GIVEAWAY on DECEMBER 2, 9, 16 at GALLERY ON GALENA!
The first Saturday of the month is rolling around again, and TiskHistSoc is inviting you to stop by the Gallery on Galena (as well as the Museum on Main) anytime between 10:00 and 1:00 on December 2nd.
As many of you read in the December Wapsipinicon, there's a brand new display of more than 100 Tiskilwa High School trophies & plaques at the MoM, plus a dozen more at the Village Office. Following much deliberation, the T-H-S board decided to offer the remaining 80+ to be "adopted" by Tiskilwa High School alumni.
The photos show volunteer helpers, Jazzlyn DePauw and Jasmine Whitford, hard at work to make all the mementos -- from sports, music, and other activities -- shiny clean and easily visible.
We've arranged these reminders of THS's glory days in the lower level of the Gallery on Galena. Come on down December 2, 9, or 16 to select your favorites. If you can't make it on one of those dates, give Ed a call at 815.646.4016. Also, if you have high school buddies who are outta-towners and would enjoy a keepsake, (maybe a surprise Christmas gift??) grab a couple for them, too!
After filling walls and shelves in the south and east walls of Museum on Main's Gallery 2, we decided it was better for the remaining trophies to travel home with THS alums rather than reside in the GoG basement.
Thanks to Kelly Johnson and Kenny Fisher for providing safekeeping for them at Kelly's Place for 23 years!
