Do you like food trucks and sitting in the sun all day?  Well so does IGS 10!!  Come and celebrate Claremont's 7th annual cc350 on June 3rd!!  It is a bike relay to raise awareness for carbon emissions.  Grab a group of friends and come ride with us.  Team registration will be starting soon.

Musical Theatre – Crazy For You
Starting next week, the Claremont Musical Theatre program will be presenting “Crazy for You” at the Ridge Theatre. This show is a fun musical comedy featuring classic Gershwin songs.  Come see the many talents of our Claremont cast and crew!!  Shows run May 18-21 and May 25-28 @ 7:00 pm.  Tickets are on sale at the accounting office:  $12.50 for students/seniors, $15.00 for adults. Plan ahead – this show will be a hit!!

Battery Recycling Campaign Continues
The battery recycling campaign is continuing!  EACH FRIDAY in May, the IGS Hero Project will be collecting old batteries outside of the lounge during lunch time.  2 billion people worldwide are affected and nearly 450,000 children die every year from complications associated with zinc deficiency. Every AA battery contains the amount of zinc needed to save the lives of six children. Let's make a difference, Claremont!!
