Volunteer millers to present program Wednesday

FULTON, Ill. — The volunteer millers at de Immigrant windmill will hold a program this month featuring information on presidential rest and relaxation.

Guest speaker Ronald H. Koehn will present a program called “Life’s a Breeze: Presidential Rest and Relaxation (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama)” at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Windmill Cultural Center in Fulton.

In “Presidential R & R from T. Roosevelt to Obama,” Koehn will review some of the hobbies, sports, or other recreational activities used by presidents in the 20th and 21st centuries as important outlets for stress relief, relaxation and rejuvenation.

And some of those activities may surprise those in attendance.

A resident of Fulton, Koehn is a retired Fulton High School social studies instructor who earned both of his degrees at Illinois State University at Normal, a Bachelor of Science in Education with a major in history and a minor in political sciences and a Master of Science in history.

In addition to overseas travel and volunteer work in the community, Koehn keeps busy in retirement by presenting historical programs to various organizations and providing pulpit supply to several area churches.

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.

The facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. The 2014 programs are supported by a grant from the D.S. Flikkema Foundation.
