Crescent Jewelers Military Museum and a Stroll around Old Oak Glen

On Monday, September 26, 2016, we are kicking off our meeting series with a “field trip” to visit the Crescent Jewelers Military Museum and walk a bit around the old Oak Glen section of Lansing where the jewelry store is located.  Bill Crescent has had a lifelong interest in World War II and has a magnificent collection of uniforms, medals, helmets, etc. along with photos and stories about many of them.

Meet at the lower level of the Lansing Public Library, 2750 Indiana Ave., Lansing, IL at 6:00 p.m.  We will carpool to Crescent Jewelers.  Half the group will visit the museum in the basement of Crescent. The other half will do a short walk on Torrence Ave. and Indiana Ave….the heart of old Oak Glen, narrated by Paul Schultz and Rich Dust. Then the groups will switch. After the tours, we’ll carpool back to the library parking lot. Not wheelchair accessible.  For information, call Barb oak-glen-funeralDust 708-474-7497.crescent-museum
