Weekend family fun guide for Feb.8-10

Need something to do with the family to beat the winter blues? Here are our weekend picks for family fun.

Feb. 8
On Feb. 8 Boy Scout Troop 40 is hosting a Fish Fry at the St. Joseph American Legion Post #634 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All the money raised goes to sending scouts to summer and high adventure camps. The cost is $5 for a sandwich or $7 for a meal which includes a sandwich, two sides and a drink.

Homer Lake is hosting an Owl Prowl for all ages at 6 p.m. at the Homer Lake Interpretive Center. Why prowl for owls in February? More owls can be found in Champaign County during the winter months, and some species breed during this time. That means we have a good chance of hearing or seeing a live owl in the wild! Participants will get a chance to dissect owl pellets and take them home! This program begins indoors with a presentation, and then we will hit the trails to call and search for owls! Register early for this popular program. All ages. $5 per person; children two and under are free. For more info: (217) 896-2455 or jwick@ccfpd.org.

Feb. 9
The St. Joseph Middle School 8th grade Boys Basketball Team will take on Dunlap Valley Middle School in the Elite 8 on Feb. 9 at 2:30 p.m. at Unity Junior High. Go support the Panthers!

Feb. 10
Chambanamoms.com has awesome playdates for kids and their families.
On Sunday they will host an indoor playdate at the Illinois Women’s Basketball Game presented by Christie Clinic. The event will take place at the State Farm Center from 2 to 4 p.m.
General admission tickets are $3 at the door. The Illini will take on the Wisconsin Badgers. Plus, it’s the best possible playdate to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day!
