Take Back the Night event coming to Hennepin

HENNEPIN — Village president Kevin Coleman told the Hennepin Village Board at Wednesday’s meeting about an upcoming “Take Back the Night” violence awareness event.

The Freedom House event will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 11 at Walter Durley Boyle Park in Hennepin.

“They have several different speakers coming in,” Coleman said.

In addition, Coleman mentioned a fundraising event called “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” which is a men’s march against violence and rape. The march will be May 18 inPrinceton.

“I’m going to walk in it,” Coleman said.

The proceeds will benefit Freedom House. The board approved donating $100 to support the cause.

In other news, members of the Putnam County Rotary spoke to the board about signing up the village for a Rotary membership.

The recent name change from Granville Rotary to Putnam County Rotary shows the organization’s attempt to include all communities in the village.

“It’s more of a united front for the whole county,” Boggio said.

Coleman said the board will decide upon the $100-a-year membership at a later meeting.

“I believe the Rotary is a very worthwhile organization,” Coleman said.

Other business:

* Reed Wilson, deputy district director for U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Channahon Republican whose district includes much of the Illinois Valley, encouraged the village board to contact him if they ever need any assistance from Kinzinger. He can help with things like grant assistance, legislative inquiries and issues with federal agencies, Wilson said.
