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.
Join us for a “members only” open house at the Colonel Palmer House and celebrate the opening of two new exhibits – “The Faces of Education” and “A Peek at the 20s”. Refreshments will be served. This is a private, invitation only event.
