Music, Mickey are among the highlights of January’s events

The new year could seem like it’s off to a slow start in January, after a December full of Christmas activities.

But winter hasn’t stopped everything.

One highlight of the month won’t arrive until Jan. 28, when Mickey’s Magical Wonderland Dinner is planned at Hamilton’s Catering, 110 N. East St. 

Children will be able to visit with Disney characters, play games and receive an autographed book and Mickey ears. 

The dinner will be from 6 to 8 p.m. The cost is $20 a person. Reservations are available by contacting Aleece Ford at 217-370-7015.
