Speaking of community support, thank you to the Knights of Columbus!
Food for Thought is back again this year! We’ve tweaked the format based on our experience last year. We lengthened the time of the vendor s how and, instead of a big show in the auditorium we’ll have half hour food demonstrations right there in the commons. There will once again be lots of prizes to be won as well! Tickets are now on sale at Centrue Bank and here at SU.
Thank you Bill for the pizza and bowling parties! They were awesome!
A big Thank You to the Streator Lions Club!
Thank you to the Lion’s Club for their $1,000 donation! Streator is lucky to have so many excellent service groups.
Residents, courtesy of 50 Yard Line, and SU staff and family, had a terrific time at Taste of the Town last night. The food was great and the auction items very cool. Money raised is going to local organizations including SU!
The Food for Thought Fundraiser check was presented today. The event was an astonishing success. Thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard and the sponsors and vendors and people who attended. This is a great help to support our programs whose state funding was cut last year.
The day was a big success! We collected six skids worth of material and shredded 17 hard drives! We also bid a job to shred 300 hard drives!
The event went great on Saturday! The Times had a couple of front page photos today. Thank you so much to the sponsors and volunteers, vendors and chef and organizers, who made the day such a success for SU. We were at a loss when the state cut our Workshop funding last year and don’t know where we’d be were it not for the support of the Streator community.
