Rotary Club learns about Big Prairie

The Carmi Rotary Club’s special guest speaker at Thursday’s meeting was David Brown, who spoke about an area in White County known as Big Prairie.  It was first settled before Illinois even became a state.  He is shown here being presented with a speaking certificate by Sherri Logan.

State Representative candidate Darren Bailey also visited the club meeting.  Photo provided by Kenneth Dwain Harrelson.
