Among those groups that will be at the fair are We Care, RAMP, Illinois Lakes Management Association, Southeast Asian Studies Club, Ebony women, NIU CAUSE, Judson Fellowship, Consumer Advocacy Council of Dekalb County, Voluntary Action Center and the Walcamp Outdoor Ministries and Retreat Center.

We want this to be an opportunity for everyone to get in one space, talk to each other and hopefull it will be a catalyst for future endeavors.”
