Join us for a brief annual business meeting, followed by a presentation from CLHS Board Member, Kurt Pearson.  Learn how Oak struggled to get established, prospered during the Great Depression, was awarded for its war efforts during WWII, and created a family atmosphere where people were important. Then go on a tour of what came to be called Plant #1, corporate headquarters of Oak Industries, the largest employer in McHenry County.  Light refreshments following presentation.
