Registration is closed
The Sangamon County Historical Society will hold its annual meeting and dinner at the historic Sangamo Club on June 17.  

The evening will feature elections, awards, and an auction of historic artifacts.  

Traditionally, the Society invites the president of the organization from a decade earlier to give the keynote address.  This year, that honor goes to Kathryn Harris, Director of Library Services for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library (formerly the Illinois State Historical Library).  

Harris joined the ISHL staff in 1990 as Supervisor of Reference and Technical Services and was named ISHL Director in 1996.  With the opening of the ALPL in 2004, Harris assumed her current role. In addition to her work with the library, Harris has appeared on stage as Sadie Delany in local productions of "Having our Say," and as Elizabeth Keckley in "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln."  In addition, Harris frequently portrays abolitionist, humanitarian, and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman for school and community groups.  

Tickets are $30 per person.  Reservations can be made online or by filling out the form on page 8 of the May issue of Historico.  You must register for the dinner by June 10th.
