The Troy Craughwell Elementary School staff, members of Joliet Pink Heals, and Joliet Fire Department No. 8 recently surprised Craughwell librarian Joyce Forlenzo to celebrate Forlenzo’s triumph over her battle with breast cancer.

The day was already scheduled as the school’s “P Day” in its ABC Countdown, and staff changed it to “Pink Day.” Students and staff wore pink to school.

The fire department brought its “Addison Truck,” which is named after Craughwell teacher Erin Locke’s daughter, who passed away from cancer.
