PPS Foundation - 6th Annual 365 Breakfast 

PPS Foundation's 6th Annual 365 Breakfast 

We are so thankful to still be holding our annual 365 Breakfast on Thursday, January 7th. While it'll look a little different than other years, the purpose is still the same - to help provide support to our PPS students and staff!

Virtual Townhall - relationship between the community and the police

The Advisory Committee on Police-Community Relations advises the Chief of Police, the Mayor and City Council on matters to improve police-community relations. As a committee that provides independent means of communication and assistance between the citizens of Peoria and the Peoria Police Department, engaging with residents is one of the top priorities for this volunteer-run group. In the past, the committee held several in-person meetings in different zip codes with a large turnout of residents.

Join Monica Smith and the Riverfront Museum’s own Zac Zetterberg in a conversation about this stellar instrument.
