Log on to this Zoom presentation for a fascinating look at the barge industry and maritime operations along Illinois waterways. Mike Blaske, general manager at Illinois Marine Towing, will provide information about the history of the barge industry and his own involvement in it and what it looks like to work and do business on the river in Will County and beyond. Blaske is a great speaker, and this is a unique opportunity to learn a lot about a little-known industry that has a big presence in the region.
