    SHOE SHARE – “Gently Worn GYM Shoes”

    The DeKalb County Health Department is initiating a “Shoe Share” collection for “gently worn gym shoes” from April 7th to June 7th at locations throughout DeKalb County.  The program will provide gym shoes to children and young adults for next school year that may not have them.  This program has already received support from our Superintendent, Mrs. Countryman and we are hoping that you will participate in the exciting initiative.

    SOUTHEAST ASIA CLUB @ NIU

                   The students of Southeast Asia Club at Northern Illinois University would like to invite you to our Southeast Asia Culture Festival on Saturday April 26th, 2014. Southeast Asia Club aims to promote the cultural and academic interests of Southeast Asia at NIU and in our community, this is why we are hosting a free and family-friendly event, which will include fun and interactive educational activities for everyone. 

    At our themed booths attendees will learn about the many cultures of Southeast Asia by participating in cultural crafts, playing musical instruments, tasting Asian snacks, and learning different languages. There will also be a number of performing art demonstrations, featuring traditional music, martial arts, and dances. Children and adults of all ages will be welcome.

    The culture festival will be held from 4 to 6 PM on Saturday, April 26th in the Chick Evans Field House, North Gym, at NIU. The Field House is located on the Southeast corner of Lucinda Ave. and Annie Glidden Rd., with parking just south of the building.

    At this event we are also accepting donations of new or used books, novels, and/or textbooks (any reading level) to be sent to schools in Indonesia through the non-profit organization, Books for Indonesia. So please bring some books to pass on!

    We would appreciate it if you could spread the news about this fun event to students and families alike!

    You can check out our flyer here http://tinyurl.com/p8nsy7w and feel free to contact us with any questions or for more information.

     We look forward to seeing you there!
