Millers reflect on the historical 1960s

FULTON, Ill. — The Volunteer Millers of de Immigrant windmill will host some unique programming at the Windmill Cultural Center at 6 p.m. Feb. 12.

Professor Brian Hilton will guide attendees back to the 1960s to explore the eccentric happenings in society during that period of change. For some who lived through that era or others who have read the history books or heard the stories, this was a time of significant change in culture and viewpoint. As Hilton specifically examines “The Quirks and Chaos of 1968," participants can review what led up to those events and the outcome of those times of turmoil, including analysis of its temporary and lasting effects.

In affiliation with Scott Community College, Hilton is known as a history instructor and storyteller. As he shares his knowledge and perspective of the sudden changes that occurred during that time period, those interested are invited to attend to reflect and discuss the happenings of 1968.

The program will be at the Windmill Cultural Center, 111 10th Ave., in downtown Fulton, across from the authentic Dutch windmill.

All programming is free and open to the public. The 2019 Miller programs are sponsored by a grant from the D.S. Flikkema Foundation. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation. The facility is accessible to people with disabilities.
