Perry Memeorial Hospital Retirees Breakfast @ Princeton Truck Stop
Dec 1 @ 9:00 am
IVCC Theatre Department – “Jingle All the Way – A Holiday Jubilee!” @ IVCC Cultural Centre
Dec 1 @ 7:30 pm

Illinois Valley Community College’s Theatre department will present “Jingle All the Way – A Holiday Jubilee!” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday Dec. 1-3 and 8-10 in the Cultural Centre.

Featuring well-known holiday music, the cast sings and dances their way through many genres of the holiday: pop, standard, and show tunes, and works in comedy and audience involvement. The man of the season, Santa, appears throughout the show to bring an extra dose of holiday cheer.

The show begins with high-energy production numbers, then visits the 1950s for an Oldies holiday, the west for a Country Christmas, and even gives a nod to Radio city Music Hall. Pop music is not overlooked (such as Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”), and classic holiday movies provide tunes as well from “White Christmas,” “The Polar Express,” and “Holiday Inn.”

Directed and choreographed by instructor Don Grant Zellmer, produced and costumed by Dr. David Kuester with technical direction by Matt Boehm, the show combines the musical talent from performers in the Theatre department as well as the IVCC Show Choir, comprised of community members, alumni, current students and faculty.

“We’ve done a holiday revue at IVCC annually for one night only with great success,” said Zellmer. “This expanded schedule gives our audiences the opportunity to plan ahead during the busy holiday time and choose from six dates.”

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for children 12 and under, and free to IVCC students. Tickets are available at the door one hour prior to performance.

Bureau County Farm Bureau – Free Water Testing for Nitrates @ Bureau County Farm Bureau
Dec 2 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

Free Water Testing for Nitrates

The Bureau County Farm Bureau, has teamed up with Nutrient Stewardship of Northern Illinois to host free water testing open house days for private landowners and operators. Each Friday, an open house from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be held at the Bureau County Farm Bureau, 535 Elm Place, in Princeton.

Tested water can be collected from field tiles, streams or ponds. The testing and results of water samples are for private land owner/operator use only. The water test is free, and confidential, no results will be saved. Results are simply a snapshot in time of nutrient levels and can vary greatly depending on the time of year, temperature, rainfall, and crop and in-field practices.

When collecting samples keep in mind that a measurement of flow (the volume of water leaving a site) would help determine the total nutrient loading into a body of water. Also, an additional measurement of acres being drained would help determine the pounds per acre leaving the field.

Sample Collection Instructions:

    • Sample containers should be clean and free of any residual chemicals or detergents.

    • Water samples need to be at least 8 ounces.

    • Samples should be taken as close to the testing time as possible (preferably within 48hrs).

    • Samples should be kept refrigerated if not being tested immediately.

For more information about the test and additional testing sites visit: http://www.illinoiscbmp.org/Water-Testing/ or contact Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468.

Christmas Services at St Matthews Lutheran Church in Princeton @ St. Matthews Lutheran Church in Princeton
Dec 24 @ 7:00 pm

PRINCETON – St. Matthews Lutheran Church in Princeton invites all to attend two different Christmas Eve Services on Saturday, December 24 at 7 pm and 10 pm, plus Christmas Day at 9 am on Sunday, December 25. 

The 7 pm Saturday service is a Traditional Candlelight Worship using Christmas Carols. Prior to the service a Brass Choir will play in the entry way. 

At 7 pm, the St. Matthews Choir and Bell Choir and pipe organ will help lead worship. Based on Luke 2:1-20, the sermon is A Special Gift.  A Children’s Sermon is also part of this service.  Holy Communion is by intinction (dipping the wafer into the cup).

The 10 pm service is entitled The Legend of Luther and the Christmas Tree.   Prior to worship, it begins informally by sharing cookies and hot chocolate.  After the opening prayers, this service continues by casually entering the sanctuary to sing our opening song.

The 10 pm service includes more favorite Carols on piano not included at 7 pm.  The sermon will draw from John 1:1-14, and Holy Communion is at the communion rail (with individual cups).

