Downtown Homewood takes on festive look

Students in Homewood District 153 will be volunteering to help the homeless and children in hospitals on Monday, Dec. 7, the first Tom Brabec Day in Homewood schools.

When Tom Brabec retired from the Homewood District 153 School Board in May after 18 years of service, the board decided it would dedicate a day of service involving students at each of its schools. Brabec Day is meant to reflect on the many ways he shares his time and talent with the community.

Students are looking for donations that they can use to fill the needs . . .
