Public invited to 'history night' at Bald Knob Cross of Peace

The public is invited to a "History Information Night" at Bald Knob Cross on Nov. 5.

The Board of Directors of the Bald Knob Cross of Peace in Alto Pass, Ill. invite the public to the event in preparation for the development of the new historical exhibition.

This event is being held to gather stories, as well as written information, that the community would like to share so they can more fully capture the history of, and the community's involvement in, the journey of Bald Knob Cross.

Considering there will be several decades covered throughout the exhibition, attendees are encouraged to bring any items (objects, letters, photographs, etc.) they wish to donate to the Cross, or allow copies to be made. 

Attendees are also encouraged to come bearing stories with their memories and experiences of the Cross' journey. 

This event will take place in the Welcome Center from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided for all who attend.

For more information please email directory@baldknobcross.com or call 618-521-1917.
