Trucks, Trees, and Tutus - Dupage News for May 28, 2009

Touch a Truck
West Chicago is hosting their annual "Touch-a-Truck" event this Saturday (the 30th) at Reed-Keppler Park (9am-11am). The kiddos will have the chance to climb on and sit in unusual trucks and cars of all sorts. Police cars, construction trucks, ... you name it, it will be there for your truck-lover to devour. Add in some free hot dogs and Italian ice and you've got a party! :)

Animal Houses at the Morton Arboretum
Let your little animal run around and explore 10 new animal habitats built to human scale. Kids (and adults too) can experience these houses that are designed to show how trees provide shelter for animals and reinforce the importance of appreciating and protecting the trees. Come see how the coyotes, beavers, raccoons, skunks, ants, and more depend on the trees for survival. The animal houses exhibit is free with admission to the Arboretum ($11adult, $8child 2-17).

Time Capsule
When I was in high school, some friends and I put some of our favorite memories into a shoe box and hid it in the ceiling tiles of our church, thinking we would come back years later and share some laughs. I probably don't need to tell you that it never happened. But, if you want to be part of a real time capsule, you can submit something to the City of Wheaton by August 10th.

Tutus for a Cause

Two GlenEllyn moms are selling their adorable tutus at the GlenEllyn Farmer's Market and Flea Market this Friday and Saturday. Both these women have lost loved ones to breast cancer and started selling their creations to raise money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk in August.

Hey Farrah! Don't know if you've seen the latest Oaklee's but there's a coupon in there for the Morton Arboretum -- free admission for one child with one paying adult -- an easy way to save $8!

With the economy where it is today is it very important to purchase something that you can count on and won’t let you down. The slightest equipment set back right now could be the difference between in business or the other.
