Back To School Jamboree Coming Up Saturday
September 3, 2014 — A popular “beginning of the school year” public event is coming this weekend in Gary.
Democratic State Representative Vernon Smith says the Back-to-School Jamboree will be held Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the I-U Northwest campus.
The Back-to-School Jamboree will offer activities for students of all ages, including the popular day-long three-on-three basketball tournament in Savannah Hall Gymnasium. A film festival will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside Savannah Hall Auditorium. Area agencies will have exhibit booths and pass out information about what those organizations offer students.
The Jamboree is co-sponsored by I-U Northwest, along with several major Gary area industries and businesses and Representative Smith’s office.
