This week, we have a lot  going on. For many of CPM's tenants, Wednesday is move-out day. Be sure to check out of move-out post tomorrow so you can make sure you know what we look for after a tenant moves out of one of our apartments. 

Though this week may be a bit busy for some of you, there are many events in Champaign-Urbana perfect for when you need to take a break from packing or simply want to get out of the house. From farmers markets to movies, let's take a look at what's happening this week in town! 

Monday, August 5th

Remember Hamlet? That Shakespeare play some of us know from high school. (More of us know it from the plot from The Lion King). It has murder, madness, more murder, and ghosts! The newest movie adaptation is from the perspective of a character that doesn't get nearly enough respect: Ophelia. Daisy Ridley stars as Ophelia, and takes audiences into the mind of this iconic character. Tonight, The Art Theater presents Ophelia at 7:30 pm.

Tuesday, August 6th

Enjoy some of the last summer vegetables and fruits at the Champaign Farmers Market. The market will continue into October, but now is the time to go for the remaining summer produce. Weaving through the bright stalls filled with home grown and homemade goodies is a perfect way to spend a Tuesday afternoon. The Champaign Farmers Market runs from 3:30 to 6:30 pm, so be sure to stop by after work or classes. For more info about who and what will be there, click here!
