To remember and celebrate the 1913 voting victory in Illinois and the establishment of the Lincoln Highway, there will be 13 concert tickets given away for the May 18 Switchback and MahaRah concert and Lincoln Highway Birthday Party to the first 13 lucky people who come to the DeKalb Area Women’s Center at 7 p.m. Friday.

The DeKalb Area Women’s Center is located at 1021 State St. in DeKalb. There is parking available one half block south on North 11th Street and a wheelchair accessible lift can be used from the alley entrance to the building.
