Pulaski Courthouse Foundation - welcomed everyone to the Mt. Pulaski Street Festival. Tom said the Courthouse Work Week wrapped up with 170 volunteer hours donated to a cleanup of the Com:thouse from the basement to the courtroom. Tom said donations to the foundation have totaled $55,000 + to date; more than halfway to the goal of $100,000 that has been set. Tom noted the $100,000 goal was set this year as a five-year effort and half has been met. He went on to say the Courthouse Work Week resulted in the installation of two new front doors, new back door, and some window sashes. Fred Lipp constructed all. The doors were con- structed of African Mahogany. Allen Sehaal Photo FREE Shippin! to our store on your orders.
