Tonight is the night that Illinois Veterans Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth comes to the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn to announce the award of $1 million in grants to veterans’ advocate John Blanchard’s NASA Education.
Some who watched all her television ads last year when she was running unsuccessfully for Congress against Peter Roskam might be interested in meeting the dynamic young pilot.
As the article says,
“A social hour and registration will be from 6 to 7 p.m. (at Crystal Lake’s Holiday Inn, with the program at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend this free event.
“To RSVP, visit www.nasaeducation.org; call the toll-free number at (866) 338-4968; or e-mail an RSVP to Amy Johnson, event coordinator, at email@example.com.
“Business attire is suggested.”
In this case, “NASA” stands for National Association of Systems Administrators, not the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, although NASA Education does have a “mission control” in its offices.
Pictured are three apartment buildings on Pierson Street between McHenry Avenue and Van Buren. Blanchard has take possession of the two on the ends and intends to use them for veterans’ transitional housing. He hopes to purchase the middle building as well.
