2014 Special Guest Speaker: Mark McDonald

From Decatur to Jacksonville, through Lincoln’s footsteps in Springfield and New Salem, from the river heritage in Quincy and Hannibal, to the bounty of the richest farmland on earth, Mark McDonald, host of Illinois Stories takes us through the Central Illinois we thought we knew.

Mark has worked in television and media relations for more than thirty years as a news reporter and anchor, public affairs specialist, and now as an Emmy award-winning chronicler of life in central and west central Illinois. Mark says his favorite job through the years has been being the host of Illinois Stories. In May of 2013 Mark filmed an Illinois Stories segment on Western Illinois Threshers’ School Days and followed that with a segment on the 100th Anniversary of the Keokuk/Hamilton Powerhouse and Dam.

Come and enjoy Mark in person at Western Illinois Threshers Saturday,
