Ginsey Campbell shows off one of our ornament kits that the museum had for sell at last nights Christmas on Court. We sold the kits for .50 cents. We had our display inside the Tazewell County Courthouse as usual.

Our theme display was items from Christmas past. Gayle Gettman shows one of the books, A Christmas Prayer book.

We would like to thank everyone who came out to our display and hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas on Court festivities. Don't forget to visit the Tazewell County Museum located in the Sunset Hills shopping plaza located at 2950 Court Street in Pekin. A special thank to Pat Moser, Barbara Tidaback, and Gayle Gettman who manned the display last night.
