GirlZone Reunion Weekend 2015


18 years ago, GirlZone started up our hands-on, female led workshops aimed to bring together local resources to support girls and young women in Champaign-Urbana.

15 years ago, we hosted our very first GrrrlFest. That same year, the City of Champaign named April 22 “GirlZone Day.” We were written up in the Chicago Tribune that year. And we had a ton of workshops and other things going on. 15 years ago. What’s been going on with you since then?

Well, we miss you, and we want to know.

We decided that 15 years since the first GrrrlFest is a great time to find out. We are so excited to announce that we are having a GirlZone Reunion Weekend this summer in CU, August 1 and August 2.

All reunion events are FREE for past GirlZone volunteers and participants, and for up to two of their young female guests who register by July 25. Workshops MAY be opened to public registration for a small per-workshop fee if spaces remain available. Either way, space is very limited in this event, so register soon!
As always, GirlZone workshops are staffed by talented females who volunteer to share their skills with local girls and young women. Workshops are open to females. Panels and shows open to all. Donations are always accepted.

AFSCME Local 3700 Elections

Probably not relevant to a lot of the people who look at my site but hopefully a few of you! Local 3700 (office support, account techs, clerks, early childhood development staff, etc) at the University of Illinois is holding its first real public elections in many years and I urge you to come out and vote for my slate!
We will work for you! We will help maintain all the gains we’ve fought for and continue to make the University a great place to work.

July 23rd from 6:30 to 8:00pm at the University YMCA at 1001 Wright Street.

Ann Zettervall for President
Nadja Robot for Vice President
Katrina Smith for Recording Secretary
Rebecca (Buffy) Vance for Treasurer
