(All ages are welcome to participate in programming)

Otto Dick, Ogle County Historian January 30, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
Mr. Otto Dick, Ogle County Historian brings his wealth of knowledge to Rock River Center on Wed., Jan. 30, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
He is aware of the many things have happened in Oregon and Ogle County since John Phelps founded Oregon in 1836.  Otto plans to share with us his favorite photos that he has collected over the years.
His recent activities in Oregon include serving as President of the Riverside Cemetery, Past President of the Historical Society and working to establish a museum at the Oregon Depot.  Writing 369 history articles for the Republican Reporter is definitely a challenge for Otto.  He does this with the help of his partner, Marilyn.
We hope you join us as Otto shares his favorite collection of history.  Reservations required by Jan. 29th.
Call 815-732-3252 if you plan on attending.  Refreshments will be served.
