Virtual Lunch & Learn - The Stages of Memory: Reflections on Memorial

Lunch & Learn - "The Stages of Memory: Reflections on Memorial Art, Loss, and the Spaces Between"

In recent weeks we have witnessed civil unrest that has led to the tearing down of public monuments. This story is not unique: history is littered with statues, intended initially as commemorative objects, marking historical events that become controversial. Occasionally the historical lens shifts and these monuments come under scrutiny and eventually are removed or destroyed.

Join James Young, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Founding Director of the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies at University of Massachusetts Amherst, as he traces what he calls an “arc of memorial vernacular” from early Holocaust memorials to Maya Lin’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Germany’s “counter-monuments,” Berlin’s Denkmal, and New York City’s 9/11 Memorial.

He will also reflect on his role as a juror for the Denkmal and 9/11 Memorial design competitions and offer context to the undoing of contemporary monuments.

I Can Cook!

This group was developed to help your child participate in an important family routine and develop a lifelong skill, cooking!

Each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills. Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually share their finished product with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children aged 6 years and older. Please contact Megan Kowalski for fee information.

National Kidney Foundation of Illinois 35th Annual Gift of Life Gala: Coming Together As A Team

The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois (NKFI) announces the 35th Annual “Gift of Life Gala: Coming Together As A Team” virtually on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. The evening will benefit the NKFI mission to improve the health and well-being of those at risk or affected by kidney disease through free screening programs and community health initiatives in Illinois.

Paying homage to the spirit of teamwork, NKFI along with Chicago White Sox Charities will honor the memory of legendary broadcaster and pitcher Ed Farmer, posthumously, with the “Gift of Life Award.” 30 years ago, Ed was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease at the age of 40 and later received a transplant from his brother, Tom. Ed was passionate about kidney disease and often returned to Harvard, where his transplant was performed, to speak with current patients. Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White will present the award to Darrin Jackson, WGN radio broadcaster and organ donation activist, who will accept the award on behalf of his late radio partner, Ed Farmer.

Illinois State Senator Mattie Hunter will also be recognized with the “Gift of Life Award” for her efforts in spearheading the Kidney Disease Prevention and Education Task Force. The “Corporate Partner Award” will be given to Baxter International, Inc. for their continuous support of NKFI and its mission for more than 20 years.

Pat Tomasulo, sports anchor and reporter at WGN-TV, will serve as master of ceremonies and host the evening’s events. Ballpark favorites such as peanuts and popcorn will be sent to all guests in advance to enjoy during the program. Together as a team, the virtual gala will raise awareness of kidney disease and bring together supporters of organ donation.

Event sponsors include Nephrology Associates of Northern Illinois and Indiana, Dialysis Care Center, Gift of Hope, and NX Stage.
