Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

...from all of us.

1/1/2023 | Pat Cain, Public Program/Visitor Services Coordinator

Baby New Year represents new beginnings—“in with the new, out with the old.” Father Time is an old man with a long beard.

The story goes that throughout the year, Baby New Year will age from babyhood to childhood to adulthood until finally, he becomes Father Time.

Father Time then hands his responsibility for the year over to the next Baby New Year.

From all of us at Museum of the Grand Prairie in the Champaign County Forest Preserve District, we wish the very best of health and happiness in 2023!
