New Teacher Breakfast 2019

Yorkville Chamber Businesses Welcome New Teachers


Special thank you to Linda Bell, Songs of Life Photography Studio for photographing the event.
Thank you also to Becky Mokelke, Becky Mokelke Photography for supplemental photos.

When the Yorkville School District hires new teachers each year, many of them are new not only to the school district but to our community as well. To welcome and introduce them to area businesses and services, the Yorkville Chamber invited the newly-hired teachers to its 11th Annual New Teacher Breakfast, held August 5 at Whitetail Ridge Golf Club.

Tables at the venue featured creative centerpieces designed by sponsoring businesses and won by teachers. Additionally, each teacher received gift cards, special recognition, and “goody bags” filled with gifts and promotional items from more than 45 supporting businesses.
