October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. During its annual awareness campaign, Gateway is spotlighting its long-standing contract with Illinois Department of Transportation in which clients have provided janitorial needs and outdoor groundskeeping to the Great Sauk Trail rest areas west of Princeton for around 35 years.
Be on the lookout for Bureau County United Way mailers in your mailbox this week. The campaign has kicked off and will help support this year's $107,000 goal. Also, mark your calendar for Oct. 21 when BCUW hosts a Hocus Pocus fundraiser movie night at Apollo Theater.
