The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association will visit the Putnam Museum in Davenport, Iowa, and its two special exhibits, “Jerusalem” and “Diana: A Celebration,” on Nov. 9.

The group will depart at 9 a.m. and head back to DeKalb at 3:30 p.m.

The cost is $79 per person and includes roundtrip motor coach, box lunch, admission to the museum, film and special exhibit. Reservations are now being accepted until space is gone.
