This Week's Events
Central Library, Des Moines
David Skidmore, professor of political science at Drake University discusses how Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution was about much more than the rules governing the selection of the city’s next chief executive.
Economic inequality, clashes of political and cultural identity and the workability of the “one country, two systems” bargain played roles in the mass protests of fall, 2014. Students and their supporters have emptied the streets, but the issues that gave rise to the Umbrella Revolution continue to roil the city.
Ankeny First United Methodist Church, Ankeny
Sheltered Reality will be performing on a float in the Ankeny Summerfest Parade, and then perform at the Ankeny First United Methodist Church. The church is just a short walk from Hawkeye Park and the parade route.
Sheltered Reality believes that Music can have Meaning, yet be a blast at the same time! SR uses drums set to music, as well as choreography to motivate audiences to realize that anyone, at any age, can dream and succeed.
During the performance you will learn their Steps of Success, get the chance to succeed through a drum lesson, and have the opportunity to perform with them!
Ankeny First UMC will be serving free hot dogs, chips and cold drink to the first 500 visitors. Booths and children's activities will be on-going.
