SYCAMORE – As we start the new year and look to setting new goals, it is always nice to look back and see what we have achieved. The Sycamore History Museum will host its annual meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28.

Last year marked several firsts for the museum, executive director Michelle Donahoe said, and more changes are in store for 2013.

“This past year we made a commitment to attracting families, young children and students,” she said. “I am looking forward to showing everyone what we have done differently this year and our plans for the future. One highlight will be the launching of a new website. Jessica McTague, from HeartGiants, will be talking about the new website and all of the exciting features that will provide online visitors with a better understanding of who the Sycamore History Museum is and what we do best.”

The website project was funded by the DeKalb County Community Foundation and the Roberts Family Foundation, Donahoe said.

The meeting will be at the DeKalb County Community Foundations Freight Room. Ham will be provided; guests are asked to bring a dish to pass. There is a $5 charge, and limited room is available. To RSVP, call 815-895-5762 or email michelle@sycamorehistory.org. This event is open to members, their guests and those interested in learning more about the Sycamore History Museum.
