Today

* Volunteers are needed for Western Avenue School's annual Spring Sale, scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the school, 1500 S. Western Ave. in Geneva. Twenty-five volunteers are needed from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. today to help take the items that our sellers drop off and get them out to the floor for display. Some will be working in toys, but most will be distributing clothes to their properly designated racks, according to size. Fifteen volunteers are needed from 8 to 10 a.m. Friday to perform the same tasks as mentioned above for Thursday night. Thirty volunteers are needed from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, covering various duties. Seven teams of two people are needed to work the cash registers during the actual sale. Others will be needed to work in the ticket room, separating tickets by seller number. Also, others are needed to monitor the actual floor during the sale to help keep things orderly and help customers. Three to five dads are needed from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday to help work the DAD PATROL. These dads will work in conjunction with a Geneva police officer to help ensure things are running smoothly at the entrance of the sale in addition to monitoring the parking lot. Twenty volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to help finish the sale and to "tear down" the sale. All items will need to be taken down and redistributed according to seller number so the sellers are guaranteed that their items are ready for pick up at 3 p.m. same day. For details, call the school office (630) 463-3500.

* Volunteer with the Teen Advisory Group and receive GIVE hours and pizza, too, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. today at Geneva Public Library, 127 James St. In honor of Teen Tech Week 2012, Geneva's Teen Advisory Group will be taking on Aurora Library's Teen Advisory Board in a game of virtual Jeopardy on March 8.

Friday

* Saints Peter & Paul Church in Virgil will hold its annual Lenten Fish Fries from 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays, to March 30, at the church, Route 64 and Meredith Road.

Saturday

* The St. Charles Singers, led by Jeffrey Hunt, and the Metropolis Chamber Orchestra will bring the newest installment of their Mozart Journey concert series to St. Charles and Chicago in March. Mozart Journey is an ambitious multiyear initiative during which audiences will hear the complete sacred choral music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Each concert in the series is seasoned with selected Mozart instrumental works for variety and to provide context for the choral works. "Mozart Journey IV: Teenage Mozart," a concert spotlighting music from the composer's late teen and early adult years, will take place at 8 p.m. Saturday at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, 307 Cedar Ave., St. Charles; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago. Audiences will hear Mozart motets, a short mass, and two graceful and charming instrumental works composed for light entertainment but challenging to play. All of the choral works will be accompanied by the chamber orchestra. The shorter choral pieces are rarely performed and will be discoveries for many listeners. Single tickets for "Mozart Journey IV: Teenage Mozart" are $40 adult general admission, $30 for seniors, and $10 for students. Tickets are available at www.stcharlessingers.com or by calling (630) 513-5272. Tickets also are available at Townhouse Books, 105 N. Second Ave., St. Charles; checks or cash only at this ticket venue. Tickets also may be purchased at the door on the day of the concert, depending on availability.
