HSS Teacher Appreciation Week
The Naperville-Aurora chapter of Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh celebrated the start of teacher appreciation week in a unique way called Guru Vandana. Twenty-eight teachers from area schools attended the event at Eola Community Center, along with three District 204 board members. The event also included exhibitions on Indian culture and music performed by area students.
Wonderful World of Wheels
Trucks, fire engines, and tractors filled the Whole Foods parking lot on 75th Street today. The Naperville Park District’s Wonderful World of Wheels gave preschoolers the chance to get hands on with the vehicles for the 21st straight year. The event is designed to familiarize children with emergency services and other vehicles they might see around town.
