Illinois Valley Democratic Women banquet

PERU — The first-ever Maryann McCormick Service and Leadership Award Banquet will be March 8 at the Peru Eagles, Route 6, east end of Peru. The event is being held to honor a woman of the Illinois Valley who gave service and leadership to the Democrat party.

There will be a presentation about the Radium Girls. These girls, through their suffering, were very helpful in establishing laws that hold employers responsible for their actions.

The keynote speaker will be Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon.

The event begins with cocktails at 6 p.m.; dinner is at 7 p.m.
