Tiskilwa Historical Society prepares for the new year

TISKILWA — The Tiskilwa Historical Society will be taking down Christmas decoration from 11 a.m. to noon Monday. All members of the community are invited to help.

Tiskilwa Historical Society's Museum on Main will remain open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 2p.m. every Saturday. The museum will keep the display of Lionel and Marx train up until Jan. 28. The trains are on loan from four local men.

The society's schedule of free public programming will resume on March 10 with a Mardi Gras program.

Any member of the community with ideas for future programs can make suggestions to any member of the board of directors. They meet the first Monday of each month. The 2014 board members are Ed Waca, Judy Wright, Stan Bensen, Jan Lohaus, Gail McCauley, Betty Brokaw, Charlie Waca, Jean Cavada and Dick Fisher.

Society members will be updating the displays and membership data and putting together a 2013 scrapbook of articles about the society's activities. To help, call Cecille Gerber at 815-646-4353.
