Come & See the Sands of Time Flow Back Through Time

Palatine Public Library

May 16th at 7 p.m.

We had a great turnout for this video presentation.  Thank you for coming to see this program that took a lot of work by Joe Petykowski and, of course, the actors in the video.

Two scholarship checks were awarded by the Historical Society to two high school students before the program.  Tim Moran of Fremd and Paige Kawiecki of Palatine High were this year’s winners.  Congratulations to both of you.
