The Sun wants to share your calendar items about community events, club meetings, fundraisers and other things to do in Naperville.
Did you visit a new granddaughter? Give us her name, as well as all the names involved. Go on a trip? Tell us a little about it. Get visitors for the holidays? Tell us their names, how long the visit, etc. Names, names, names. We’ll print what we get each week. Send them to Heather Pfundstein at firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject line: “Naperville People.”

Youth Sports will bring you the best of what you submit to us. Do you coach your son’s youth basketball team? Send us the score, a highlight, maybe a photo by a fan and who made the best play of the game.
