ILLINOIS BEGINS BICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
Today at noon, the Village joined municipalities and counties throughout the state in an Illinois Bicentennial Flag Raising Ceremony. As Illinois approaches its 200th year of statehood, the ceremony was used to help kick off a yearlong celebration that will pay tribute to the people, places, and things that are being born, built, and grown in our state. The celebration will culminate on December 3, 2018, when Illinois will be officially 200 years old.
The State has created a website Illinois200.com which features high points in our State's history, a listing of signature events and projects, and additional information on ways to participate in the celebration.
