Corner of Lake Avenue and Michigan Avenue
As the closing event to Wilmette’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, there will be a plaque re-dedication ceremony at Gillson Park at the corner of Lake Avenue and Michigan Avenue. The plaque honors Archange Chevalier Ouilmette and the native people whose homeland became the Village of Wilmette. There will be opening remarks from Village President Senta Plunkett and statements from Kathy Hussey-Arnston, from the Wilmette Historical Museum and Sharon Hoogstraten, a descendant of the Ouilmette Family. After the dedication, there will be light refreshments at the Michigan Shores Club.
