Besides the BHHA activities that we will be sponsoring April 5 for Spring Jubilee, other organizations and businesses are also hosting some great events:

  • Visit local merchants for free seed packets and to sign up to win one of two Bishop Hill Baskets.  These baskets are located at the Welcome Center and created by the BHAC.
  • For your gardening needs, the Bishop Hill Arts Council is sponsoring Ask the Gardening Experts.  From 10 to 11 a.m. at the Welcome Center, several local gardeners will be available to answer your questions and have items available to purchase.
  • Sweet Annie Primitives will be having an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  They will also be giving tours of their home, the 1855 Colony Apartment Building.
  • Also don’t forget about the BHHA.  The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is sponsoring several free baseball related events to celebrate MLB’s Opening Weekend.   All-American Girls Pro Baseball League items will be on display all day at the Steeple Building.  1:30 p.m. at the Dairy Building, author Barbara Gregorich will present When Women Played Baseball.  At 3:30 p.m., there will be a public showing of A League of Their Own in the Steeple Building.  Popcorn
    will be served at the movie.
