WHERE: Public Affairs Center (PAC) Conference Room C/D, located on the lower level of the PAC on the UIS campus.

DETAILS: Linda Garvert, retired staff member of the Sangamon Valley Collection at Lincoln Library, presents on the people, places and events which established Springfield. Howard Seidel, UIS executive chef, and Randy Williams, culinary instructor/food expert, share tales and ingredients which “cooked up” the legendary horseshoe sandwich and the program’s horseshoe buffet.
