UNION – Do you have a pre-1970 item in good condition that you would be willing to donate to a good cause?

If so, you have the perfect item for the antique auction at the McHenry County Historical Society’s Heritage Fair. Previously donated items include antique furniture and furnishings, quilts, vintage toys, kitchen collectibles and stained-glass lamps.

Items donated for the auction can be eligible for a tax deduction.

Funds raised by this annual event are used to operate an award-winning countywide historical museum, provide student and adult educational programs and encourage countywide efforts at historical preservation.

To donate antiques and collectibles by July 8, call the historical society at 815-923-2267 or email
