Did you know that Springfield is honoring its hometown hero by cutting its very own corn maze – Abe’s Corn Maze will be cut out of 10 acres of corn field and feature over 3 miles of twists and turns. Or that Ravinia commissioned two works in his honor; one by Bill T. Jones, the renowned choreographer, and the other by music legend Ramsey Lewis?
Would you like to know what Abraham Lincoln wrote, said or did exactly two hundred years ago on October 21, 1808? How do Lincoln’s words, thoughts and deeds influence us as we pursue the honorable cause of community engagement and corporate responsibility?
Join us as Terry Scrogum discusses these ideas and tells us more about the celebratory activities to commemorate the life of Abraham Lincoln planned by the Illinois Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, in collaboration with communities, agencies and individuals throughout Illinois.
