Many people ask what they can do for Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley besides tutoring. Here are some options:
A Labor Day Weekend Carnival is planned for Sept. 1-5 to benefit Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley and Fox Valley Troop Support. The carnival will be located at the corner of Route 38 and Randall Road in St. Charles. The hours of operation will be 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday.

Not a golfer? You can still do dinner only at the LVFV Golf Outing, Pig Roast and Silent Auction at Thursday, Sept. 8. The pig roast will be outside in the Pavilion. Some of the items on silent auction include an overnight stay at in Geneva, foursomes of golf at various courses and gift certificates galore.
