On March 11, over 30 people visited with former Illinois Governor Jim Edgar at a reception in the Steeple Building.  This event was organized and hosted by the BHHA.  The Governor’s visit received extensive coverage in the local newspapers, including the Kewanee Star Courier and the Galva News.  Please check out our website’s photo gallery, under the About section, for reception photographs taken by Lou Lourdeau.
