Candy Donation For The Troops

We wanted to let our Neuqua Community know about the candy drive that is being organized by one of our freshman, Maya Stone.  Last year Maya took it upon herself to collect candy for the troops as a way to honor her family members that served our country.  In her first year, Maya was able to collect 550 pounds of candy which she donated to Operation Support Our Troops America.  This year, she is back at it, and I'm reaching out to all of you to contribute to this great cause.

The candy drive runs from November 2nd to November 14th and students can bring candy to collection points at the rotunda and cafeteria in both buildings.  Thanks in advance for supporting Maya and our troops.

Fun Facts About Candy Donation for the Troops

  • Donating candy will help you stick to your New Years resolutions

"The Matchmaker" - Neuqua Theatre Fall Production Dates and Tickets

Thornton Wilder’s uproarious farce about love and money stars the irrepressible busybody, Dolly Gallagher Levi, who inspired the Broadway musical, "Hello, Dolly!" Through Dolly’s subtle machinations, several unlikely couples come together to find happiness in 19th-century New York. Horace Vandergelder, a wealthy merchant in nineteenth-century Yonkers, NY, decides to take a wife and employs a matchmaker, Mrs. Dolly Levi. Dolly subsequently becomes involved with two of Vandergelder's clerks, several lovely ladies, and the headwaiter at an expensive restaurant where this swift farce runs headlong into hilarious complications. After everyone gets straightened out romantically, Vandergelder finds himself affianced to the astute Dolly Levi herself. Dates of Production: November 8-10 @7pm NVHS Main Campus Auditorium 2360 95th Street, Naperville, 60564 $7 for students and senior citizens & $11 for adults. Tickets available at nvtheatre.com.
