2020 Peoria Historical Calendar Now Available
The 2020 Peoria Historical Calendar is now available. This year, the calendar features photographs of various modes of transportation found in the Peoria area over the years. The theme was selected in conjunction and celebration of the Greater Peoria Mass Transit District (GPMTD)/CityLink 50th Anniversary in 2020. The photographs for this year’s calendar were provided by the Peoria Historical Society and Bradley University Special Collections Center. The historical content for each page was provided by the Bradley University Special Collections Center and the Peoria Public Library.
“We are very pleased to feature historical photos of the modes of transportation that were once or continue to be available in Peoria for the 2020 Peoria Historical Calendar,” said Emily Watson, CityLink Director of Marketing and Public Relations. “The cover features a photo of a bus from the early 1970s, around the time that the Greater Peoria Mass Transit District was established. As we gear up to celebrate our milestone 50th Anniversary in 2020, we couldn’t think of a better theme for this year’s calendar. Transportation, in all its forms, continues to be a vital lifeline to residents and visitors to the Peoria area,” continued Watson.
The 2020 Peoria Historical Calendar is available for a suggested donation of $5.00 at the CityLink Transit Center (407 SW Adams) and the CityLink Administrative Office (2105 NE Jefferson). It makes for a great stocking stuffer for the local history buff on everyone’s Christmas shopping list. All proceeds collected will be donated to the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service.
