Harlem Rockets come to Danville! May 31st at 6:30pm

The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible showtime basketball skills and family-friendly comedy will face the Danville Dream Team in a game benefiting "Be the Change", a student empowerment group focused on promoting a positive school culture at Danville.

Having played over 2500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the long range accuracy of “General Electric” Junie Sanders. Satiated by the extraordinary tricks and ball-handling skills of Solomom Bamira, a former Harlem Globetrotter. The building will be rocking with the thunderous dunks of the high-flying “Jet Blue” Cliff Malone.

And since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the All Time Funny Man and one of Show Basketball’s Greats……. James “Speedy" Williams, who was featured in the movie, “Above The Rim” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin. Speedy was also one of the Original Nike Free-Style Ballers in a Nike Commercial. And, Speedy performed live at the MTV Music Awards while Jay Z did his thing.

The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.

Important Traffic Reminder

As the snow melts, our parking lot slowly returns to its normal state. The drop off and pickup line has been growing once again, so I'd like to offer a few key reminders:

- If you're at the front, please pull all the way up, just past the door.

- Please feel free to drop off your children anywhere along the gym sidewalk. Staff members are nearby and will keep an eye on those walking up the sidewalk, and it will make the whole process quicker for those behind you. Once your kids are on their way, feel free to use your mirror and pull away from the curb - if you've been asked to wait in past years, there's no need now.

- If you need to get out of your car, please pull all the way forward or park in one of the visitor spots. Lately, there has been a long line down the road, and open space in front of the school.

Your continued commitment to making this a community effort will keep traffic flowing smoothly, and minimize the wait for those behind you.
