Naperville Responds to Harvey:
Naperville is responding to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. This morning the City held a meeting at the Municipal Center to educate people on the best ways to respond. And many from around the community are already collecting donations for those in Houston.
The Naperville Jaycees are also lending a hand. The group will be taking cash and check donations in buckets at all ticket and beverage sale booths at this weekend’s Last Fling. Bucket shakers will also collect donations at Monday’s Labor Day Parade. To learn more about how you can help visit the City of Naperville’s website, http://www.naperville.il.us/harveyrelief.
Senator Sanders in Town:
Current U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders spoke to a packed auditorium of Naperville students yesterday. The senator spoke to about 800 government students from both Naperville North and Central about the importance of caring about politics. Sanders was in town to promote his latest book “Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution.”
Girls Tennis Begins:
Another fall sport began competition this week as Naperville Central traveled to the St. Scholastica courts at Benet Academy for girls tennis. The host Redwings won the 1A state championship last season. Central started off on the right foot with Jacquelyne Qi winning number one singles in straight sets over Daniella Nenadovich. However, Benet took the other two singles matches of the day. The Redwings also won three of the four doubles matches, including top doubles team Lane Schifer and Trinity Marshall winning a highly contested three set match over Elaine and Katie Liu. Benet picks up the early season win, 5 to 2.
