Illinois Bicentennial celebration has begun
On Monday, December 4 at noon, the Village joined other governmental agencies around the state in a simultaneous flag raising to kick off the state’s bicentennial. August 26, 2018 will mark the 200th anniversary for the adoption of the Illinois Constitution of 1818 at the Kaskaskia Convention, and December 3, 2018 will mark the 200th anniversary of the admission of Illinois into the Union as a state.
