We are closing out yet another month and looking ahead to lots of fall fun coming in the weeks ahead
School is in swing for the kids and families are ready for the next season 2020 is bringing our way in Champaign-Urbana
A FREE virtual astronomy session, an outdoor movie night at Allerton (yes, in person!), more sweetcorn at the markets and sunflowers in Urbana (run before they’re gone!) means this is shaping up to be a pretty great weekend.
chambanamoms thanks Champaign Public Library for bringing us this weekend’s planner
Need help with remote learning? The Champaign Public Library and Douglass Branch offer amazing resources for families facing school at home this fall. And they just added a new series of interactive tools designed especially for K–6 students—including BookFlix and Scholastic Teachables. Both locations continue to offer curbside service. Did you hear overdue fines have been eliminated? September is Library Card Signup Month and every Champaign Unit 4 student is eligible to get a card! For more information, check out Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Have you heard about the sunflowers?
It might be one of the best surprises about 2020… the many acres of sunflowers in a field in southwest Urbana are a delight! We have no idea how long they will be up so we recommend you RUN to go check ’em out if you wish. You can’t help but feel the happiness bubbling up while admiring their beauty.
Looking for some classes to sign up for?
We’ve got quite the list of activities, both in-person and virtual, that you can sign up for this fall. Check it out and connect with some community favorites as they roll out their fall programming for this year! Gymnastics, sports, brain power, martial arts and more are all included.

Summer-y hot temps call for cool drinks
Yes, we’re talking fall, but summer is still here. And if you can find a way to get away for some adults only time, we’ve put together a slushy cocktail trail! Seriously! We suppose you could also order some of these to go if you’re not dining out… or you could take the kids with you, too, if you like. Our locally owned businesses that have come up with some unique cocktail concoctions come highly recommended by our readers! Remember to always drive responsibly.
