Since its December open house, the Crescent City Historical Society has featured a display of the symbols of Christmas. Along with that, a “What Is It?” item (shown here) was also displayed for visitors to try to identify the item and give its use. Several guesses were entered but only three had the correct answer, so those were entered in a drawing. The winner of a Casey’s gift card was Dolores Pfingsten of Watseka, who correctly identified the microphone. The CCHS is located in the upstairs of city hall, 400 Main Street, and is open 1-3 p.m. the first Sunday of each month. For more information on the group, contact Jean Herron at 815-683-2560.
