In the October issue of Illinois REALTOR®, you’ll find brief stories and photos from the 100-year anniversaries celebrated by the Oak Park Area Association of REALTORS® and the Champaign County Association of REALTORS® earlier this year.

Champaign organized three special events to commemorate its 100th anniversary, starting with the Biggest Open House Sunday on May 21 in the greater Champaign area. Next, was a July 27 open house at the CCAR office in Savoy that drew Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen, Urbana Mayor Diane Marlin and Savoy Village President Joan Dykstra as well as Champaign City Council member REALTOR® Angie Brix. On Oct. 27, the association will also celebrate at its Annual Awards Banquet/Gala.

Oak Park celebrated its 100th anniversary on Sept. 12 at its “100th Anniversary Plus Installation Ceremony,” that featured dinner, dancing, drinks, memorabilia and a slide show of past presidents.
