Welcome back friends! Winter is still here and you’re back, hopefully, you are ready for this new semester! (I’m only half ready, but this isn’t about me this is about y’all!)
Let’s see what’s going on around town! There are quite a few CPM Announcements as well so keep your eyes open!
Loving your apartment? Well, you should renew! And here are some good reasons why, 5% off, and a choice of a game system. Hit me up on Fortnite! Looking for a fourth member for the squad fam, just got my first solo win. This only lasts THIS WEEK, so hurry up and renew!
There’s a new building, it’s fresh, it’s stylish, it’s cool, it’s on Wright St, it has the Boneyard Creek running underneath, and from 4PM-5Pm every Wednesday and Thursday you can tour this fabulous building where CPM will make it’s new home later this year. Splendid and spectacular, modern and strategically placed, definitely take the tour and say hi to our lovely employees.
Also, we are back to our regular hours this week.
This event is to train you in the artistry of Master Gardener tomorrow from 5:30PM-7:30PM at the University of Illinois Extension: Champaign, Ford, Iroquois, and Vermillion.
“Love gardening? Volunteering? Helping to beautify our community? Come join our Master Gardener program!
Master Gardeners are volunteers who have a love of gardening and a passion to share it with others. During Master Gardener training, attendees have the opportunity to learn about horticulture topics from University of Illinois educators in a way that is interesting and practical to the home gardener. The classes are geared for all levels, from beginning to experienced gardeners.
2019 training kicks off in January and will be held weekly. For more information and to apply for the program, visit web.extension.illinois.edu/cfiv/. We’ll be hosting training in Champaign and Danville!”

THE FROZEN 5K! Saturday 9AM-10:30AM with some swag that comes with the registration. Do you have winter gear for jogging? Go buy some now, it’s adamant to have winter jogging gear for all purposes and reasons. Mine are usually winter camping and winter jogging, but even just putting on a bunch of under armour and hanging up a hammock in January to read a book, it’s such a great way to spend your money.
