Press release submitted by Bishop Hill Heritage Association|
The BHHA is proud to announce that it has recently received a grant of $9,100 from the Illinois Arts Council (IAC). This money is designated for operating expenses in 2014. The Heritage uses this funding to pay for events that it sponsors or supports. For example, the grant money was used for Ag Days, Lucia Nights, the Astrid Lindgren Festival, Rarely Seen Treasures from the Attic exhibit, Midsommar Music Festival, the Bishop Hill Chautauqua, and artisan demonstrations. The BHHA is very thankful for the continued generous support given by the Illinois Arts Council.
