November 19 at 2:00 Program:
Speaker: Mr. Ron Koehn
This will be a curbside message. We ask that residents put the material out on Monday and we will work through the town through the week. (Typically we are done in a couple days, but with staffing and vacations we appreciate the extra time to get it done.) Once the crew completes an area they will not come back, so it is important for people to put items out on Monday.
The Story Behind the American Pie
With Thanksgiving approaching and then Christmas, we naturally think of family gatherings around the table which normally end in dessert. Traditionally, this includes some type of favorite pie. But do we truly know the story behind the pie? Catherine Lambrecht will share the history and insight as to where and when this idea of the American Pie derived. She is an expert on family heirloom recipes. Catherine will demonstrate how these recipes are passed from generation to generation with the ability to engender feelings of comfort and catalyze memories. As a veteran of culinary competitions in Lake County and Illinois State Fairs, Catherine is the founder of Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance and is associated with other Culinary Historians. Volunteer millers of de Immigrant Windmill will be hosting this program at the Windmill Cultural Center at 111- 10 th Avenue Fulton, IL on Wednesday, November 15 at 6:00pm. Light refreshments will be offered following the program. The facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. This event is free and open to the public. Monthly programming is made possible by grants through the Illinois Humanities and F.A.C.E. / DS Flikkema Foundation.
