As Billy Joel once said, “No matter what culture you’re from, everyone loves music.” Returning from a brief intermission, Unity Vocal Rush is happy to announce the arrival of this year's Fall Showcase! On Saturday, November 6th at 2pm and 7pm, the Polly Anderson Auditorium will be hosting performances by Vocal Rush and Surreal Sound, as well as a special guest performance from Coach Reed during the 7pm show. Come support our performers and enter in a variety of raffles, such as a chance to win seats for an Illini basketball game or tickets to the John Deere Classic PGA tournament! Doors open at 1:30 for the 2:00 show and at 6:30 for the 7:00 show. Tickets are sold at the door and in the canteen during lunch hours for $10 each. Join us on Saturday in celebrating these students’ talent and hard work, as well as sharing a universal love of music!
Anyone interested in playing Boys’ Basketball should attend a meeting next Tuesday in Coach Reed’s room at 8 am. Questions-see Coach Reed.
Seniors: Herff Jones will have a Parent order night here on Wednesday, November 3rd from 3:30-7 PM
