Lake Argyle jam
Catch a Shady Grove reunion. From time to time the Shady Grove Band return to Macomb for another 'final performance'. Nearby Lake Argyle provides the perfect spot to start the weekend festivities. For those who attended college in Macomb Lake Argyle was the place to relax and party. It still is. Music was always a good way to get people together. Macomb Still provides a great music scene.
Macomb, Illinois in McDonough County
"Home of Western Illinois University"
On a beautiful weekend in early November, 2007, Allan and I visited Macomb, Illinois, to attend a college football game betweeen Western Illinois University [Macomb} and Southern Illinois University [Carbondale] It was a successful adventure [since Southern Illinois won the game], and we had a really good time in this small Illinois town that I had only visited once before.
We enjoyed strolling the campus, seeing the game, and taking a short visit of the square in Macomb.
