Infinity Event in memory of Maggie and Amos (Rosko) Meyer set for June 8 

Yearly event has raised $43,000


CHANA — An Infinity Event in Memory of Maggie and Amos (Rosko) Meyer is set for Saturday, June 8 at the Rochelle Wildlife Conservation Club.  This yearly event hosted by The Maggie & Amos Foundation features something for all to enjoy including live music, a corn hole bags tournament, live and silent auctions, free kids activities, a scavenger hunt, beer garden, a trail run, and much more.  

The Maggie & Amos Foundation was created in 2017 following the tragic loss of Maggie and Amos (Rosko) Meyer in October of 2016.  Maggie, a special education teacher at Chana Education Center, used her creativity and imaginative personality to engage students in out-of-the-box learning in her classroom. Students never knew quite what to expect coming to her classroom every day, but they did know they were loved and cared for in her classroom. Three-year-old Amos had the adventurous heart of his mom and was eager to join in on any spontaneous adventure with curiosity and enthusiasm.  

After the loss of these two cherished individuals, Maggie’s colleagues and students created the nonprofit foundation to carry on the legacy of innovation that Maggie sparked in her classroom. Proceeds from their yearly Infinity Event have contributed towards local library programs, scholarships, and community classroom grants in the amount of $43,000.

This year’s event will be held on the beautiful grounds of the Rochelle Wildlife Conservation Club located at 3501 S. Sweeney Road in Chana.  The day’s schedule of events are:
