A Hutson family reunion is planned beginning at 3 p.m. Aug. 4 with tours of the village, followed by a catered meal at 5 p.m. Reservations are $13 per person and must be received by July 30, to Cindi Frank, treasurer, 13595 E. 1425th Ave., Robinson, IL 62454.

At 8 p.m. the re-enactment of the Hutson Massacre and the forming of the town will be presented. This has no admission fee but a free will offering will be collected. The public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs. Sodas, funnel cakes and popcorn will be available for purchase. A “sampler” quilt will be given away with tickets being sold until 8 p.m.
