[ARCHIVED] Montgomery Bicentennial Musical Program and Senior Lunch on April 10th


At 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 10th, the Village of Montgomery will host a free Illinois Bicentennial musical program at the Village Hall, 200 N. River Street.  Bucky Halker will present “Booth Shot Lincoln:  Folksongs of Illinois 1818 to 1960.” Bucky is an accomplished guitarist, singer and songwriter.  He will share some of Illinois’ rich and diverse folk music traditions from the beginnings of Illinois statehood through 1960.  People of all ages are invited to help celebrate this bicentennial year by enjoying the folk music legacy of the Land of Lincoln.

The event is free and handicapped accessible, and is suitable for all ages.  This program was made possible through a grant by the Illinois Humanities, which is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Illinois General Assembly, as well as by contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations.

The monthly Senior Lunch and activity for ages 55 will begin at 11:00 a.m. after the program.  There is a $4 cost for the lunch and pre-registration by April 3rd is required.
