The Elgin’ History Museum’s annual Benefit program for this year was set to be a portrayal of Alexander Hamilton by actor Terry Lynch. Due to an unforeseen health issue, Mr. Lynch will not be able to perform. Thoughts and well wishes go out to Mr. Lynch and his family as he recovers.

The Benefit will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017, 6 p.m. at the Elgin Country Club, 2575 Weld Rd., Elgin, IL 60124. Heavy appetizers, raffles, silent auction, cash bar. Deadline to register was Tuesday, November 7.
The true stories of Harry Houdini, the American self-liberator, Europe’s eclipsing sensation, world’s handcuff king, exposer of fraud, original prison breaker, and master magician. He is an inspiration to generations who dare to dream of the impossible. William goes beyond the myth and brings to life the true story of this American icon. This program uses some audience participation.
