SCHS Annual Meeting and Dinner

  • June 25, 2013
  • 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Westminster Presbyterian Church, 535 Walnut Ave., Springfield, IL


Registration is closed

The Sangamon County Historical Society will hold its annual meeting and dinner at the historic Westminster Presbyterian Church, 535 Walnut Ave. at 5:30 pm on June 25. 

The evening will feature elections, awards, an auction of historic artifacts, and a special tribute to the late Doug Pokorski, a veteran reporter for the State Journal-Register, who led the Society from 2002-2003. 

Traditionally, the Society invites the president of the organization from a decade earlier to give the keynote address.  That honor would have gone to Pokorski, who died from a heart attack in April, 2003, at age 53, two months short of the end of his presidential term.  Six of Pokorski's close friends and colleagues will share brief reminiscences of the popular president, who was not only highly regarded by fellow members, but also by his journalistic colleagues around the country.  Speakers will include Kathryn Harris, Mike Kienzler, David Brady, Curtis Mann, Dr. Virgilio Pilapil, and Richard Hart

Tickets are $30 per person.  Reservations can be made online or by filling out the form on page 7 of the June issue of Historico.
