Salute to Veterans on November 11 in Tiskilwa with Open House, Online Tour
On Wednesday, November 11, Tiskilwa Historical Society’s traditional Salute to Veterans will take on a different look. On that day, both virtual and in-person tours of Gallery on Galena will be available online and at 550 North Galena, Tiskilwa.
Those who can arrange to see the Gallery “up-close and personal” may come on down to Tiskilwa’s Gallery on Galena on Wednesday, November 11, between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. The society asks that visitors wear a facial covering and observe social distancing while in the Gallery. Paper masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
The 15-minute virtual tour has been recorded at the Gallery in the past few days. On Tuesday evening, a link for the YouTube video will be posted on Tiskilwa Historical Society’s Facebook page as well FB’s “Remember Tiskilwa” and at its website, tiskilwahistoricalsociety.org. The society is hoping that a large virtual “crowd” will view the Gallery tour from home, in addition to the folks who can stop by in person.
Anyone who would like to visit either the Gallery or the Museum on Main at a different time may call Cecille Gerber at 815.646.4353.
