Virgil "Sunny" Julian, owner of Eco-Energia and 1945 graduate of Northeast High School, donated a solar panel system to Nueva Vida Church, 141 N. Lawndale Ave. Cost of the solar panel system and installation totaled about $100,000, but Eco-Energia's "Community Connection Program" footed the bill. "It feels good to give back," said Julian. "I decided that years ago in my life, my function for being here on earth was to make it easier for other people."
The Southwest High School class of 1994 will host their 20th year reunion this summer, July 18-20 at Ameristar Casino. The cost is $125 per person or $175 per couple (spouse or significant other only). Find payment and event details at www.facebook.com/southwest.ninetyfour.
