Focus 205’s Community Engagement Session #6, which was originally scheduled for Monday, December 5, will be rescheduled to Wednesday, February 1, 2017. The Focus 205 Facilitating Team recently made the decision to reschedule because, not only is it a busy holiday season, District 205 has yet to receive the results of our recent Thoughtexchange survey, which will be an important factor in shaping the next meeting’s presentation. Please visit www.focus205.org for complete information regarding the Focus 205 process.

Many thanks to the 1,321 participants who assigned over 118,123 stars in the Thoughtexchange survey's second Star step. There were 615 participants who shared 2,417 thoughts in the first Share step. In total, nearly 1,600 participants shared thoughts, assigned stars or did both – a fantastic result!

A candlelight vigil for peace and understanding, organized by members of the Elmhurst community, will be held on the east steps of Wilder Mansion beginning at 7 pm on Tuesday, December 6, in Wilder Park. Gathering under the banner, “Love Lives Here,” the vigil will be an opportunity for all who attend to show their support for Elmhurst as a community where all are welcome regardless of race, religion, orientation or country of origin.

“Our goal is to celebrate our diversity in a peaceful celebration of our differences and all that binds us together as one community, one country, and one world,” said event organizers Susan Warren and Lisa O’Halloran. “The goal of the evening is to focus our shared energy and commitment on strengthening the diversity that we cherish in Elmhurst, and in communities large and small all across America.”

There will be speakers, community 
singing and soloists, as well as dancers from York High School's Spanish Heritage dance group. Any attendees who wish are invited to bring an ornament symbolizing “peace” in their tradition to the Love Lives Here holiday tree in Wilder Park. Complimentary hot chocolate and home-baked cookies will be served.

Love Lives Here
