4th of July Bingo Event

Join the Historical Society for some festive fun on the 4th of July!  We are happy to once again sponsor Bingo during the Warrenville July 4th Celebration.  Bingo kicks off at 2:00pm on Wednesday, July 4th at Cerny Park.  Participants will have the chance to win prizes, including a copy of one of Leone Schmidt’s wonderful history books about our very own community.  We hope to see you all there!  The Historical Society would also like to extend a big THANK YOU to Sandy Hendricks for organizing this wonderful event!

If you aren’t able to join us on the 4th, but are interested in learning more about our organization or Leone’s local history book collection, please stop by the Warrenville Historical Museum & Art Gallery during our summer open hours on Wednesdays and Sundays from 1-4pm through the month of August.  We are a free institution and love to welcome interested guests!  During the summer months you can also pick up one of Leone’s publications from our museum bookstore at our discounted summer sale prices.  Please contact us with any questions: 630-393-4215 or info@warrenvillehistorical.org.

We hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!
