Lincoln-Douglas Debate Commemoration Ceremony at Historic Debate Square, Tuesday, August 27

7 pm at the historic Lincoln-Douglas Debate Square, downtown Freeport at 114 E. Douglas Street. This is an annual program to commemorate the historic 1858 debate between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. Freeport Mayor Jim Gitz will be the guest speaker and the Freeport High School NJROTC Color Guard will participate. If you have not been to Debate Square, this is good opportunity to look at it. It is worth your time. Before or after the ceremony, you can go next door to Union Dairy for ice cream and those wonderful burgers with meat from Harbach meats. What a wonderful way to spend a summer evening! (815-975-7631)
