Naperville SECA Workshop

The Naperville Special Events Cultural Amenities (SECA) Commission hosted a workshop over the weekend to hear from grant applicants during public forum. Naperville SoulFest is looking to turn its one-day event from last year into a three day, weekend event in 2022. Also looking to extend the number of days is Naperville Responds for Veterans. They hope to extend their Naperville Salute from two days to a four-day festival.

Serendipity Celebrates 50 Years

Little Friends resale shop, Serendipity, celebrated 50 years over the weekend. In the fall of 1971, the shop was introduced to the community. After nearly 50 years in Downtown Naperville, the store was moved to the Aurora Marketplace at 461 S Route 59 in November 2020. The money from the resale shop all benefits Little Friends’ programs to support children and adults that are challenged by intellectual and developmental disabilities and autism.
