Tazewell County Genealogical and Historical Society will meet at 7 p.m. Aug. 14 at the Ehrlicher Research Center, 719 N. 11th St., Pekin.

Claudie Huey, a native-born Pekinite, will present Where in the world is it? It's in Pekin!—a slide program showing many buildings, facilities, institutions, and other landmarks in the city of Pekin.  

Huey is  a graduate of Pekin Community High School and Bradley University, and a long-time teacher in Pekin Public School District No. 108.  Many of you may know Claudie from her extensive work as a community volunteer and as the owner and operator of B & M Photographic Studio in Pekin (with her husband Steve).

This presentation will be unique and fun, testing your knowledge and memory of the history of Pekin.  

You will gain a great appreciation for some of the architectural beauty and detail of many of the featured subjects.

The program is open to the public.  A short business meeting will follow.
