A Taste of Archives
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: University Archives, Malpass Library 6th Floor
Description: Join the University Archives for an evening of local (historical) flavor. Attendees will enjoy both delicious food and a presentation on local history. The theme of this year's dinner is beekeeping: former University Archivist Jeff Hancks will discuss the Icarians' penchant for beekeeping, and Dan Yoder, Chair of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Administration, will present on contemporary beekeeping.

While learning about the history of beekeeping in western Illinois, attendees will dine on a menu of honey-themed dishes, with honey mead as an accompaniment. There will also be a cash bar.

Advance registration is required; tickets are $50 per person. For more information or to RSVP, contact Suzanne Woodward at S-Woodward@wiu.edu or 309/298-2356. Those interested may also RSVP at wiu.com/alumni.
