Goodwill of Central Illinois will hold the 5th Annual Recycle Your Style Contest. High school students within Goodwill’s territory are encouraged to donate their used clothing. The high school that donates the most pounds of clothing will win a SMART Board donated by Bradfield’s Computer Supply. The contest runs from October 1st through October 31st. “This has been a very successful campaign for us,” said Bob Parkhurst, Goodwill Vice President. “We are grateful for Bradfield’s Computer Supply’s donation of a SMART Board each year. That prize really heats up the competition among the high schools.” Donations of items other than clothing are encouraged, but only clothing will count toward the contest. Only high schools are eligible, but others can participate including teachers, family and school supporters. Donors need to tell the Goodwill donation attendant which high school they are supporting for their donation to be counted. Donations can be made at any of Goodwill’s nine stores o
Yesterday's Says Goodbye to the Past: Welcoming the Next Generation of Schramm Pekin, IL- Yesterday’s Bar & Grill isn’t the same these days, and Pekin is here for it ! Pekin Restaurant Week couldn’t be a better reason to see (and taste) the changes. Family owned for nearly three decades, YBG has been taken on by the next generation of Schramm: Chef JoElle. Chef JoElle has returned to her hometown to take up the torch of family business. With a bachelor’s degree in restaurant management and culinary arts, she had pursued upscale dining scenes of the Windy City for several years, returning to help family as the world faced the COVID-19 pandemic. “I returned when the world shut down,” says Chef JoElle, now owner of Yesterday’s Bar and Grille. “Being close to help my family was just the right decision.” Chef JoElle’s innovative restaurant management mindset helped to keep revenue incoming, pivoting the business to offer oven ready meals of everything from whole
The Pekin Women's Leadership Network empowers women to become effective leaders by providing essential skills and strategies for professional and personal growth. A variety of carefully tailored programs are designed to support women in all phases of their careers. Why is this program needed? Although women have made great strides in achieving equality, a leadership gap continues. In 2013, 20 women serve in the Senate, and only 78 women serve in the House of Representative. Overall, women hold 98, or 18.3% of the 525 seats in the 113th U.S congress. Locally, the statistics are even worse, with only 1 woman serving on the Pekin City Council. The business world does not fare much better, with only 22 women CEO's in the Fortune 500. Our focus is on helping young women develop the skills and abilities necessary to succeed and flourish in their chosen career paths. Sessions scheduled for the 2013-2014 series include: November 1st - Women in Politics - Rep. Cheri Busto
