THUMBS UP: These boys are building confidence with a beat. Confidence is one of the main takeaways from the Boys Hip Hop dance class, according to instructor Josh Porter. After the six-week Villa Park Parks & Recreation program, the boys – ages 7 to 12 – will perform March 8 at Willowbrook High School.

THUMBS UP: The Villa Park Board of Trustees took a step toward creating a comprehensive flood plan when it approved studies that will identify problem areas and prioritize future flood control projects throughout the village.
