School’s Out: Happy Birthday, President Lincoln! 

Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Come celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday with the man himself. On this 50th day of the year, in the 50th year for the museum, we’re going to have a party for ourselves and for the president!  Abraham Lincoln (portrayed by Actor Kevin Wood) will answer our burning questions:  What was it like growing up in a log cabin? Just how tall was Abraham Lincoln, anyway? And why did he wear that tall silk hat? Birthday cake will be served; crafts and family activities fill out the celebration. All ages. FREE. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or
