Comissioning of the USS Illinois Submarine

October 29, 2016 - 1:30 PM

The Commissioning Date has been set for Saturday, October 29, 2016. It will be held at the Submarine Base in Groton, CT. IPPA donated 470 pounds of pulled pork for the event to represent Illinois at the commissioning.  All products served at the event are from Illinois so it's only appropriate for our amazing pig farmers to be a part of this!  Governor Rauner will be attending as well as Michelle Obama, the official commissioner of the ceremony.  For more information on the USS Illinois, click here.
