[January 26, 2013]  MOUNT PULASKI -- Mount Pulaski's Rotary Club is sponsoring a speaking engagement by Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford at Buff's Restaurant, on the west side of the square, at noon on Monday, Feb. 11. Rutherford will discuss the plight of Illinois finances. A question-and-answer period will follow his presentation.

Also, Rutherford will be accompanied by his I-Cash team, who will illustrate how to access the Illinois Treasury account for private assets that have gone unclaimed. Rutherford says 1 in 8 Illinois residents have an asset that can be claimed through I-Cash. The state treasurer's office has collected more than $1.6 billion in unclaimed property that belongs to millions of Illinois residents. This unclaimed property includes everything from forgotten bank accounts to entire estates that have never reached their rightful owners. The I-Cash team will stay afterward to assist any and all who wish to have them go online with their portable laptop computers and check for unclaimed assets.

Attendees will be asked to run their own tab for lunch or may simply order a beverage, dessert, etc. A RSVP is requested so that enough tables and chairs may be set up.
