HENNEPIN — The 2012 annual program of the Putnam County Historical Society will be Sunday at the United Methodist Church in Hennepin.

John Lynn will present "The Prairie State Primer." He has walked and canoed the length of Illinois, bicycled across it twice, hiked more than 6,000 miles of the state's park and nature trails, and visited and photographed all of its 2,400 cities, towns and villages. He has distilled this experience into an entertaining and informative slide show tour of the unique features, attractions and heritage of the Prairie State.

Dinner will be served family style at 5:30 p.m. followed by the program at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased from any board member or at any of the banks in the county.
