At noon on Monday, December 4, 2017, the Village will host an Illinois Bicentennial Flag Raising Ceremony at the flagpole in front of Village Hall. All are invited to attend and participate in the launch of what is to be a year-long celebration of our state's 200th birthday. Simultaneous events are being held at municipal buildings throughout Illinois.
The event will include a Mayoral Proclamation and ceremonial raising of the Illinois Bicentennial Flag. Members of the Downers Grove Choral Society will also sing the Illinois state song. Light refreshments including pumpkin pie, the official state pie of Illinois, will be served following the event.
Please join us and be part of the photos that will be archived by the State for this once in a lifetime event.
