Olympic skater to return for celebration in Evanston

Olympic speed skating gold medalist Shani Davis is scheduled to be back in Evanston later this month for a round of events celebrating his victory.

Evanston Recreation Director Doug Gaynor says Mr. Davis has agreed to appear at the next City Council meeting at 8:30 p.m. on Monday, March 27.

Mr. Gaynor said the Olympian will also return to the Robert Crown Center, where he spent years training for his sport, for a reception at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 31.

The Chicago Tribune has details on the skating event this weekend in Calgary that has delayed the Evanston homecoming.
