Residents of the River Bend are invited to a free event later today at Roxana Junior/Senior High School. The 3rd Annual Parent and Community Learning Institute will combine a free meal with free information on community services and a health fair for all ages. Attendance prizes will also be handed out from 5:30-8:00pm today.

Roxana School District Assistant Superintendent Steve Oertle says he thinks the event is popular because it's free, and it contains more and more resources for the public:

Oertle comment

There will be several free presentations, more than 100 booths, and even a chance to learn more about Roxana junior and senior high schools. The free dinner includes tacos, taco salad and ice cream. The event is free and open to all residents of the River Bend.
