Society hosts Members’ Night

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

UNION – Get a sneak peek at the McHenry County Historical Society’s new “Members’ Only” exhibit from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday at the society’s museum, 6422 Main St.

The exhibit, on loan from some of the members’ private collections, will not open to the public until May 5.

But current members, as well as those who join that night, can see an array of items while enjoying free refreshments.

There also will be an opportunity to one’s memberships for the 2013-14 season – including a new two-year membership. 

Attendees also will be able to say farewell to office manager Nancy Irwin, who is retiring after 11 years, and learn about the things planned for the museum’s 50th year.

For information, call 815-923-2267 or visit www.gothistory.org.
