FULTON, Ill. — The Volunteer Educators at the Windmill Cultural Center in Fulton will host its next Wild Winter Wednesday program this week.

The weekly program will begin the season of Lent with Lenten music. The public is invited to gather at 9 a.m. for coffee, tea, and mill flour treats at the Windmill Cultural Center in Fulton. The program will begin at 9:15 a.m.

Charles T. Dykstra will be the presenter. He started singing publicly at the age of 71, when he was pressed into service as a psalmist and cantor at Immaculate Conception Church, where his wife was serving as organist. Dykstra retired from this position shortly after his 80th birthday.

Dykstra will lead a musical program of group singing of the penitential songs of Lent, including two of Dykstra’s favorite Psalms.

Wild Winter Wednesday programs are held Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. from December to the end of March. Programs are free and open to the public.
