SYCAMORE – There are many amazing stories in Sycamore’s history connected to famous people and important events. However, sometimes ordinary daily life can be equally entertaining and significant.

Ken Mundy has spent many, many hours reviewing Sycamore’s city council minutes. Starting in 2008, in preparation for the city’s sesquicentennial, he began studying the historic ledgers containing the minutes. Quickly, this project grew. Before he finished his term as mayor, he completed his notes of the City Council minutes that covered 1858 to 2016. During the Nov. 2 Sycamore History Museum brown bag lunch, Mundy will explore Sycamore from 1950 to 1969.

The brown bag lunches take place on the first Thursday of the month. During the colder months, the program is held at the DeKalb County Community Foundation’s Freight Room, 475 DeKalb Ave. The talk begins at noon.

This event is free and open to the public; donations are welcome. Bring a lunch and SHM will provide coffee and cookies.
