A little Coffee, a litte dancing, a little (more) kite flying

Do you live in Roselle? Do you like Coffee?
Coffee with the Village Board is a great opportunity to meet and talk with the Mayor and Board of Trustees. The next Coffee with the Board is this Saturday, May 2, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Village Hall. Unlike regular Village Board or Committee of the Whole meetings, this informal session provides residents and business owners an opportunity to discuss issues affecting them and the community. So come in and enjoy a cup of coffee and chat with your local elected officials.Is that a cool idea or what? Visit the Roselle city website for more info.

Eagle Street. The Zobor Folk Ensemble was founded in 1956 at the Slovak Agricultural Institute in Nitra, Slovakia. The ensemble is comprised of a folk music group, chorus and dance group. They incorporate costumes, dances, music and songs that represent a wide range of eras of Slovak culture. The group has performed throughout Slovakia as well as more than 25 other countries.

The purpose of the Sister Cities Commission is to foster international understanding and friendship by forging personal links through city-to-city affiliations. By exchanging ideas and experiences with Nitra, Slovakia, the two cities strive to strengthen culture, business, government and environment.

Did you fly a kite?
Wheaton's Mayor announced that while the 800 simultaneously flying kites during Wheaton's Go Fly a Kite event fell short of setting the Guinness World Record, overwhelming community response has sealed a run for the record in 2010.

“We had overwhelming community response to an idea we thought would just be a fun day in one of our beautiful Wheaton parks,” Gresk said. “People have been asking when we will do it again, so we’ve decided to attempt a new world record on Saturday, April 17, 2010. It will be bigger and better than ever.”
