Norwalk High School Drama Presents Spring Play on April 5th and 6th The Norwalk High School Drama department will present Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here: The Story of a Prom, on Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th. Both performances will be held at Norwalk High School's Performing Arts Center, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door. This performance is a story about a girl; she calls herself Gor. She's an antisocial Goth who hates people, social events, and any color that's not black and she just got put in charge of the prom. This humorous, unique play exposes us to the many different personality types within a high school, and teaches us a valuable lesson that no matter how different we may be, we ultimately can find common ground among us. Don't miss this honest view of high school life. Norwalk Greenways Committee Seeks Volunteers By Stephanie Riva, Norwalk City Council Connecting all areas within the City of Norwalk to each other, to adjacent communities, and to the Great Western Trail is a top priority for the City. The City Council set an ambitious goal of providing, within ten years, community-wide access to all neighborhoods, recreation facilities, schools, business areas, government offices, places of worship, and other community destinations through a system of paved and unpaved trails, sidewalks, linear parks, and other pathways. To meet this goal, the City is developing a Greenways Plan and is seeking community volunteers to assist in that effort. The Greenways Committee will have ten members, and its volunteer citizen members will ideally represent a wide variety of greenways users, including a range of ages and abilities, different levels of recreational users, school and work commuters, health and wellness professionals, and the business community. The Greenways Committee's work will begin in May 2019 and end with the Greenways Plan's presentation to City Council in the fall of 2020. Committee members can expect to attend one, regular monthly meeting; assist City staff and consultants with research, including an inventory of existing greenways; and participate in ad hoc events such as public hearings and public input-gathering sessions. The average time commitment for a Committee member is estimated to be one to three hours a month. If you're interested in serving on the Norwalk Greenways Committee, please complete the Greenways Committee application form that can be found on the City's website at www. norwalkparks.org. Applications are due by April 12th, 2019. Please contact Stephanie Riva with any questions: sriva@norwalk.iowa.gov, or 515-822-1425.
