Tiskilwa Historical Society invites community to Walk Tiskilwa on Dec. 10

Town-wide activities will be available

A couple of residents of Tiskilwa Farms Alpacas will be greeting visitors on St. Mary’s church lawn during Walk Tiskilwa on December 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Sometimes they need a little extra encouragement to pose from their owner Bob Sash.

The Tiskilwa Historical Society invites the community to catch the spirit and Walk Tiskilwa from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.

Several organizations and businesses will be hosting holiday activities along a festively decorated Main Street and beyond.

New this year, all three guest houses, 140 East, the Sugar Maple Inn and the Tiskilwa Inn B&B, will be open for tours.

A dozen vendors will be set up in the library’s community room and alpacas will be set up in St. Mary’s Church lawn. Santa will be welcoming visitors at the Community Church surrounded by homemade baked goods.

The Waca Brothers’ Lionel Train Set will be set up around a small tree in Gallery 1 at the Museum on Main and Nancy Harmon will set up her collection of calendars with local photographers for sale or collection; if prepaid.

At 1:15 p.m., Harmon will present a brief program of seasonal photography from the Tiskilwa area in the community room at Museum on Main. Prior to the program, winners of the tree decorating contest and raffle drawings will be announced.
