Bishop Daniel Conlon, President Sandy Vasko, & VP Brian Conroy at the planting & blessing of the Johnny Appleseed tree at Heritage Village. 10/29/2017
The Reverend Bishop Daniel Conlon of the Joliet Diocese provides a blessing of our Johnny Appleseed tree at the Heritage Village after helping to plant the tree (yes, he did shovel dirt and water it afterwards.) The Illinois State Historical Society was selling 102 trees to one organization per county for the Illinois bicentennial in 2018, and this was the tree acquired for Will County.
Keep your eyes and ears open for other bicentennial events in 2018.
