet of Naperville is concerned for safety in the community and partners with the Naperville Fire Department!

    City of Naperville, IL Unveils First Public Car Charging Station, Perfect for the Chevy Volt

    Chevrolet of Naperville is very excited to announce that residents and customers who travel to downtown Naperville, Illinois in their Chevy Volt or other electric vehicle now have access to a public charging station that was unveiled last week by the city, where they can charge their car for free.

    Last week the city of Naperville, Illinois unveiled the first of possibly several electric charging stations in the downtown Van Buren Street parking lot. Chevrolet of Naperville is extremely excited that this great city is looking at “green” options for those who choose to drive the Chevy Volt in Naperville, IL or other electric vehicles. The charging stations will be turned on Tuesday, October 16th and will allow users to partially recharge their vehicle for up to three hours. 

    City officials expect the charging station to be a big hit and Chevrolet of Naperville is ecstatic to have such a great asset to the community right in the downtown area. City Manager, Doug Krieger said that this station will serve as a test pilot and that if it is popular, more will come. Downtown businesses are very happy about the new charging station as well. They are counting on people doing their shopping and eating out while their vehicle is charging. There are not many other restaurants that you can dine at while charging your car, but Naperville now has options.

    Chevy Volt drivers are finding charging their Volt easier and easier these days. An employee of Chevrolet of Naperville, and a Volt driver herself, recently had the new Volt charging system installed right on her garage. The Blink system is great for getting a quick charge and it is the same system that is installed at the Naperville downtown station. A full charge can be had in four hours with the charging system on a Volt.

    Chevrolet of Naperville would like to invite any electric vehicle drivers to head downtown and shop, dine and charge their cars. Many people that are visiting Naperville should take advantage of this station as well. Downers Grove, IL Chevy shoppers regularly come in to Naperville and now they can charge their car while they shop. Romeoville Chevy shoppers can come in and see the selection of Volts in our store as well.


    Congratulations to Joe Buerger, Bob Snell and Bill Uribe on your Disney Diploma! You all look so proud with Mickey!

    Working With Our Youth


    As baseball season approaches, Chevrolet of Naperville, the premier Chevy dealership in Naperville, IL, is stepping up to the plate for its local youth baseball team. The dealership is partnering with the Naperville

    Renegades travel baseball club to provide a monetary donation as well as equipment, a chance to attend instructional clinics at Wrigley and U.S. Cellular Fields, and a chance for the Renegades to raise more funds through a Chevy vehicle giveaway fundraiser.

    The partnership is part of Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball Program. Chevrolet of Naperville will present the Renegades with the equipment, which includes hitting nets, baseball buckets, equipment bags and Chevy t-shirts, among other items. The youth players also have the opportunity to attend a clinic run by major and minor league players and coaches in late spring.

    Buzz growing about electric cars in Naperville

    The electric car has been talked about for years, but always seemed to be a vehicle that would only appear sometime in the distant future.

    Now, however, there are clear signs that the technology is beginning to make its first steps towards general acceptance here in Naperville.

    Stepping up to buy

    Naperville resident Steve Lottes wants to start a revolution. A research scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, Lottes believes that change isn’t about numbers, it’s about just one person stepping up and hoping to make a difference. And for Lottes, changing the world started with buying a car.






    We at Driving the Midwest want to thank everyone who visited our site to vote and show their support for all of our recent first responder finalists. Each of these firefighters, paramedics and police officers truly exemplifies an everyday hero – individuals serving their communities with dedication, bravery and pride, both in and out of uniform.

We are proud to recognize Phil and his dedication to the Naperville Fire Department and Opportunity Knocks. To reward Phil, General Motors will provide him with a week-long loan of a new vehicle and a special prize package. Phil’s nominator, John Halgren, will also receive a week-long loan of a General Motors vehicle. Continue reading to see why John says Phil is a hero!

    Phil Carmody from Naperville, nominated by John Halgren Phil is a hero for two reasons. Not only is he a Naperville firefighter paramedic, but he also serves as the President on the Board of Directors for ‘Opportunity Knocks,’ an organization dedicated to advancing opportunities for challenged adults in our neighborhood. His brother, Mike, founded the organization and was inspired by their brother John, who has Down syndrome. Phil campaigns tirelessly and truly represents a hometown hero.
