Welcome To Bloomington-Normal!

Welcome to the LocalWiki made especially for the Bloomington-Normal, Illinois community. This LocalWiki was created by the students of Heartland Community College, but anyone is welcome to post or edit any information here. The more people (including you!) who contribute to this LocalWiki the more valuable a resource it will be.

Hello, my name is Tyson Mohr. I am a Bloomington resident who would like to be added as an admin. I apologize for communicating via a page edit, but I've tried multiple ways to reach out to the admins with no success. Please contact me at tysonmohr@yahoo.com if you are an admin so we can discuss how to do this. Thank you!
