Members of the Windy City Winnies
I just returned from our Illinois Indians Winnebago-Itasca State Club Rally....It was held at the Iroquois County Fairgrounds.
The weekend included several tours to different local area sites . I attended a tour to Pontiac in which we walked through their historic downtown, Old city Hall and Firehouse, Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum, Livingston County War Museum, historic courthouse, and finally "All Aboard" their Jolly Trolley for a ride to visit historic homes, and their many parks . We also had lunch at the Old Log Cabin, built in 1926.
Back at the fairgrounds they offered a number of activities we could do. I attended a jewelry making craft session and made earrings and a bracelet. I also played Bean Bag Baseball and was on the team that won 1st. place. There was a craft contests, a flea market, craft sales, silent auctions, 50/50 raffles, and a money hat to win.
The theme for the weekend was the 50's, so many dressed up in poodle skirts, turned up collars, scarfs and saddle shoes. The event ended with root beer floats and ice cream sundaes.
