Faces of Sycamore

“Generosity is contagious. People see it in Sycamore, and they just want to jump right in and help out.” This quote is from Mayor Ken Mundy, and really sums up what happens in Sycamore on a regular basis. The Sycamore History Museum has integrated this idea into our current exhibit, “Faces of Sycamore: Our Community, Our Story” to demonstrate how local residents have shaped Sycamore over the years.

This exhibit tells the story of people – from today and yesterday, young and old, men and women, from a variety of backgrounds – all who have made a difference in Sycamore. While the exhibit is a small sampling of people who have shared their talents, we hope that visitors will walk away with ideas about how they can contribute to the place many of us call home. Some of the faces will be familiar such as Wally Thurow, Clifford Danielson, and Yvonne Johnson, while others are less well-known, but they all have service and passion in common.
