Celebrate the life and work of Congressman Lane Evans

Please join us on Tuesday, November 3 at Lavender Crest Winery in Colona, Illinois. This special event, starting at 6:00 p.m., featuring a special program about Lane Evan's life and work. We are honored to welcome former U.S. Representative Phil Hare, special guest speaker.
