Description: DeKalb Township hosted its 3rd Annual Senior Vehicle Safety Check. Through partnerships with DeKalb Police, TRIAD, Kishwaukee College, NAPA Auto Cares, and various senior service providers, we had over 60 vehicles pass through our garage. As part of the check, students at Kishwaukee College’s automotive repair program perform a 30-point inspection in the cars to check for any automotive problems and are given a list of any repairs that may need to be made. Additionally, we hand out a list of common scams that are used against senior citizens involving auto repairs. Individuals must be 60 or older to participate in this free program.
Message: Our Adventure Maine Township Summer Camp program for at risk youth ages 8-13 from low income families has offered two 2-week sessions each summer for the past twelve years. Our day camp provides a supportive and structured environment where children can improve their social skills while being exposed to new activities they may not otherwise be able to experience. This photo was taken on a trip to a working farm where campers learned about life on a farm and had up close and personal interactions with farm animals and even caught a chicken (much to their delight!).
Description: We provide a FREE event to bring families of our community together. We grill and serve over 2,000 burgers, brats, and hotdogs served with chips and drinks. We ran a Kids Olympic Event with prizes, a concert for all to enjoy, and a photo booth—all for FREE!
