    Kevin and Paul Baumann, brothers, are very knowledgeable about local cemeteries and have visited many other cemeteries in their travels internationally. They will start the day with a PowerPoint presentation on Tombstone Art. In the afternoon, Roselawn-Mound Cemetery and Old City Cemetery will be toured, with Paul and Kevin as guides. One just might hear bagpipes in the background and see re-enactments of moments in the life of pioneers who lived long ago. In case of rain, we will meet back in the library (after lunch on your own) for afternoon stories of art in the lives of those who lived here in Coles County long ago.

    This event offered through a collaboration of:  Coles County Arts Council, Academy of Lifelong Learning, Coles County Historical Society and Coles County Genealogical Society

    Registration required by 9/23 at 581-5114.  $10 per person.  16 and under N/C.

    Dr. Zhiwei Liu will briefly introduce the biological background of teas and the tea plant, the classification of teas and how they are made, and how to properly brew different kinds of teas. You will be then taken on a journey back into the Chinese history to find out how this little plant has become integrated in the Chinese culture, from poetry, to daily life of the average folks, and finally to become a government-controlled merchandise, and how these little leaves led the Middle Kingdom into a position to defend itself against invading western powers and eventually opened itself to the rest of the world, although reluctantly. While you immerse yourself in the fascinating stories of tea, you will be invited to taste several of Dr. Liu’s favorite teas directly from China.

    Offered by the Academy of Lifelong Learning; instructed by Dr. Zhiwei Liu, hosted by The Cafe, Klehm Hall.  Seating is limited - registration requested at 217-581-5114 by 10/28.
