Kiwanis Annual Draw Down & Silent Auction


Stage Coach Players of DeKalb will be continuing to perform community outreach as they wait in the wings during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Each Tuesday in November and December, the theatre group will be your Donation Location, as the theatre group collects for the Toys for Tots program and has an Angel Tree.  They will continue to gather food for Thanksgiving food boxes.  Most needed are bottled or canned gravy, stuffing mixes, dessert boxes and ten dollar gift cards towards the purchase of a turkey.

Partnering with the U. S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, Stage Coach will be collecting toys for another three weeks.  All you need to do is drop off an unwrapped toy at Stage Coach Players’ theatre Tuesdays from 4 – 6 p.m., or at any one of their Donation Location collection boxes through December 8th.  To find a collection box contact Stage Coach Players via their Facebook page.

Additionally, Stage Coach Players will put out their Christmas Angel Tree for those to stop by also on Tuesdays from 4 – 6 p.m. and take a tag from the tree to purchase a gift to ensure local kids receive a gift this holiday.  Return the gift unwrapped and drop it off at Stage Coach Players’ theatre the following Tuesday.

The cabaret series is still available on the Stage Coach Players’ YouTube channel to help your desire for local singers to perform musical pieces.  Episode eight of ten will premiere at 6 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 5th and is called “Robbed.”  It will feature songs from musicals that were ‘robbed’ of a Tony.  They include Chicago, West Side Story and Into the Woods.

Lastly, starting in December on Tuesday afternoons, members of Stage Coach Players will be, “Caroling for A Cause” with renditions of holiday favorites as you drop off toys for the above charities or come to pick up face mask making material.

Stage Coach Players’ members David Kuhn, Greg Anderson
and Jan Kuntz collect gifts and toys for the holidays.

KEC Offers New Course for High School Students

KEC Partners With The Legacy Academy in Sycamore  

The Kishwaukee Education Consortium (KEC), which offers career and technical education courses for high school juniors and seniors, has partnered with the Legacy Academy in Sycamore to offer high school juniors and seniors a Barbering class.  The class will allow for students interested in a Barbering certificate to get over 1,000 hours in a two year program towards the 1,500 hours needed in order to sit for the Illinois Department of Health Barbering License Exam.  KEC Executive Director, Tom Crouch says that the new class offering meets all of the checkmarks for beginning a new program.  “The class meets many of the goals stated in our strategic plan including equity, internship opportunities, certifications and local labor market needs as there is a shortage of licensed barbers in our region and the closest training school had been in Schaumburg prior to Legacy opening in Sycamore just a few weeks ago.  Our board is very excited about the opportunity to offer the class under our cosmetology and esthetics pathway and I am very happy to be partnering with The Legacy Academy in Sycamore to create opportunities for high school students in our region.”

KEC has been busy adding offerings for high school students.  The barbering class is now the eighth program added to the KEC catalog since 2012 along with Emergency Medical Technician, Esthetics, Business Leadership, Sports Medicine, Basic Firefighter Operator, New Teacher Academy and Web Development.  KEC has over 20 programs total, with most offering college credit.

“We have been fortunate to have great post secondary partners like Northern Illinois University, Kishwaukee College, Waubonsee Community College, Rock Valley College and Elgin Community College that all share the same passion with providing college credit and opportunities for high school students in our region through KEC.  The local businesses like the Legacy Academy, Hair Professionals and Debutantes that offer certificates and training for our future workforce is also a blessing.”
