Black Business Council Meeting

The Black Business Council Meeting will be meeting on Tue, Jul 9, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the third floor meeting room.  This month’s topic will be financial management.


On Tuesday, July 9th at 6:00p.m., we invite you to bring a friend or someone who is suffering from a recent loss from suicide to our monthly support group. Loving Outreach to Survivors of Suicide (LOSS) is a free, non-denominational program that supports individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one by suicide. The LOSS Program is offered by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago in collaboration with the Diocese of Joliet. They are funded by United Way, private foundations, as well as charitable contributions. LOSS offers a safe, non-judgmental environment where survivors of suicide can openly talk about feelings and experiences. They help patrons find community, direction and resources for healing.

League of Women Voters of Kankakee County

The League of Women Voters educates young women and teens on ways to participate in the political process. A nonprofit, bipartisan organization, the LWV welcomes interested individuals to participate in this cost-free organization to learn how a voter’s voice becomes strong, serves a purpose, and supports their community. The LWV meets at 6:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month, July 10th, in the third floor meeting room of the Kankakee Public Library.
