May 20-Members Outing! (CANCELLED) Lincoln’s New Salem State Park


May 20, 2017– Outing! Lincoln’s New Salem State Park

On May 20, 2017, we are planning an outing to New Salem Park. The park is located North West of Springfield by Petersburg. It opens at 9:00 AM. If you have never been to New Salem it is an early 1840’S town loaded with cabins, shops, craftsmen, farms, and people in period dress. They are very willing to pose for you. There is no admission fee but the suggested donation is $4.00. They also have a concession available for lunch.

We will meet at the parking lot on Perry across from the First United Methodist Church at 7:45 AM and leave at 8:00 AM. We will car pool and caravan from there. It takes approximately an hour and a half to get there. For those who want breakfast first we will meet at the Metro Center 50’s Diner at 6:30 AM.

If you have any questions call Carl Close at 274-5103, 339-6112 Cell, or email
