German American Society Yearbook

It is that time of year where we begin to plan our 2015/2016 yearbook. Initial distribution of the 2,000 yearbooks coincides with our Oktoberfest on the Peoria Riverfront in September. Oktoberfest is attended by thousands of people and many picked up our yearbook in 2014. They are also distributed to our members and to those who attend our festivals throughout the spring and summer at Hickory Grove Park. They are also available for those who attend our weekly dinner at the Lindenhof. The yearbooks are used all year long to reference our events throughout the year and are distributed free of charge. It’s a great, inexpensive way for you to promote your business!
If you are interested in placing an ad in our yearbook, you can mail to
Attn: Yearbook,
7601 N. Harker Drive
Peoria, IL 61615
or e-mail your ad copy and any art that you may want to use to Judy Slankard at jazosky@hotmail.com . You can design your own ad, or we can work something up for you at no additional charge. Size and prices are on the attachment. Our deadline for ads is July 31, 2015.