 Both Christmas Eve services conclude with singing Silent Night by candlelight.  As most of the two services are different, a person would be welcome to attend both if so inclined.

As an additional opportunity for worship is Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, at 9 amwith Lessons & Carols offering more Christmas Carols not included on Christmas Eve.  Various Bible readings precede each Christmas Carol, and a brief homily will share Tell the Story, a short, true anecdote written by Marj Leegard.

St. Matthews is located at 416 E. Dover Road in Princeton.  For more information go to 416 E. Dover Road in Princeton or email at StMatthewsPrinceton@gmail.com or call at 815-879-6491

Jan 7 @ 2:00 pm

On Saturday afternoon, January 7, the Tiskilwa Historical Society will host professional musician Eric Taylor in an hour of instrumental and vocal music to warm your hearts and chase away the winter blues.

Beginning at 2:00 in the Community Room, Eric will be playing his original compositions as well as covers of the music of The Doobie Brothers, The Band, and Elton John. The setting will be a low-key, coffeehouse style, with Eric singing as well as playing the acoustic guitar.

A Chicago resident and graduate of Columbia College, Eric is the son of 1974 Tiskilwa High School alumnus, Joe Taylor, and the grandson of longtime Tiskilwa resident Barb Philpott.

As a goodwill gesture to the community, the historical society is continuing its tradition offering a free concert, with the “price of admission” being a non-perishable food item, paper product, soap or detergent to be donated to the Bureau County Food Pantry. Just inside the entrance door, you’ll find a big red collection box waiting to be filled.

Following the program, the society will provide refreshments and host a social time in the galleries. Everyone is invited to join us for this afternoon of soothing music.

Bureau County Farm Bureau – Free Water Testing for Nitrates @ Bureau County Farm Bureau
Jan 13 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

Free Water Testing for Nitrates

The Bureau County Farm Bureau, has teamed up with Nutrient Stewardship of Northern Illinois to host free water testing open house days for private landowners and operators. Each Friday, an open house from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be held at the Bureau County Farm Bureau, 535 Elm Place, in Princeton.

Tested water can be collected from field tiles, streams or ponds. The testing and results of water samples are for private land owner/operator use only. The water test is free, and confidential, no results will be saved. Results are simply a snapshot in time of nutrient levels and can vary greatly depending on the time of year, temperature, rainfall, and crop and in-field practices.

When collecting samples keep in mind that a measurement of flow (the volume of water leaving a site) would help determine the total nutrient loading into a body of water. Also, an additional measurement of acres being drained would help determine the pounds per acre leaving the field.

Sample Collection Instructions:

    • Sample containers should be clean and free of any residual chemicals or detergents.

    • Water samples need to be at least 8 ounces.

    • Samples should be taken as close to the testing time as possible (preferably within 48hrs).

    • Samples should be kept refrigerated if not being tested immediately.

Bureau County Farm Bureau – Free Water Testing for Nitrates @ Bureau County Farm Bureau
Mar 10 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

Free Water Testing for Nitrates

The Bureau County Farm Bureau, has teamed up with Nutrient Stewardship of Northern Illinois to host free water testing open house days for private landowners and operators. Each Friday, an open house from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be held at the Bureau County Farm Bureau, 535 Elm Place, in Princeton.

Tested water can be collected from field tiles, streams or ponds. The testing and results of water samples are for private land owner/operator use only. The water test is free, and confidential, no results will be saved. Results are simply a snapshot in time of nutrient levels and can vary greatly depending on the time of year, temperature, rainfall, and crop and in-field practices.

When collecting samples keep in mind that a measurement of flow (the volume of water leaving a site) would help determine the total nutrient loading into a body of water. Also, an additional measurement of acres being drained would help determine the pounds per acre leaving the field.

Sample Collection Instructions:

    • Sample containers should be clean and free of any residual chemicals or detergents.

    • Water samples need to be at least 8 ounces.

    • Samples should be taken as close to the testing time as possible (preferably within 48hrs).

    • Samples should be kept refrigerated if not being tested immediately.

For more information about the test and additional testing sites visit: http://www.illinoiscbmp.org/Water-Testing/ or contact Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468.
