Freeport Mayor Appointed to Commission

Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp is given quite an honor. He's been appointed to the National Advisory Committee of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.

Illinios Senator Dick Durbin gave him the nod. The group is in charge of planning events for the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's Birth which is February 12th, 2009.

Freeport was the site of a debate between Lincoln and Stephen Douglas back in 1858.
