SCHOOL’S OUT:  CELEBRATING PRESIDENT’S DAY WITH FIRST LADY MARY LINCOLN

Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 1-2:30 p.m.

Come celebrate President’s Day with us and Abraham Lincoln’s First Lady, Mary Lincoln! Even though the Abe won’t be there, we’re going to have a party for ourselves and for the President’s recent birthday! Beginning at 1 p.m., Mary Lincoln, as portrayed by Pam Brown (https://livingmarylincoln.com/) will talk about her life as the wife of our 16th president and the antics of their children. Birthday cake will be served to celebrate Lincoln’s recent birthday and visitors will have an opportunity to take their picture with the First Lady following the presentation! Be sure to visit us again on March 7th as we open our exhibit How Long Must Women Wait? Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights in Champaign County and learn about more leading ladies from our history! All ages. FREE. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or ksnyder@ccfpd.org.
