Start the New Year LOCAL!The event celebrates the growth of the Macomb Food Co-op in 2017 including the addition of Grab & Go food, several new local producers, and a multitude of new products. Their 211 South McArthur Street location has become an important hub connecting local producers with the community. The Co-op is a place where both owners and the general public can find the best selection of chemical and antibiotic free, sustainably harvested and humanely grown food. During the event, food that is available from the Co-op and local producers will be served, and members of the Co-op will provide information about the organization and share their goals for 2018.
This event marks the closing of the exhibit, As Advertised: A History of Local Advertising. The Western Illinois Museum celebrates local history and the belief that knowing the past will inform the decisions we make for our future. The museum works passionately to collect area’s treasures and discover their significance. In 2017 over 2,800 visitors enjoyed the museum’s exhibits and programs.
