Avoca is helping to build a library and global connectedness!

We are excited to welcome Kim Phuc & Nick Ut to our district to present to 4th-8th graders on Tuesday, September 10th!

From 6:30-7:30 PM on 9/10, Kim and Nick will be at The Book Stall in Winnetka. The Bookstall is generously donating 20% of ALL sales that day to our library project, so a great time to stock up on books and gifts, while supporting education!

On September 11th, we'd love to see many parents join us for our fundraising event, "An Evening with Kim Phuc: A Celebration of Peace and Mindfulness!" (Use QR code on image to purchase tickets.) We are looking for a few students 3rd grade and up that might be interested in serving as volunteer Jr. Peace Ambassadors during this event. Students would be assisting with the Silent Auction and the 50/50 raffle.

For more information, please email Avoca West ITC Director, Ms. Geidner at geidners@avoca37.org.


Girls and boys 6th Grade & Up are invited to come to the Troop 2 Meeting on Tuesday, September 10th at 7:30 pm to learn more about the adventures and opportunities that await in the great outdoors! (No previous Scout experience required).
