Summer fun...

With the Memorial Day holiday just behind us, it’s easy to think about fun, summer days ahead. There are several great events coming soon! But first, we say good bye to a great friend and hello to another…

Thank You, Dorothy! And Welcome Theresa!

After seven years on the staff here at WBNH, our beloved Bookkeeper/Business Manager, Dorothy Abbott, retired in May. Dorothy’s original intent back in 2009 was to volunteer some of her precious time during retirement from her career with CEFCU. She ended up coming on staff and was most valuable for her experience, wisdom, insight and friendship. She will indeed be missed!

In Dorothy’s place, WBNH is very blessed to have Theresa Marshall join us. Theresa comes to us after working for the Pekin YWCA. Like her predecessor here, Theresa is a very young grandma who wants to spend more time with her family. The part-time position here will hopefully serve her well as she joins us. It is most gratifying and assuring to have an experienced bookkeeper and also a sister in the Lord come be a part of our team! Welcome, Theresa!


WBNH wants you to be aware of four great concerts coming soon. And each of these differs enough from the other two in that everyone should be able to enjoy a concert of their liking early this summer! Here’s what is coming:
The Collingsworth Family appears in concert at Bethany Baptist Church on Thursday, June 22, to benefit the Midwest Food Bank. Ticket are $20 and children 15 and under are free with a paid adult. Purchase tickets here.
The King’s Brass appears in concert, sponsored by WBNH, at Bethany Baptist Church on Thursday, June 29. The concert is free; we will have a love offering. Doors open at 6:00 for the 7:00pm concert. Our host church this year will be the beautiful Bethany Baptist Church, located just west of the Shoppes at Grand Prairie. Come enjoy an evening of fun patriotic songs and familiar hymns, presented with flair that only the Brass can give! For more information call 309/636-8850. Or get more information by clicking here.
• Legacy Five appear live in concert Sunday, July 2, 6pm, doors open at 5:30pm, $10 per person in advance / $15 at the door, $25 family pass (parents & dependents, advance purchase only, maximum 6 people).  Purchase tickets here.
Gospelfest Ministries presents a "Camp Meeting Hymn Sing" on Friday, July 7th at 7:00pm at Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria. It's FREE and a love offering will be taken. This event will feature the GospelFest Singers and Choir as well as the fantastic Tracey Phillips from Nashville, TN, on piano!

Everybody loves a Parade!!

The Tremont Turkey Festival will be June 9, 10 & 11. Each summer, thousands come celebrate the fantastic community of Tremont. We invite you to come join us on the streets of Tremont during the Turkey Festival parade!

We’re reaching out to our listeners (that’s you) to invite you to join us as WBNH Parade Pals in the parade on Sunday, June 11 at 4:00pm. Families, strollers, teenagers, adults - all ages are welcome to walk with us in the parade, representing WBNH Radio! We’ll give you a WBNH t-shirt to wear and welcome you to walk alongside the WBNH car and banner, as we remind Tremont and other local communities of God’s presence on the radio waves and beyond. If you are interested in joining the fun, call our office at 309/636-8850. Call anytime; the voicemail works quite well after hours. For more information about the festival, visit the Tremont Turkey Festival website.
