So you're ok with those two drunk drivers continuing their journey...and possibly injuring or killing someone? All because you think these enforcement checks are a waste of time? Good thing you're not in public office.

Here's an idea: Tie in-state tuition at all state universities to the per-student expenditures in a student's district. Alternatively, make it inversely proportional to the percentage of district funding provided (on paper) by the state.

100th Anniversary of the Show Barn CANCELLED

1 year, 11 months ago by

On Saturday, October 6th, the public is invited to a celebration for the Show Barn at Windsong Acres, near Camp Point

Due to the weather, this event has been cancelled.

On Saturday, October 6th, the public is invited to a 100th Anniversary Celebration for the Show Barn at Windsong Acres, near Camp Point Illinois.  The unique and historic barn, built by Clarence and Cora Dickhut in 1912 and renovated by Jeff & Shelly Rasche in recent years, is an Adams County landmark and is currently being considered for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.  Admission is free; donations are welcome and will help maintain the barn for the future.  Visitors may wish to bring lawn chairs.

Old-fashioned games for children will begin at 3:00 p.m.  Between 4:00-7:00 p.m., the celebration will feature music by local singers and groups, tours of both barns at Windsong Acres, photos of the barn restoration process, antique tractors, cars, and antique farm artifacts, and demonstrations by members of the Adams County Olde Tyme Association.   Food and refreshments will be available throughout the event.

All guests will have the opportunity to sign a wood plank that will be added to the barn to commemorate the 100th Anniversary Celebration, and a group photo of all who wish to pose with the barn will be taken at approximately 6:00 p.m.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m., the Silver Dollar Square Dancers from Quincy will demonstrate square dancing. Guests are invited to grab a partner and join in the fun.

Windsong Acres is located at 2121 E. 2400th Street, Camp Point, IL, which is two miles north of Camp Point and one mile east.  The barn is visible just one mile due west of Camp Point Central High School.  Detailed directions and more information is available at www.ShellyRasche.com
