Learn about little-known presidential careers

LYNDON – Ron and Connie Koehn of Fulton will speak Sunday at the Lyndon Area Historical Society’s spring presentation.

The Koehns will give a free program, titled “Abraham Lincoln’s River Connections,” at 2 p.m. in the society, 405 W. Fourth St. Ron Koehn is a retired social studies teacher, who worked from 1974 to 2003 at Fulton High School.

Lincoln held a number of jobs before being elected president. He was an assistant steamboat pilot on the Sangamon River, and received a patent for a nautical device he invented when he was a U.S. Representative.

Refreshments will be served after the presentation. Call 815-499-4105 for more information.
