The Lincoln-Way community will celebrate 20 years of character-building efforts with a weekend of activities for all ages on March 8 and 9.
The Annual Asset Celebration begins at 6:30 p.m. March 8 with a battle of the bands contest at The Hub, 1303 Schoolhouse Road, New Lenox, featuring local bands. The event is open to middle, junior high and high school students and is free with a student ID.
A pancake breakfast will be from 9 to 10 a.m. March 9 at Lincoln-Way East High School, 201 Colorado Ave., Frankfort. A family fun fair will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the East high school gym, with games, crafts, live entertainment, vendors and inflatables.
Entrance to the fair is free, but children are encouraged to bring a new small toy to donate to the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation.
The asset building program has brought together schools, park districts, religious and community groups to promote positive traits in youth.
