Dear Glen Ellyn,

Happy Spring although it does not feel like spring today! April snow showers, bring May flowers!

There is a lot going on throughout the Glen Ellyn community this Spring. Check out events from our community partners below. One of the biggest national events on our minds is the eclipse next week. Safely view the total solar eclipse on April 8th at 1:58 pm with eclipse glasses from the Glen Ellyn Public Library. Pick up one pair of glasses per person, while supplies last, at the drive-up window or at the Library Services, Adult, or Youth desk.

The Glen Ellyn Chamber is happy to share many of our events open for both current and future Chamber members. Check out our event calendar today and highlighted upcoming Chamber events below:

Glenbard Parent Series

Glenbard District 87

Steinberg discusses topics as varied as whether and how you should be involved in your child’s college education, how to behave when they unexpectedly must move back home, how to state your opinion on their romantic partners, what to do when you disagree with the way they are raising their own child, and what parameters to apply if you want to give them money for a home or startup. He answers such challenging questions as: When do I express my opinion and when should I bite my tongue? How do I know if my son is floundering? Is it okay to help my daughter with her grad school application?
