Naperville Now 10-12-17

Sister City Citizens:

Yesterday at city hall, Mayor Steve Chirico granted honorary citizenship to 35 students from Nitra, Slovakia – Naperville’s sister city. The group is being hosted here in town by Neuqua Valley High School, for a 10-day exchange program made possible in part by the Sister Cities Commission. Their trip to city hall was part of their special “City of Naperville Day,” which also included taking a tour of some local landmarks and all five area high schools.

Dyslexia Simulation:

In recognition of Dyslexia Awareness Month, the 95th Street Library is hosting a dyslexia simulation tonight at 6:30. Parents, families and teachers can participate in different exercises, getting a chance to write, listen and read in a similar way to those who suffer from dyslexia. The workshop is meant to help others better understand those who suffer from the learning disorder.

Glass Pumpkin Patch:

It’s pumpkin preview day at the Morton Arboretum – stop by today and you can sneak a peek at their seventh annual Glass Pumpkin Patch. The glass gourds are handcrafted, and will be on sale this weekend, starting tomorrow at 1 p.m. You can also catch daily demonstrations by the glass blowers as they make their specially crafted pumpkin creations.

Little Brass Bell Battle:

This weekend, North Central College football will travel to Wheaton College for the annual battle for the little brass bell.
