For anyone who may have been checking out the World of Naperville over the last couple months, you may have noticed the absence of postings. Such is the reality of keeping up with a BLOG. Nonetheless, today I am recommitting myself to getting this BLOG back on track. My motivation has been catching up on my back issues of The Naperville Sun over the past week or so. Since switching jobs from downtown Chicago to Des Plaines, I’ve greatly missed my train time over the past year which enabled to me to get may daily dose of updated Naperville news.
The focus of this BLOG will continue to focus on the arts, but will also expand to include commentary on all things Naperville. My passion for our community is stronger than ever and I know there are plenty of us out there who take great pride in Naperville today and hope to continue to help write the next great chapter of Naperville’s history for tomorrow.
Of note, this past year I completed the 10 week Naperville Citizen Academy which is most likely gearing up once again this year. It is a hands-on interactive opportunity for regular citizens to delve into the inner-workings of each department of our Naperville city government. From seeing police officers getting tasered to learning more about the behind-the-scenes operations at Naper Settlement, this program is perfect for anyone who has great passion for our community.
