Eureka, Illinois

Regent: Nancy Bullard

Eureka is a community of people with strong family values filled with pride and spirit.  Its leaders are committed to growth. The community has a hospital,  a  four-year liberal arts college, a golf course, a 240 acre park that has a 36-acre lake noted for its great fishing, and two retirement complexes.  Eureka is the Woodford County seat of government.  Former President Ronald Raegan graduated from Eureka College.

Black Partridge Chapter was organized on October 12, 1978 by organizing Regent Mrs. H.L. McAdams. Black Partridge is a small chapter with members from Woodford and Tazewell Counties. Each year we honor Good Citizens from seven area high schools. We support the DAR schools and donate items and money to the Veteran Homes in Illinois. We send cancelled stamps for veteran rehabilitation and have collected money for the Honor Flight project. We maintain the Lincoln marker on the blacktop road between Metamora and Washington.
