West Central Illinois Museum Alliance

During March of 2012, Parrish began acting as a coordinator of the West Central Illinois Museum Alliance, an organization meant to support the museums of six counties in West Central Illinois. At the genesis of the alliance, Carol eagerly contacted organizations from all neighboring counties, including Henderson, Mercer, McDonough, Hancock, and Knox County as well as within Warren County. She contacted all historical preservation organizations that she knew of or that she learned of because she wanted ample involvement in this new endeavor. During their meetings, representatives from each historical society met at one anothers museum locations to discuss the contents of their archives and displays. During these meetings they would discuss how to increase interest and visitation to each location. (Source: "Museums Look to Form Alliance." Gate House. Aledo Times Record, 06 Mar. 2012.

This is a group of different museums from different counties in West Central Illinois to show people what they have to offer in the different museums.
