Handshake, Hug or Hi
Joel Friders, Yorkville Alderman, 3rd Ward
Last year over 41,000 people were lost to suicide. Yorkville has adopted a proclamation for September to be National Suicide Awareness month along with 24 Illinois municipalities and the state of Illinois. This outreach project is all about recognizing that suicide is a problem and sometimes it's best to reach out to someone just by starting a conversation, a handshake, a hug or a hi.

The Cher Show
Cher might not be able to turn back time but she can certainly give her blessing on a musical that will tell the story of her life, career, and how she became one of America's most treasured stars. We meet some of the stars and creatives to see what it took to put this one-of-kind show together.
